What does the legality of same sex marriage in a given state have to do with an on base religious ceremony? Religious wedding ceremonies are just that - merely ceremonial. They confer no rights.
That aspect is a clear infringement on religious freedom.

I believe they are refering to something like a marriage certificate sort of wedding. Because why a wedding "ceremony" is just that, it is a whole different story when it comes to the state actually recognizing the union.
