Gay marriage is legalized in New York. Hurray! We capture the reaction on Twitter

As New York City starts to recover from an awesome weekend of glitter and rainbows, the after effects of the legalization of gay marriage are starting to settle in. Gay marriage is officially legal in New York and here to stay, amen! And since the New York Legislature legalized same-sex marriage just in time to celebrate Pride Week, the Gay Pride Parade was a little extra fab-u-lous. So as happy people were flocking to Stonewall and to 5th Avenue to celebrate and chant "I do" we hit our Twitter feed to capture the reaction.

From celebrity tweets to New York party promoters, here are our Top 10 Gay Marriage Reaction Tweets:
