Same-sex couples began reciting wedding vows in Washington on Sunday, the first day they were allowed to do so since the state's gay marriage law passed. Hundreds of couples picked up their marriage licenses as early as 12:01 a.m. Thursday, but because of the state's three-day waiting period, the earliest weddings could take place was just after midnight, early Sunday morning. Some courthouses opened at midnight to begin the ceremonies to join the couples in marriage.
