1/10 OPEN GALLERY

Yesterday, Toronto's Casa Loma was host to an extraordinary sight when 115 same sex couples tied the knot at the same time. The Grand Pride Wedding was part of the 2014 WorldPride celebrations, and drew couples of many different faiths from across Canada and beyond. “This marks the transition between accepting differences to embracing them,” Toronto Deputy Mayor Kelly, who opened the service, told the Toronto Star. Same sex marriage has been performed in Canada for 11 years now, after Ontario's Court of Appeal declared existing Canadian marriage laws unconstitutional. In the gallery above, some images from 230 people's happy day.

And over on the Toronto Star's website, see these profiles of two of the couples who travelled great distances to be married at the event.
