Three couples,Mary Gonzalez and Catherine Craig, Stephanie Ashley and Olivia Sovereign and Scarlett Christoph and Rachel Faulker, all from North Dakota, crossed the border into the equality-friendly state to get married at the Polk County Government Center, which stayed open past business hours to accommodate and celebrate the legalization of same-sex marriage.
