A western Michigan county is among at least four in the state issuing wedding licenses to same-sex couples.
 
Harbor Unitarian Universalist Congregation Pastor Bill Freeman told The Associated Press he officiated at several weddings Saturday at his Muskegon church.

He says Muskegon County Clerk Nancy Waters began to issue licenses after 9 a.m.
 
The licenses are being issued a day after Michigan's gay marriage ban was struck down by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman.

Some Clerks' offices have special hours to accommodate couples.
 
Attorney General Bill Schuette asked a higher court Friday to freeze the landmark ruling while pursuing an appeal.
 
Freeman was concerned the appeals court would approve Schuette's request. He says "we want to get these weddings done while they're legal.''
