Same-sex couples showed up at the office of the Fresno County Clerk Wednesday morning after the Supreme Court dismissed Prop 8.
Several couples were at the county office, wanting to get married, and the staff says they're expecting a lot more.
It's a historic day and there is a lot of excitement following the announcement.
Couples showing up say they've waiting a long time to finally tie the knot, but the clerk's office says they will have to wait a little bit longer.
The clerk's office says they are waiting for instructions before they can issue licenses or marry gay couples.
When they are told it's okay to move forward with the marriages, they will be ready because they already have the computer system ready to go from 2008, when same sex marriage was legal.
Fresno County Clerk Brandi Orth said, "We also have a corp of volunteers that help us normally on our busy days to do marriage ceremonies and we're going to be recruiting them again to help us."
The county clerk doesn't have an official date just yet for when we could start seeing same-sex marriages here in Fresno, but says it could be any day.
