The first legal same-sex celebrity marriage in California gets a date!!! George Takei and his partner of over 21 years, Brad Altman have set the date of September 24th to legally tie the knot at the Japanese American National Museum according to People! Takei will beam up some of his Star Trek buddies to be part of the ceremony, the best man is Walter Koenig, who played Chekov, Nichelle Nichols is the matron of honor and Leonard Nimoy is on the guest list.
BTW he also told People the sweet story how he got engaged!
"We knew that the (California State) Supreme Court was going to be coming down with their ruling" legalizing gay marriage, Takei said. "(We'd heard) that it was probably going to be positive. So I was planning on asking Brad to get married.
"We were at home in the kitchen and we had the TV going, and when the word came down suddenly Brad got on his knees in front of me," Takei continued. "And I said, 'What are you doing?' He said, 'George, will you marry me?' I said 'Yes. You beat me to it. I meant to ask you.'"
Takei had something less impromptu in mind: "I wanted to have it happen in a bit more dignified way." But he's "ecstatic" to be getting married, nevertheless, he said. 
Mazel tov to George and Brad and to all the same-sex couples throughout California who can legally get married now!
