Eric Garcetti: 'You May Both Kiss the Bride'

After a handful of marriages last night (including the couple that challenged the ban on same-sex marriage and got it overturned), this morning marked the beginning of M Day as thousands of couples across the state celebrated love and rights. For Los Angeles, the first official marriage within city limits was officiated by Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti. And this one was close to home: Shane Goldsmith (flower dress) and Monica Granados (shirt/pants) met in 2004 when they were both staff members for Garcetti. It's only fitting that the man that brought them together originally brings them closer on this special day.

Ed Fuentes from Blogdowntown was kind enough to take some photos for LAist.
