INDICE DE GALERIAS
MINNEAPOLIS, MN - It was a historic day a few weeks ago when the first same-sex couples said "I Do" in Minnesota.
The first couples to say their vows were Margaret Miles and Cathy Ten Broeke, and Al Giraud and Jeff Isaacson.
That happened shortly after Midnight, following words from equal rights leaders and some of the politicians who voted same-sex marriage into law.
In the hours since, as many as 40 couples had gotten hitched!
KIMT's News 3's Annie Szatkowski was live at Minneapolis City Hall and spoke with Margaret and Cathy shortly after they said their vows.
They said, they weren't nervous standing in front of hundreds of people, in fact, they described it as being surrounded by family.
And the most important person standing by was their son, Louis.
Miles and Ten Broeke said, "It's one of the things that I think is the most moving for us is that Louis has understood that he has two moms that are married. But he's also understood some people don't consider us married. He's embraced the complexity of that and that this simplifies things for him and makes it easier for him to talk about his two moms without other kids asking questions."
The morning was about a lot more than the normal pomp and circumstance normally associated with weddings.
