One the one year anniversary of his TBS show, Conan O’Brien officiated a gay marriage ceremony between ‘Conan’ costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein.

Cronick and Gorshein were already planning to wed while the show was visiting New York, since gay marriage is still not legal in California, but instead of marrying at city hall, O’Brien suggested they perform the ceremony on stage at the Beacon Theater instead.

O’Brien, who was ordained at the Universal Life Church, officiated in front of family, friends and the audience.

The wedding may have been the first same-sex marriage ever to be performed on television, and whether it was designed as a ratings stunt or simply a favor from one friend to another, it seemed to be a touching and heartfelt experience for everyone involved.
