SEATTLE - Jim Nabors, 82, and Stan Cadwallader, 64, were both as happy as a wolf at a sheep party.
The groom and groom exchanged vows in Seattle after a 38 year courtship and quickly returned back to their home in Honolulu, Hawaii for the honeymoon.
Washington state just last month approved same-sex marriages and since then every wedding chapel in the state has been booked solid.
One chapel known as The Chapel of Ear-To-Ear Smiling is open 24 hours a day and has even put in a drive-thru.
Bedroom Pillow Talk reports that guys and guys and gals and gals are coming into the state from as far off as Bangor, Maine, and Key West, Florida.
After the wedding Nabors, who starred as Gomer Pyle, the gas station attendant on the old Andy Griffith Show of the 60s and later as a marine on Gomer Pyle USMC was heard to yell out "Golllll-ly!"
SIDENOTE: George Lindsey, who played Gomer's cousin Goober Pyle on the Andy Griffith Show set in the fictitious North Carolina town of Mayberry, could not make the wedding ceremony but he did send along a message which read: Goober says hey.
