Twenty gay and lesbian couples exchanged vows on an Acapulco, Mexico beach on Friday.

The mass wedding consisted of 15 male couples and 5 female couples. Roughly 200 people attended the celebration, according to the AFP.

Guerrero Governor Rogello Ortega and his wife served as witnesses.

At 17, Alejandra Jimenez Soler was among the youngest people to get married. She said that her family refused to attend the ceremony.

“I feel terrible that my family isn't here to support me because they should accept you as you are,” she said.

Last month, Mexico's Supreme Court effectively legalized such unions when it declared state marriage bans unconstitutional.

In response to the decision, Ortega's administration ordered civil registries to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. Acapulco Mayor Luis Walton Aburto unsuccessfully attempted to block the couples from marrying, arguing that local codes prohibit officials from issuing such licenses.
