Illinois couples celebrate first day of legalized marriage equality

The following video is tonic for a tiring day. Marriage equality became officially legal in Illinois yesterday and of course you know what that means - Mass wedding in Chicago!!:

According to the video's description:

On the first day of marriage equality throughout the state of Illinois June 1, 2014, Unity in Chicago hosted "Married in Unity," an all-inclusive, non-denominational group wedding ceremony in the Unity garden at the church. Rev. Heidi Alfrey, the church's senior minister, officiated the ceremony for 40 same- and opposite-sex couples. Among them were couples making commitments without legal documentation and married couples renewing their vows.
