HONOLULU (AP) -- Same-sex couples are taking advantage of Hawaii's newfound aloha for gay weddings.
Six couples tied the knot early Monday, shortly after midnight, when a new law allowing same-sex couples to marry took effect.
A Waikiki resort was hosting mass ceremonies for anyone wanting to sign up, while a group of clergy who pushed for the new law planned to host a wedding for an openly gay Unitarian minister at a church near downtown Honolulu.
Hawaii's marriage laws allow couples to register for a license and be married the same day, a process conducive for tourists only in the state a short time.
Couples can sign up for a license online, then be verified by any license agent throughout the state.
