Judge Dennise Garcia looks on as Jack Evans and George Harris wipe tears of joy from their eyes after becoming the first same-sex couple legally married in Dallas County.

Jack Evans and George Harris today (Friday, June 26) became the first same-sex couple to receive a marriage license in Dallas County, and just minutes later, the first same-sex couple to legally wed in Dallas County.

After County Clerk John Warren and his head assistant clerk issued the license to the couple, they walked down the hall to a justice of the peace courtroom where Judge Dennise Garcia, who attends their church, was waiting to first waive the 72-hour waiting period and then perform their wedding ceremony as the crowd packing the courtroom cheered.

Here is a video — somewhat shaky, I admit — of their wedding.
