PHOTOS: Gay Utah Couple Wasted No Time, Already Got Married

1476366_514447054755_1152619505_nThe early birds get the marriage license, so a gay couple in Utah found out today. Upon hearing that U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby has ruled it’s unconstitutional to deny marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, Michael Adam Ferguson and J. Seth Anderson (pictured) hightailed it to Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen’s office to request one of their own.

The couple received their license from Deputy Salt Lake County Clerk Wany Morrison, who cried (we presume the tears were from joy) as she handed it to the two young men.

According to Gay Salt Lake, Morrison told the couple she would marry them, but “was pulled out of the ceremony by Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill, who said he wanted to wait on official notice from the state.”

But Anderson and Ferguson were in luck, as Bob Henline, a reporter for QSaltLake who is also an official marriage officiant, married the couple immediately.

Congrats guys!
