Conan O’Brien was the presiding minister at the wedding of his long-time costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein on Thursday night in New York City. The couple was married on live television on O’Brien’s TBS show, Conan. O’Brien became an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church Monastery earlier in the week, and obtained ministerial documents to legally marry the couple.

The wedding of Cronick and Gorshein is the first ground-breaking same sex marriage ever broadcast on late night television. As same sex marriage is not legal in Cronick and Gorshein’s home state of California, the couple decided to get married during the week-long taping of Conan in New York City. New York passed the Marriage Equality Act in June of this year, allowing same sex marriage.

The Universal Life Church supports same sex marriage, and believes that officially recognized matrimony should be available to all. The ULC has always offered credentials and documentation to legally ordain people from all walks of life. This allows friends relatives to marry gay couples through its online ordination process so that these loving couples can enjoy the matrimonial benefits so many Americans take for granted.
