A rooftop wedding portrait of Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni
30 May 2012

She wore a custom pale green gown by Carolina Herrera and she wore a dark suit with a green tie.

The first she is actress Cynthia Nixon and the second she is her new wife, Christine Marinoni.

The longtime couple got married on Sunday (27 May) in New York City and have just released their first official wedding day photo taken on a rooftop.

No details of the ceremony have been made public other than a brief statement on Monday announcing that it had taken place.

The couple, together since 2004, got engaged in 2009 and were among the vocal advocates for legalizing same-sex marriage in New York, where they live.

Marriage equality came to the state last summer.

A perfect wedding gift would be a second Tony Award for Nixon who is nominated for her performance in the play Wit. The awards will be handed out June 10.
