Seattle City Hall will open for a few hours on Sunday, December 9 to celebrate what are expected to be the first weddings of gay and lesbian couples in Washington state.

Passage of Referendum 74 on November 6 allows a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers to take effect on December 6. Washington’s three-day waiting period means the state’s first weddings won’t begin until Sunday.
