Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown Celebrates Same-Sex Marriages

Huntington Woods - It's been more than two years since hundreds of LGBT couples in Michigan were rushing to local courthouses to recite marriage vows on March 22, 2014, a day after a federal judge struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriages.
