Two-time Olympian Johnny Weir is grateful for finding husband Victor Voronov.

Weir, who has returned to competitive figure skating, and 28-year-old Atlanta-area lawyer Voronov capped off 2011 by tying the knot in a civil ceremony at the New York City Courthouse.

The 27-year-old Weir tweeted that the couple will hold a wedding in the summer.

Weir and Voronov attended last weekend's Human Rights Campaign (HRC) annual gala held in Midtown Manhattan.

Speaking to, Weir said that he never allowed himself to dream of his wedding day.

“I never thought it would be a reality for me, just because we weren’t allowed. And then all of the sudden we were. And it's been the biggest, most beautiful, life changing thing for me to be married to Victor, and to have the same legal rights as everybody else. And I think that's what it's all about.

Voronov added that he was happy to be married.

“I think that being legally married is very, very important,” Voronov said. “As far as our marriage is concerned, we're married, it's accepted and it's wonderful.”

“Thank God. Thank God for Victor,” Weir added. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
