Photos: More civil unions than marriages at Denver license bureau in first half of May

Want proof there was a lot of pent-up demand for civil unions? According to Denver's Office of the Clerk and Recorder, the city issued 255 civil union licenses during the first two weeks of May, as compared to 245 marriage licenses.

Granted, 114 of the civil-union licenses were issued during Denver's May 1 midnight civil-unions event. Our Kyle Huninghake was on hand to capture images of the love. Check out highlights below and click to see our complete "Denver's First Civil Unions" slide show.
