Last night, Conan O’Brien officiated the wedding of a gay couple on his TBS talk show in New York City. The couple was show’s costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein. The televised event went down at New York’s Beacon Theater in front of their friends and families.
The comedian — absent of his usual joking attitude — took his officiator job very seriously.
“This is for real,” he said at the beginning of the Jewish ceremony. “We are gathered here today in this beautiful place to witness the joining of two lives.” The couple stood under a chuppah as they exchanged incredibly cheesy and romantic vows. But of course they were cheesy and romantic in the adorable wedding sense that makes you tear up a little as you giggle or say “aww.”
“Anyone would be happy to wear one of your designs,” Gorshein said to Cronick. “But no one is possibly happier than I am to wear your designs.” Cue giggle.
Cronick then said “I vow to fill your every day with so much love. Cameras or no cameras, I am here today and I am yours forever.” Cue tearing up.
To end the ceremony, both of the men stomped on glasses before O’Brien pronounced them “husband and husband.” [via E!]
Sigh. This wedding video makes me so happy. The couple looks like they’re really in love and excited about getting married.
What do you think? Do you think Conan O’Brien did a good job officiating the wedding? What do you think about him including it in his TV show?
