"I always wanted a wedding," Murphy told the Associated Press in an interview published Tuesday. "Not a trip to city hall!" 

Matarazzo and Murphy originally planned to marry in California two years ago, but that dream fell through when Proposition 8 eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Then, when the New York senate voted to legalize same-sex marriage in June, Matarazzo and Murphy decided to say their "I do's" in the East Coast state. 

The pair is planning a fall or spring wedding with around 200 guests. Matarazzo wants to wear an off-white dress, while her bride will wear a white pants suit, "but a sexy one!"

So are children in the near future for Matarazzo and Murphy? "We've always talked that Caroline would have a child first, and then I will go," Matarazzo said, adding that the women want to adopt later.
