SAN FRANCISCO,CA (AP) _ The lead plaintiffs in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned California's same-sex marriage ban have tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall. 

State Attorney General Kamala Harris presided at the wedding of Kris Perry and Sandy Stier on Friday afternoon. 
 
Harris performed the ceremony less than an hour after a federal appeals court cleared the way for gay marriages to resume in the nation's most populous state for the first time since November 2008.
 
That's when voters approved a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a man and a woman. Perry and Stier sued to overturn Proposition 8, along with a Burbank couple who plan to marry Friday evening at Los Angeles City Hall. 
 
The Supreme Court on Wednesday let a ruling stand that declared California's amendment unconstitutional.
