"Criminal Minds" star Kirsten Vangsness is planning to turn her same-sex wedding into a world tour - exchanging vows in every country. The actress, who plays computer expert Penelope Garcia in the TV series, was forced to postpone her wedding plans in 2009 when gay marriage was outlawed in California, but now she and fiancee Melanie Goldstein have plans to turn their big day into a global celebration.

She tells E! Online.com, "We're going to do it in 2013 - no matter what. Melanie wants us to go to every place that it's (gay marriage) legal and just collect marriage certificates from places like Sweden and Mexico like people collect Disney pins. We want to put up a whole wall of them."

"a world tour - exchanging vows in every country." does not include states in the US of A.

I hope that by 2013 they will be visiting every state in the US!

More power to her but she is going to have a very difficult time in the old confederate states especially Texas, South Carolina, Alabama and do not even mention the hate capital of Misissippi where intolerance, bigotry and hate fester like the hottest summer afternoon. What she needs to do is sue these states since the Federal Courts have already ruled that it is unconstitutional to deny someone their civil rights simply because they are gay. Even the Military now is having to acknowledge this.
