View Comments

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A South Dakota couple got to say their “I Dos” Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis.

They’re hoping their ceremony will help change a policy in their home state.

“Congratulations to this fabulous couple. Twenty-seven years together. Twenty-seven years of family. Twenty-seven years of love and commitment,” Mayor Betsy Hodges said at the ceremony.

Nancy and Jennie Rosenbrahn were married Saturday afternoon.

Mayor Betsy Hodges officiated their wedding at the Community of Christ Church in Minneapolis.

When they return home, the newlyweds will join two other couples in filing a federal civil right lawsuit against South Dakota.

They’re hoping to reverse a 2006 constitutional ban, and want the state to recognize marriages performed out of state.
