In a first, -- the online companion to black women's magazine Essence -- is featuring a lesbian couple in its Bridal Bliss section.

Aisha and Danielle Moodie-Mills are the lucky couple. Photos from their wedding and a brief history of their relationship appear on the website this month.

"For 40 years, Essence has been the leading voice for black women," said Aisha Moodie-Mills, president of Synergy Strategy Group, a Washington, D.C.-based political consulting firm. "We are honored that Essence chose to tell our story of love and commitment as it makes this historic step forward."

Earlier this year, Essence began working with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to increase the brand's coverage of LGBT issues. GLAAD brought Aisha and Danielle to the attention of the editorial staff.

"Essence has a history of covering the LBGT community, and the inclusion of Aisha and Danielle's wedding in our Bridal Bliss feature is a natural extension of that commitment," said managing editor Emil Wilbekin. "The Moodie-Mills are a wonderful couple with a beautiful love story, and aims to support and celebrate black women in all their diversity."
