Post DOMA, wedding bells on 'Modern Family'?

Wednesday's Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage could have a big impact on one "Modern Family" in particular.

The co-creator of the ABC comedy, Christopher Lloyd, told Entertainment Weekly that we might soon see a wedding for one of TV's favorite couples, Cam Tucker (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson).

"It's a real possibility," Lloyd said. “It’s certainly something we are contemplating on the show in ways we wouldn’t have in prior seasons. ... As you can imagine in Cam and Mitchell’s life, they would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn’t it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it? ... From our standpoint, that’s something to explore.”

Many in Hollywood celebrated the rulings with announcements of their own impending wedding bells: Melissa Etheridge revealed that she plans to tie the knot with her partner, Linda Wallem, and Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard recommitted to marrying one another now that their gay friends can host weddings of their own.

Amid the good cheer, Lloyd admitted that it was hard not to rally around his fictional characters, too.

“It’s a funny thing, sitting around and celebrating for your characters," he said. "We were happy for Mitch and [Cam]!"

The actors who portray the loving couple were gleeful about the rulings themselves.

"Remember the old days when #DOMA was around and gay people couldn't get married in California? Crazy right!?" Tyler Ferguson tweeted.

"Im happy for my gay & lesbian friends. Cheers to gorgeous, wonderful & beautiful weddings, long, happy & fruitful lives and then dying," Stonestreet added.

    Well I guess we fans of 'Modern Family' can console ourselves with the fact that the most flamboyant of the gay couple, Cam, is "openly straight" in his real life :-)

    Sokman I feel sorry for you. I feel sorry for your potential children, to be raised by a bigot must be a challenge. This is not a religious battle it is one of human rights. One day I hope you feel as foolish about your opinions on Gay rights as those who opposed Civil Rights back in the 1960's. Equality is equality, plain and simple.
