SAN FRANCISCO — Kris Perry and Sandy Steir, lead plaintiffs in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban, tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall on Friday, about an hour after a federal appeals court freed same-sex couples to obtain marriage licenses for the first time in 4 1/2 years.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris officated the ceremony, who declared them “spouses for life.”
