Stacy Wood, (L) and her wife Michele Barr leave San Francisco City Hall after getting married in San Francisco, California June 26, 2015. Earlier in the day the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution's guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law mean that states cannot ban same-sex marriages. With the ruling, gay marriage will become legal in all 50 states. Barr and Wood have been together for almost 29 years. "We didn't realize when we picked this date that it would be such a monumental day for the country," said Barr. "We just thought the Supreme Court wanted to give us a really great wedding gift. Now we just need to know where to send the thank you card." REUTERS/Elijah Nouvelage TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY - RTX1I0FZ
