Stephani Durden and Jeannette Cassayre spent two cold nights in the rain waiting to tie the knot. On Feb. 16, the Napa women were married, along with hundreds of other gay couples, at San Francisco City Hall.

On Tuesday, Durden, 35, Cassayre, their three children and 11-month-old grandson made a point to participate at the Candlelight Vigil for the Preservation of the U.S. Constitution.

The event, held at Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Napa, was part of the eight days of festivities observing the second annual Napa Valley Pride Week. The celebrations to bring recognition and support for Napa County's gay community is sponsored by the North Bay Unity League.

Thank Goddess this marriage is not legally recognized! I am so grateful!!! It was a political statement I made with an individual who was not/is not marriage material. Sincerely, Jeannette Cassayre
