In total, nine states and the District of Columbia have approved same-sex marriage. The other states are Connecticut, Iowa, Maine Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont and Washington.

Meanwhile, the weddings continued throughout the day Tuesday.

Clayton Zook, 28, and Wayne McKenzie, 30, married by the waters of the Chesapeake Bay at the Black Walnut Point Inn on Tilghman Island.

“We’ve been together for 6 1/2 years, so this one day doesn’t really change a whole lot as far as our feelings,” said Mr. Zook, of Baltimore. “It does change a whole lot in how we are recognized, and we’re certainly felt more as equal in the state of Maryland now.”
