Costa Rica has legalised same-sex marriage. A couple, hence, got married on live broadcast to capture this joyous moment.
President Carlos Alvarado Quesada said the change gives same-sex couples the same rights as any other family. "Together, under the same flag, we will build a better nation," he tweeted. The president called "empathy" and "love" key factors that will allow Costa Rica to progress as a nation.
Here are some pictures from the wedding ceremony of the first same-sex couple to legally get married in Costa Rica.
