BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Hundreds of people gathered together on the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol to celebrate the Supreme Court's ruling to lift the ban on same-sex marriage. 

LGBT supporters waived rainbow colored flags and held hands to show their support of the decision. Bonnie Bodyach says she was filled with joy when she heard the news Friday. 

"I'm feeling great," said Bodyach. "This is a great day for the country and a great day for Louisiana." 

Carl Landry and Lambert Roam have been together for 18 years. They have already made plans to get married in September. 

"We have been waiting for so long, and finally we get the opportunity to get married. I was in shocked," said Roam. 

Not everyone was on board with all the excitement, like Will Wallace who disagreed with the ruling because of his religious beliefs. 

"I believe our founders didn't establish this country for this to happen," said Wallace. "I feel like it's against the bible." 

Capital City Alliance, Baton Rouge Pride, MCC Baton Rouge and Equality Louisiana put together the rally to remember the historic day.
