More than 900 gay and lesbian couples in Utah have exchanged vows in the week since a ruling took effect declaring the state's ban on gay marriage invalid.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the state collected nearly $40,000 in marriage license fees from gay couples over the past six days, shattering Utah marriage records.

The bulk of licenses were issued in Salt Lake, Davis and Weber counties, the paper reported.

Holiday hours and resistance to the order from some counties failed to slow down the marriage rush.

β€œIt's been really dramatic,” said Weber County Clerk Ricky Hatch. β€œI would guess on Monday we were seeing 90 percent same-sex couples. It's dropping back now to where it's a lower percentage.”

Salt Lake County on Monday issued 353 marriage licenses, breaking the county's previous record of 85 marriages in a single day. Salt Lake began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples almost immediately after the ruling was handed down. At least four counties waited to hear from an appeals court before acting.

Several counties, including Sevier and Daggett, reported issuing zero marriage licenses this week.
