After an eleventh-hour attempt by the state's top judge to halt gay marriage, Alabama began issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples as planned on Monday.
"Same-sex couples in Alabama are saying 'I do' this morning," WBMA reported.
The U.S. Supreme Court voted 7-2 Monday, denying Alabama's request for a stay on a federal decision making gay marriage legal in the state. (Video via WBMA)
