Just after 3:00 a.m., Corrinalyn and Jennifer Guyette apply for a marriage license at the King County Recorder's Office on December 6, 2012 in Seattle, Washington. "It was so great," said Corrinalyn. The two have been together for six years. The office opened at 12:01 a.m. to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples for the first time after Washington voters chose to legalize gay marriage in November's election.
