75 Unforgettable Moments From Minnesota's First Day Of Marriage Equality

August 1, 2013. History made.

Posted on

The festivities began at the city hall in downtown Minneapolis at 10:30 p.m. when the public was allowed in...

1. The five levels filled up with people trying to get the perfect spot for the night's (well, the morning's, because the law didn't take effect until midnight) first weddings.

19. THERE WAS CAKE.

It was from hometown company Betty Crocker. Up until very recently, Betty Crocker hadn't taken a stand on marriage equality, so this was a really sweet (lol see what I did there) gesture.

75. The mayor asked if there were any more people in the crowd. It's 6:44 a.m. He ended the night by saying, "The chapel of love is officially closed."
