Mark Reed and Dante Walkup tied the knot last month in Dallas because they found a loophole that makes it OK.

While their boots were planted at the W Hotel in Dallas, an officiate in the District of Columbia legalized their union through Skype.

Though the marriage may be binding inD.C. and a handful of other states, it still won't be recognized in the state of Texas.

That was a very heartfelt and moving wedding. but in Texas it's illegal which in many ways is a real injustice, said gay rights attorney, Rob Wiley.

When people see you've taken that extra time and effort and everything like that, THERE's a little more closer to committment and promisesthan being legal, says Walkup.

But, that may take a lot more effort. Back in 2005, 76 percent voted against same-sex marriage in Texas.
