The freedom to marry came to Hawaii Dec. 2 with the first ceremonies taking place throughout the state after the clock struck midnight.
Among the first were Rev. Dr. Jonipher Kwong and Chris Nelson, who were wed by Rabbi Peter Schaktman at the First Unitarian Church (pictured) with numerous faith leaders and Gov. Abercrombie in attendance.
Other ceremonies also took place at the Sheraton Waikiki.
Equality Hawaii congratulates all the couples taking advantage of the new law that all worked so long to achieve.
