VIDEO: The first day of the freedom to marry in Utah

A beautiful new video produced by DArcy Benincosa captures the amazing first day of the freedom to marry in Utah, on Friday, December 20. On that day, U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Shelby ruled in Kitchen v. Herbert that laws prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying in Utah are unconstitutional. The ruling took effect immediately, and hundreds of loving same-sex couples have married in the state.

Yesterday, Judge Shelby denied requests for a stay on the ruling, meaning that the freedom to marry continues in Utah. 

The description of the gorgeous new video reads:

December 20, 2013 was an emotional, landmark day for the people of Utah and all over the world. It was announced that Amendment 3 in Utah was overturned and same sex couples were allowed to marry. People rushed downtown to be married, show their love, and show us what courage looks like.
