SEDONA - Sedona's Mark and Greg Luckey married in California just four days before Arizona's same-sex marriage ban was struck down.

"We're a little still in shock and overwhelmed by the decision -- delightfully overwhelmed," Mark said. "It's really nice to know that our rights as a married couple are the same now as other married couples."
