MPD Chief Janeé Harteau marries longtime same-sex partner [PHOTO]
On Friday, Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau became the highest profile gay Minnesotan to get married since same-sex marriage became legal on August 1.
Harteau tied the knot with fellow Minneapolis cop Sergeant Holly Keegel in a ceremony officiated by -- who else? -- Mayor R.T. Rybak.
On Saturday, Harteau tweeted out this picture from her wedding night:

Over the weekend, Harteau told CJ that after a quarter-century of being with Keegel, tying the knot wasn't a big deal.
"I couldn't be any more married," Harteau said. "Now we'll just make it legal."
