#TBT: Colorado Civil Unions

On May 1, 2013, the first day that same-sex civil unions were recognized in Colorado, lots of same-sex couples exchanged vows. Stark Bellamy Photography was on hand to capture the day.

This week, a State Court judge declared the same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional and couples have begun to apply for licenses in Boulder, CO. With this exciting milestone, Colorado become the most recent state to move the needle toward marriage equality.
