Same-Sex Couples Begin Marrying In Wisconsin

Same-sex couples began marrying in Wisconsin late Friday following a federal judge's strike down of the state's same-sex marriage ban! 

Take a look at some of the happy couples!

Matt Schreck, 37, and Jose Fernando Gutierrez, 35 became the first Wisconsin couple to get married, after a marriage certificate application and ceremony at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.

According to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee County issued about 68 marriage licenses by the end of Friday night. Dane County issued 61. 

Wisconsin Attorney General JB Van Hollen has already filed a request for an emergency stay on same-sex marriages in the state. 

In the meantime, congratulations to the happy couples!!
