The first same-sex couple to get married in Minnesota took their vows just before the stroke of midnight.

Margaret Miles and Cathy ten Broeke were joined by 5-year-old Louis for the ceremony.

Mayor R.T. Rybak had to stall for several minutes to wait until after midnight, the official time for gay marriage to be legal in the state.

The crowd at Minneapolis City Hall erupted as Mayor Rybak announced "I now pronounce you legally married, You may kiss the bride."
