Description: In February of 2004, San Francisco began issuing marriage certificates to same sex couples. Hundreds of gay and lesbian couples lined up for the chance to finally commit in a public venue, in front of friends, family and the state. 'Marry Me: Stories from the San Francisco Weddings' reveals the emotional tale behind four of the couples who were married, as told in their own words. Joel and Fred met on a whim square dancing and forged a life together. Julia and Jennifer share their lives as ambitious co-chefs at a civic center eatery. Mark and Mark's relationship was highly influenced by their traditional backgrounds, and they hope to pass along these values to their two children. Annie and Rochelle, self-described soulmates, didn't even intend to have a ceremony when they arrived in San Francisco to get their marriage license. Yet they were so moved by their surroundings they felt compelled to do more than just "be counted." 'Marry Me' focuses on these relationships -- the emotions of the marriage day and the love stories of these couples, intermingled with interviews with a florist, several officiants, and many other couples who helped to create this snapshot of a historic moment.
