A wedding at West Point of two graduates will be the first at the storied military academy between two men.

Larry Choate III, class of 2009, will marry Daniel Lennox, class of 2007, on Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy’s Cadet Chapel.

West Point hosted two same-sex weddings of women in late 2012, more than a year after New York legalized gay marriage. But this is the first time two men are being wed at West Point.

Choate said Friday that the landmark Gothic chapel is a special place and it’s an honor to be wed there.

Both men are out of the military. Lennox, from Washington, D.C, is getting his master’s degree in business administration at Harvard University in Massachusetts. Choate, from Seattle, works at the business school there.
