WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) — City officials continued to conduct marriage ceremonies at the West Hollywood Library on Tuesday, the day after 138 couples tied the knot there.

Before Monday, City Council members had not presided over same-sex weddings since 2008, when Proposition 8 was approved by voters.

The council members, temporarily sworn in to conduct civil ceremonies, provided the service free of charge for couples who had marriage licenses issued by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder, according to City Clerk Corey Schaffer.

Validated parking was provided, along with a free shuttle that ran between the library and the nearest county registrar-recorder’s branch, in Beverly Hills.

“I’ve seen a lot happen in the gay world over my lifetime, and I never expected this,” said Robert O’Rourke, who married his partner at the library.
