DENVER, CO. - MAY 01: (l-r) At 3;30 a.m. Sarah Mutter and Isabel Aguirre wait to apply for their civil union license at the Webb Building in Denver CO, May 01, 2013. Sarah said the, 'it's been a blessing. Watching all these couples and weddings, it's been amazing. We might not be able to call it marriage but I can call her my wife.' The Clerk and Recorder's Office opened for business from midnight to 3 a.m. to issue civil union licenses to couples on May 01, 2013 when the Civil Union Act became law. One Colorado offered a civil-union celebration for couples in the building's atrium from midnight to 2 a.m., as judges, magistrates and other officiants performed the ceremonies. Colorado became the latest state to recognize the legal rights of same-sex couples — through marriage or civil unions — when Gov. John Hickenlooper signed state Senate Bill 11 into law March 21.
