Hundreds of gay and lesbian couples made history on Sunday as they lined up first thing in the morning at New York's city clerk's offices to exercise their newly-gained right to marry.
The first couple to wed in the city was Connie Kopelov, 85, and Phyllis Seagal, 77 (above). The adorable couple met 23 years ago at a senior center and had been longing for this moment for years.
"I am breathless. The fact that it's happening to us, that we are finally legal and can do this like everyone one else. It's mind boggling."
We are so happy for Connie and Phyllis and for the hundreds of couples who were finally able to marry. This is such a momentous occasion. Now, go enjoy your honeymoons!
