When the Supreme Court halted gay marriage in Utah, officials announced that recognition of same-sex marriages in the state was "on hold." The state did not invalidate the marriage licenses and told county clerks to process same-sex marriages that had already been performed.

In the same statement, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said he would work with state agencies to determine specific policies.

The federal government decided to recognize same-sex marriages performed in Utah before the Supreme Court put gay marriage there on hold.
