A lesbian couple on Friday exchanged vows in Puerto Rico, becoming the first gay couple to marry in the U.S. territory since the Supreme Court struck down gay marriage bans in all 50 states.

According to El Nuevo Dia, writers Yolanda Arroyo Pizarro and Zulma Oliveras Vega wed during a private ceremony held at restaurant Art D'Chocolat. The eatery closed for the wedding and tight security was visible.

Roughly 150 guests helped the women celebrate.

The writer Mayra Santos Febres and singer Choco Orta were among those who attended.

“It's an honor to be here,” Orta said. “It is gratifying that people come together in love. I am thrilled by the fact that my friends will join to have the same rights that all human beings should have.”

Orta recently said that she plans to marry her partner.
