Friday, June 26, 2015 was a historic day in the United States of America. The Supreme Court ruled, in a 5-4 decision, that it was legal for same-sex couples in all 50 states to be married. There were lots of tears, smiles, hugs, and enough beautiful photos to fuel the nation on pure elation.
Couples lined up at courthouses around the country to be joined in holy matrimony recognized by the federal government.

Some couples celebrated outside the courthouse. Others shared photos on Instagram from their past marriages or commitment ceremonies. And some just celebrated from the comfort of their own homes.
And one couple shared their special story in a touching video.
