Celebrations around the nation as the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and declined to rule on California's Prop 8, legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.

Rainbow-colored lights illuminated City Hall in San Francisco on Wednesday evening after the United States Supreme Court ruled on California's Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The court handed significant victories to gay rights advocates in both cases, but fell short of issuing a landmark ruling on same-sex marriage.
