PHOTOS: Nearly 800 WA Couples Received Marriage Licenses On First Day. Meet Some Of Them

Clerks at marriage bureaus across the state of Washington issued more than 769 licenses  yesterday, the first day same-sex couples could apply for marriage licenses. Obviously not all of them were gay couples, but it’s still a beautiful thing.

Below, view some of the happy pairs who are on their way to the altar.

Because of the state’s three-day waiting period, the first day anyone can wed is Sunday. But we’re gonna wish an early “mazel tov” to all of them!
