In honor of New York state government's decision of marriage equality last month, this week's New Yorker cover features two beautiful brides gliding down the Brooklyn Bridge hand in hand. We think it's lovely. Props!

This weeks Barry Blitt cover illustration, featuring two brides strolling down the Brooklyn Bridge, continues a long tradition of (sometimes gay-)wedding-themed covers that The New Yorker summarizes in a blog post. The covers have gone from zanily buzzythe neon-pink backdropped couple in 1994to sardonicthe groom in white silk schmatte in 2004to this weeks rather sweet cover, with the bridge stretching forward into the horizon.
