Mark Phariss and Vic Holmes, the Texas marriage equality plaintiffs, married today, Saturday, Nov. 21, at a chilly outdoor ceremony at the Westin Greenbriar Hotel in Frisco.

A tent with heaters was added when temperatures plunged more than 20 degrees below normal for the date.

Former Congressman Charles A. Gonzalez presided. He was cheered by the crowd of more than 300 attendees when he pronounced them married “under the laws of the state of Texas.”
