Houston mayor weds longtime partner in California

Posted: Updated:

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has announced that she and longtime partner Kathy Hubbard have married in California.

A statement issued by Parker's office says the mayor and Hubbard married in a sunset ceremony Thursday at a private residence in Palm Springs, Calif.

Parker's election in 2009 made Houston the largest U.S. city with an openly gay mayor. While California allows gay people to marry, Texas does not recognize same-sex marriages.

A small group of family and friends, including Parker's mother and Hubbard's sister, attended the service.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Paul Fromberg, rector of St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco. The couple chose Thursday as their wedding date because it was the 23rd anniversary of the beginning of their relationship.
