Maines first married gay couple: We finally feel equal
By Abigail Curtis and Seth Koenig, BDN Staff

PORTLAND, Maine - The first gay couple to be married in the state of Maine took their vows in a short ceremony in the Portland city clerks office at approximately 12:25 a.m.

'We finally feel equal and happy to live in Maine,' said Steven Bridges, who married Michael Snell less than a half-hour after same sex marriages became legal in the state.

By 2 a.m. Saturday, the line had emptied out after a total of 15 gay and lesbian couples had acquired marriage licenses in Portland, with six of those couples exchanging vows on the spot. Another couple was married on the city halls front steps and then went back inside to return their license.
