Jack Evans, 85, and George Harris, 82, are the first gay couple to get married since the legalization of gay marriage in the U.S.

The advanced couple have waited over half a century for this moment.

The men, together for 54 years, are the first same-sex couple to wed today in Dallas County.

Their nuptials came just hours after the Supreme Court's landmark decision enabling gay couples to marry in all 50 states.

Evans tells of his wedding day:

"You would have been blown away by the crowd there, there must have been 450 people there, people waiting to get married, reporters. It was amazing. Just amazing."

When asked if he ever thought this day would happen, Evans says: "Ten years ago it was not within the realm of possibility."

"It is a lot of work to have a wedding in one day. We're having a blast!."

Happy married life to the happy couple and as many more years possible together.
