June 26, 2013 — As the streets of San Francisco rang with celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in favor of same-sex marriage, Joe D’Alessandro, president and CEO of the San Francisco Travel Association, gave this statement:

“San Francisco is where marriage equality began in 2004 and, through the legal ups and downs, we have been a beloved location for weddings, commitment ceremonies and honeymoons ever since.”

“San Francisco looks forward to hosting weddings and celebrations for all loving couples. There is no city more romantic than ours. People from all over the world recognize the values that we have always stood for and today’s decision confirms those so-called ‘San Francisco values’ of understanding and acceptance. We hope some of those couples who were married here in 2004 will come back soon for their 10th anniversary and we look forward to welcoming many more.”
