MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A church in Milwaukee is holding free same-sex weddings, but yesterday the church was empty. No couples turned up to be married there after Judge Barbara Crabb’s ruling to stop issuing licenses.

Still the First Unitarian Society church says they’ll be ready to welcome couples when they can legally wed.

“We did want to open our doors to the community in this manner because Unitarian Universals have worked hard for many years on the issue of marriage equality,” Revered Dena McPhetres said, “We have been behind that all along.”

The pastor said they stayed open for four hours yesterday with no same-sex couples coming by. She said they wanted to be there just in case any couples still wanted to get married.
