Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski married Betty Iverson on Sunday in a private ceremony.

The newlyweds have two adopted sons — Archie, 6, and Jack, 11.

"Yesterday our family was brought together by marriage," said a post on Biskupski's Facebook page.

"We have always been bonded by love, but now we are joined by law," the post said. "As our dear friend Kate Kendell highlighted while performing the ceremony, our family and all families like ours have come so far to make joyous days like this possible. We truly are stronger together. #love."

Biskupski, the first openly gay mayor of Utah's capital, became engaged to Iverson last year after her successful campaign for mayor.

Iverson is a government-relations consultant for Johnson & Johnson.

Kendell, a former staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah, is now the executive director of the San Francisco-based National Center for Lesbian Rights.
