Newlywed Photos That Will Make Kim Davis's Head Spin


Since the antigay Rowan County, Ky., clerk couldn't see the nuptials from her jail cell, we collected the most heartwarming images from today's long-overdue victory.

More than 70 days after the U.S. Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land, same-sex couples were finally able to legally marry this morning in Rowan County, Ky.

The long-awaited moment signals the end (for now) of a legal standoff between the couples seeking to marry and antigay County Clerk Kim Davis, who remains in jail after refusing to abide by a federal court order that she issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Among the first same-sex couples to obtain a marriage license this morning in Rowan County were April Miller and Karen Roberts, one of the four couples (two straight, two gay) who filed a federal lawsuit against Davis after she ordered her deputy clerks to cease issuing licenses to any couple in order to avoid licensing same-sex couples.

Louisville-based reporter Toni Konz of local Fox affiliate WDRB was on the scene in Morehead, Ky., today, snapping photos of the same-sex couples who received marriage licenses, in addition to the angry protesters -- including Davis's husband, Joe, who was the first to arrive at the courthouse this morning -- who called the newlyweds "perverts."

Find below some of our favorite moments from the Rowan County Clerk's office this morning, collected here in hopes that Kim Davis will someday look back on today and realize the end times are not upon us, simply because #LoveWins.

Of course, there were some Davis supporters on hand in Morehead, set on trying to ruin the celebration:

Ultimately, though, the sun rose today on a more fair Kentucky.
