Even Zach understands that pizza isn’t normal wedding fare: “If you really and truly want pizza for your gay wedding in Indiana…” No, I really and truly don’t.
Just because some people in Indiana refuse to cater gay weddings doesn’t mean all hope is lost.
Zach Braff and Donald Faison, who are perhaps best known for starring together in the beloved sitcom “Scrubs,” are apparently willing to toss some dough for same-sex Indiana couples.
