A recently released video shows behind-the-scenes footage of the weddings of the two gay couples who challenged the constitutionality of Proposition 8.

The 5-minute video produced by the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group formed specifically to challenge California's now ended gay marriage ban, begins on a day last month four-and-a-half years after voters approved Proposition 8. It's of course the day that the Supreme Court handed down its ruling paving the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.

During a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court, Paul Katami says: “Today is a good day. It's the day I finally get to look at the man that I love and finally say, 'Will you please marry me?'”

A smiling Jeff Zarillo offers a big smile in return and the pair share a kiss.

Plaintiff Kris Perry is asked by a reporter, “What's next?”

Perry smiles, then answers, “We're getting married. That's what's next.”

Perry and Sandy Stier marry two days later at San Francisco City Hall in a ceremony officiated by Attorney General Kamala Harris. 90 minutes later, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa presides over the Los Angeles City Hall wedding of Katami and Zarrillo.

Harris declares Perry and Stier “spouses for life,” while Villaraigosa says to the men, “Let me pronounce you married.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
