We're still applauding this summer's historical SCOTUS gay marriage ruling, and what better way is there to celebrate that "love is love" than with Hollywood's most iconic same-sex marriages? Whether they got married just in the few months following the remarkable Supreme Court ruling or years before, we can't help but be totally obsessed with these famous duos, who have lead the way down the aisle for other LGBT couples, both in and out of the limelight. And along the way, they've totally captured our hearts!

These same-sex weddings run the gamut from sweet at-home ceremonies to epic star-studded bashes — or even making history as the first same-sex couple to get married on an American TV network! Lance Bass and his husband Michael Turchin gave us all serious #weddinggoals when we watched the two of them tie the knot in front of 500 wedding guests. Some are still basking in newlywed bliss, like comedian Tig Notaro and her gorgeous wife Stephanie Allynne, who married in October, while other couples are long-wedded lovebirds, à la the adorable Ellen DeGeneres and Port DeRossi. And others have already started super-cute families, like Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka who are constantly making us jealous with their adorable tiny tots and epic family photos! But either way, we can't get enough of these celebrity same-sex couples, who are living proof that love is love. And with so many engagements between gay and lesbian couples happening in Hollywood at the moment (we're looking at you, Lea DeLaria!). Are those wedding bells we hear?

Flip through to see the picture-perfect wedding photos and the cutest couple pics of these famous LGBT pairs who have tied the knot over the years.
