Photos: First Marriage Licenses in Washington!

Officials in King County, Washington began issuing marriage licenses at midnight last night (so technically, this morning) to same-sex couples. Because of the state's three-day waiting period, the first weddings will take place on Sunday.  If you were there this morning, or plan on getting married in Washington in the coming weeks, we want to hear from you! Share your story with us here. GLAAD is working to share the stories of couples in Washington, Maryland and Maine in an effort to show others what marriage is truly about.
