Danny Leclair and Aubrey Loots, the first gay couple to get married on a Rose Parade Float kiss after saying 'I do' during the 2014 Rose Parade on January 1, 2014 in Pasadena, California.

For the first time, a gay couple was wed during the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

Despite prior calls to boycott the event because of the same-sex marriage, a sizeable crowd gathered around the giant wedding cake-float where Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair exchanged their vows.

The parade’s organizers, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, said the float was a good representation of this year’s theme: “Dreams Come True.”
