Ever since it was announced last month that the state of New York would allow same sex marriages, hundreds of couple began planning to have their nuptials the moment the law came into effect.

Well, Sunday (July 24) was the big day. Amongst the throngs taking the plunge were "Avenue Q" stars Ricky and Rod. But they aren't your averaged same sex couple, they're puppets.

Over the past nine years the puppet couple has fallen in love nightly in the Tony Award-winning musical. Now they have made it official.

Also in attendance was fellow puppet, Kate Monster, who served as flower girl, along with some of the shows puppeteers, Jennifer Barnhart, Jed Resnick and Howie Michael Smith.

This was truly a historic day and we wish the happy couple all the best.
