Today the Supreme Court of The United States ruled in a landmark desicion that ALL states must allow same-sex marriage in the case of Obergefell Vs. Hodges.
"The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State."
Earlier this morning I was in Northwest DC completing a job for one of my corporate clients when I received the news via post after post on social media. I had a hour of spare time and decided to venture over and experience the excitement in this historical moment. As I drove by I could see crowds of people walking over. I parked as soon as I could and joined them.
Upon my arrival I was immersed in the crowd of many supporters, many members of the media and overwhelming emotion. I spotted a couple that had just met up with each other near the courthouse. They were in tears of joy, smiling ear to ear in excitement that they could now marry legally in their home state of Ohio. Many other stories like this were happening all around me.
I am so honored to have witnessed this historical moment and am so excited with what has to come. There is still so much work to be done within the LGBT community for equal rights. My job is the best there is to be capturing beautiful couples in love!
