Why Mariah And Tessa’s Wedding Is Making History For The Young And The Restless

For ‘Teriah’ fans as they are known on social media, Mariah and Tessa’s wedding will be what they have hoped for since 2017, when Mariah Copeland first admitted she had feelings for Tessa Porter (via Soaps.com). It will also be the first same-sex wedding in “The Young and the Restless” 49-year history and actresses Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks can’t wait for the audience to see it. They also get the significance of the event.

“I feel especially honored to be a part of this moment because I understand the importance of it,” Fairbanks told People. “It’s like the best coffee you could ever have going into a scene because you know what this isn’t just a couple talking, it’s also representing on screen so many people who haven’t really had that opportunity to be themselves, and every time I come to work I am reminded of that.”

Fairbanks added that she takes pride in what the show is doing by airing this wedding as a big soap event and can’t wait to see what’s to come for them.
