Former Miss Alabama and Miss America 2005 Deidre Downs married her girlfriend, attorney Abbott Jones, in a ceremony Saturday at the Birmingham Museum of Art, People magazine reported.

"Saying our vows in front of our family and friends and making that commitment to the love of my life was the most meaningful part of the day for me," Deidre Downs Gunn, 37, a UAB obstetrician-gynecologist specializing in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, told People.

Downs Gunn's 8-year-old son gave his mother away and acted as best man, People said.

"I feel overjoyed to have found someone to share life's adventures," Downs Gunn told People. "The wedding was beautiful and special, but it was really just the beginning of our life together. I'm so lucky to have a wife who fills even small, everyday moments with great joy."

After the modern Southern Romance-theme wedding, about 200 guests ate Southern foods such as mini chicken and waffles, fried okra, fried green tomatoes and buttermilk biscuits.

Even here in AL, the times they are a-changin'. Can't imagine the papers running this story in such a neutral tone when I was growing up here.
