LOS ANGELES — For the first time in over four years, a same-sex couple has tied the knot in Los Angeles.

Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, two plaintiffs who successfully challenged Proposition 8 before the Supreme Court, were married Friday evening by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at City Hall.

The pair announced their plans minutes after a federal appeals court cleared the way for the state to immediately resume issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a brief order saying it has dissolved a stay it imposed on gay marriages while a lawsuit challenging the state’s voter-approved ban on such unions worked its way through the courts.

In San Francisco, plaintiffs Kris Perry and Sandy Stier married earlier Friday, with state Attorney General Kamala Harris officiating.
