ST. PETERSBURG — Council Member and likely mayoral candidate Darden Rice announced on Facebook on Wednesday that she’s now married.

She and her partner, Eve Epstein, eloped. Rice posted a photograph of the pair on Facebook holding the newly minted marriage record.

Across the top is a banner that says the certificate was issued in Pinellas County on May 15. The time stamp appears to say 4 p.m.

Rice, who could not be reached for comment, wrote that a ceremony and celebration will be held in a few months at the St. Pete Pier, which remains under construction.

The Council Member is a likely 2021 mayoral candidate, and has already started raising money.
