After pledging to love and care for each other in “sickness and in health,” Stefan Poulin and Chad Stein were married Thursday afternoon on the front lawn of their Cottage Grove home.
With their family in attendance, the couple was wed Aug. 1, the first day the Minnesota same-sex marriage act became law.
The ceremony was conducted by Rev. Oby Ballinger, pastor of Community United Church of Christ in St. Paul Park.
