Gay wedding profile: Jo Deutsch and Teresa Williams

Jo Deutsch, 53, left, and Teresa Williams, 56, married on May 18, one week shy of 30 years together. They wed in Maryland, where same-sex marriage has been legal since Jan. 1. The state’s General Assembly passed a law permitting it in February 2012, and a slim majority of Maryland voters—52 percent—approved the referendum on Nov. 6, 2012. (Photo copyright Judy G.

Jo Deutsch and Teresa Williams' wedding: 'It has been a family affair'

June 11, 2013

Before the end of June, the Supreme Court will likely issue rulings on two landmark same-sex marriage cases. In one, United States v. Windsor, the court could determine whether the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violates the constitutional rights of same-sex couples. The other, Hollingsworth v. Perry, tackles Proposition 8, California’s ban on gay marriage that voters narrowly passed in 2008. Ahead of the decisions, Yahoo News asked same-sex couples who married since the arguments ended to share stories and photos from their weddings and how they feel as the rulings loom. Featured in this slideshow are Jo Deutsch and Teresa Williams, who married in May in Maryland. (All photos are copyrighted by Judy G. Rolfe from rolfephotography.com) —Tim Skillern
