The City of Seattle erected five "chapels" inside its city hall over the weekend, so the government facility could host 138 same-sex wedding ceremonies on Sunday.
Same-sex unions became legal in Washington as of Sunday due to the passage of a referendum in the November election.
"In preparation for the festivities, local artists Jennifer Zeyl and Celeste Cooning, with help from city staff, are decking out the building’s large lobby to make decorations for some 140 planned weddings,” the city’s website states. “The decorations consist of several self-contained areas that will act as individual ‘chapels’ within the lobby space.”
