States That Have Legalized Gay Marriage (Hooray!)

Our philosophy? #loveislove, so we’re thrilled to celebrate even more weddings as more states choose to legalize gay marriage. With seven states signing gay marriage into law this year alone, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the country follows suit. Yay!  The latest state to legalize gay marriage? Illinois! A bill allowing gay marriage was approved by the state legislature on Tuesday, November 5 and will go into effect June of 2014. Below, see see which states have legalized gay marriage (there’s 15 so far!).
