For New York couple, wedding a 'momentous and joyous step in the right direction'

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 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 have married since the court arguments ended to share stories and photos from their wedding and how they feel as the rulings loom. Featured in this slideshow are Chris Toland and Chris DeCarlo, who married in May in New York. —Tim Skillern
