(SOURCE)   Elisa Noel rushed to the county clerk’s office with her partner immediately after learning that a federal judge overturned Utah’s ban on gay marriage.

They waited in line for a wedding license and were married in an impromptu ceremony punctuated with Noel giving the officiant a high-five.

‘I can’t believe this is Utah,’ Noel said moments after a ceremony that took place about 3 miles from the headquarters of the Mormon church.

Others had a similar reaction after a ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby that declared Utah’s voter-approved ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.
