Schill, left, and Elise Campbell grab "hitching post" hardware on a lectern as they move it into place in one of five spots in Seattle City Hall where weddings will take place the next day, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012, in Seattle. Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a voter-approved law legalizing gay marriage Wednesday, Dec. 5 and legally-recognized weddings for gay and lesbian couples can begin in Washington state on Sunday. City Hall will host the wedding ceremonies for 140 gay and lesbian couples Sunday, with 16 volunteer judges officiating. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
