April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse are getting married Saturday in Southfield. Federal Judge Bernard Friedman, who struck down the state’s ban, will perform the ceremony.
DeBoer has said more than 200 people were invited, and the wedding won’t be open to the public.
The couple sued the state after they couldn’t jointly adopt each other’s children. That case grew into a challenge to a Michigan constitutional amendment that recognized marriage only between a man and a woman.
Friedman overturned the state’s gay marriage ban in 2014. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court said same-sex couples have a right to marry.
