The teenagers got married in front of the Lincoln Memorial surrounded by family and friends, as same sex marriages are illegal in Tennesse. They later posted a video of their special day on YouTube.
The three-minute clip shows the grooms getting ready for their wedding and making their commitment in front of their assembled guests. It has already been viewed and shared thousands of times.
News of their apparently ‘history-making’ wedding has stirred up a huge response from the online community.
One commentator said: “gay or straight. 19 is too young to get married. Congratulations! I wish for you a long, and happy marriage!”
Another wrote: “That’s the nastiest most, most disgusting thing I have ever seen!!!!!!
Harris and Anderson’ nuptials are set to feature on an upcoming episode of My Teenage Wedding.
