Carolyn Conrad and Kathleen ``K-P'' Peterson took their vows in Brattleboro, Vermont, just after midnight, when the state's new civil union law went into effect.
The law grants the couple the same benefits that married couples enjoy in Vermont, such as hospital visitation rights and some tax breaks.
As far as religious organizations are concerned the United Church of Christ will bless same sex unions while, Southern Baptists, Mormons, Catholics, Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Methodists are against the unions.
