The ceremony came hours after U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Shelby signed his 53-page ruling nullifying Utah’s ban on gay marriage.  Utah Governor Gary Herbert called Shelby an activist Judge.  Herbert said he was working with his staff to determine the best course of action to defend traditional marriage.
