The Orange County clerk-recorder will open its doors Saturday because of the demand for same-sex wedding licenses.

Orange County may be the closest place for Los Angeles-area residents to get a marriage license before Monday. Los Angeles County issued only one same-sex marriage license on Friday — to two plaintiffs who filed the federal lawsuit that eventually struck down Proposition 8.

L.A. County wouldn’t reopen its offices until Monday.
