As you know by now, next week’s episode of The Fosters features Stef and Lena’s Big Gay Wedding. (The first gay TV wedding post-DOMA’s extinction, by the way.) Having now watched the episode twice, I can assure you that it’s going to compel you to tears and sentimental smiles, just like ABC Family is promising. Did I tell you guys that Rev. Camden from 7th Heaven is Lena’s dad and he’s the one performing the ceremony? Because he is and it’s a lovely throwback to so many lesbians’ church-going youths. E! Online has released a behind-the-scenes peek of the wedding with commentary from gay co-creators Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige. You can watch the full video here.
Also, take a look at ABC Family’s official promo photos.

Are you excited for The Fosters wedding? Here, let me spoil something for you: Unlike Los Hombres de Paco‘s much-hyped gay vows, both Stef and Lena actually survive their big day! Hurrah, equality!
