Laura Potter and Marina Brown tied the knot at McPherson Park on Saturday morning with Pastor Brian Merritt of Palisades Community Church officiating the ceremony. The couple looked lovingly at one another as they exchanged vows and rings, becoming “wife and wife.”
Pastor Brian, who risks censure for performing the ceremony, read from the first book of John (“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made.”) and from Song of Songs 8 (“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?”). The Bible, incidentally, was checked out from the public library.
Laura, a retired Army nurse, put in long hours as a medic for Occupy DC.
