Gay couples may have been waving rainbow and American flags outside a San Francisco courthouse Wednesday celebrating the overturning of Proposition 8 but they still cannot get married.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker may have overturned California's same-sex marriage ban Wednesday but he also granted a a stay request.

Walker wrote that he wants to decide whether his order should be suspended while the Prop 8 supporters pursue their appeal in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
