June is LGBTQ Pride Month, and there's no better way to celebrate it than sharing these touching same-sex wedding photos.

At the end of the 20th century, gay marriage ceremonies without legal recognition became more and more popular. The first nation, however, to provide law for the marriage of same-sex people was the Netherlands (2001). This marked a turning point in public approval for marriage equality, and as of 2 May 2017, same-sex weddings are legally recognized in 22 countries.

From lavish country weddings to quick visits to the city hall, these photographers have captured some of the most emotional gay marriage moments. Scroll down to enjoy images that prove love knows no boundaries and vote for your favorite ones.

How many years did these two wonderful women wait for their special day? How many weddings did they attend,holding hands and thinking it would never be possible? I hope their special day was as moving as the image of these two women in love..My heart goes out to you both. Congratulations! !

These are the ones that hit me most... the ones you KNOW have waited their entire lives to be able to formalize their union like everyone else. How many unaccepting family member and friends did they lose along the way only to finally have this satisfaction? LOVE this picture!
