There were wedding bells Thursday at the state capitol. Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon officiated a same-sex marriage Thursday afternoon, making the day's ceremony extra special for the happy couple.

Simon received her certification online in order to conduct the wedding services for two of her friends and political supporters.
