The two women who today became the first lesbian couple to receive a marriage license and be legally married in Texas exchanged their wedding vows this morning in front of the same building where they were denied a marriage license eight years ago, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Sarah Goodfriend is a unpaid policy advisor to Austin state Rep. Celia Israel. She advises primarily on environmental and energy issues. Suzanne Bryant is an attorney in private practice in Austin. The two have been a couple for 31 years, and they exchanged their wedding vows in front of the Travis County Clerk’s office this morning with Rabbi Kerry Baker officiating.
