A federal judge ruled Utah's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional Friday, and Salt Lake County began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
According to the Salt Lake County Clerk's office, a record 115 to 120 marriage licenses were issued Friday.
Do you realize how much Utah loves marriage? They love it so much. And the gays broke the record.
Because they love marriage just as much as the rest of the state.
There were even more people in line who wanted to get married, but they couldn't because the county building closed.
Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker was there performing marriages.
And he wore a fantastic red vest.
State Sen. Jim Dabakis and his longtime partner Stephen Justesen were married.
And everyone was really happy.
Utah. This is the place.
