Two women wed in county church in union of politics and tradition (St. Louis)

At the solemn moment before the rings were exchanged Saturday afternoon, the minister performing the wedding ceremony misspoke.

He described the rings as symbols of enduring love which the couple entered as "husband and wife," to which the crowd of about 200 guests burst into laughter.

"Excuse me - life partner," said the Rev. Daniel O'Connell. "I guess my ceremony needs an update."
