On the morning of Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States issued it’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges declaring marriage a constitutional right open to everyone, including gay and lesbian couples. The Travis County Clerk’s office started issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples at 10:30 AM that same day. Austin photographer Juan Moreno stopped to grab a few pictures of couples getting their licenses along with their friends and family who came out to support them.

At 8 PM Friday night, the Travis County Clerk’s office posted a tweet saying it had issued 313 marriage licenses.
