Love Among the Tents: Two Women Marry at Occupy DC Site - Video

Love Among the Tents: Two Women Marry at Occupy DC Site - Video

Marina Brown and Laura Potter, two of the original Occupy DC protesters, tied the knot last weekend

Two women closely associated with the Occupy DC movement were married on Saturday at the site of the former encampment.

Marina Brown and Laura Potter were wed by a Presbyterian minister and wore head scarves to show respect for all religions (Brown and Potter were previously married in a Pagan handfasting ritual 11 years ago). The ceremony took place among 30 people at McPherson Square, site of the Occupy DC movement until protesters were evicted in February. Brown and Potter pitched their tent at Occupy DC on the first day of the protest, only returning to their Virginia home twice a week.

After the women were married--Washington, D.C., does indeed offer marriage equality--guests enjoyed a low-key reception with pizza and Girl Scout cookies. Watch below:
