At 5:01 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time ...

Marriage Equality became a reality in the State of California!

Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times

The first couple to officially start living happily ever after were Robin Tyler and Diane Olson, married by Rabbi Denise Eger on the steps of the Beverly Hills Court House.


A Prayer for This Day

With joy and love we celebrate the couples who will be married today. Grant them peace in their homes and love in their hearts that they might always create a place for faith in both.

Open our hearts to those who would protest our love and call us names. Guide us to be whole in our faith and know that their words are not God's.

May our covenants be blessed and our marriages honored. Let every court be called a house of marriage for all couples.

Grant us health, prosperity and peace on this day and forward.

And let the people say: Amen!
