PHOTOS: The First Same-Sex Marriages in Wyoming


Wyoming's attorney general opted not to appeal a district court ruling in favor of marriage equality, and that cleared the way for these images of happy couples marrying on Tuesday.


Just before 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday, Wyoming became the 32nd U.S. state (plus the District of Columbia) to embrace marriage equality.

Following a federal judge's Friday ruling that the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage violated the U.S. Constitution, Wyoming Gov. Matthew Mead and Attorney General Peter K. Michael announced that they would not appeal the ruling striking down the ban. True to their word, on Tuesday morning the Republican officials filed notice with the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming that they would not fight the decision, clearing the way for same-sex couples to begin applying for marriage licenses immediately.

And judging by the photos of happy newlyweds circulating on Twitter, marriage equality has already been good for the Equality State:
