Same-sex couples in California don’t have to wait any longer to get married — the roadblock to issuance of licenses was lifted today.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit “lifted its stay on an injunction which ordered state officials to stop enforcing Proposition 8,” the Los Angeles Times reports. “With the court’s action, counties can now begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses.”
The couples who brought the suit challenging Prop. 8, struck down Wednesday by the U.S. Supreme Court, will be the first to marry. Check back for updates from the Advocate.com

We’ve been talking about Gatsby inspired looks for months now and the trend remains. With the addition of Lady Mary Crawley’s I-Do’s on the last season of Downton Abbey, bridal gown designers are adding the sleek elegance of the Edwardian era their collections.
Such a fun way to capture the true colors of your wedding party.
