WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is getting invited to be a part of a lot of weddings lately.

Wedding officiants from Washington to as far away as Australia say couples, both gay and straight, are asking them to incorporate quotations from the justice’s June 26 opinion legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide as part of their wedding ceremonies.

Kennedy’s words aren’t the first to make it into a marriage ceremony, but his opinion seems to have won an even wider audience.

Lucy Moyer and Joyce Tipton are including the words in their Oct. 10 wedding in the backyard of their Fulshear, Texas, home. Tipton says “it’s a little bit of a way of saying thank you.”
