Memphians Bradley and Chris Brower, who held a wedding ceremony in Memphis on June 13th, were issued the first marriage license in Shelby County at around 11:30 a.m. The couple will be granting an interview to the Flyer
later this afternoon.
The Shelby County Clerk's Office began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples right after the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling in favor of legal gay marriage in all 50 states.
