Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank will marry his longtime partner Jim Ready in a private ceremony over the weekend.

A Frank spokesman told the Boston Globe that the 72-year-old representative would prefer not to disclose his wedding date.

But speaking on C-SPAN's Newsmakers in May, Frank spilled several details, including that he is marrying on a “Saturday afternoon” and “a holiday weekend” in July.

The Globe also reported that Maine Representative Chellie Pingree and her husband, hedge-fund manager Donald Sussman, plan to attend Saturday's ceremony. The Newton Tab reported that Newton Mayor Setti Warren and his wife Tassy will also be in attendance.

On Newsmakers, Frank said President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were welcome at his wedding, provided they leave their Secret Service detail at home.

“If he and Michelle wanted to come, I would be delighted and honored to have them. But he will bring the Secret Service.”

“I don't want to be accused of having shut down the entire region for a five mile radius on a holiday weekend,” he said. “I don't want my guests going through a magnetometer.”

“[I]t would ruin the party to have the Secret Service” there.

“I'm not critical of [the Secret Service], but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party,” he added.

Frank also hopes to marry Ready twice. The congressman told a crowd in Portland, Maine that they are looking forward to a do-over next year in Ready's home state of Maine, provided voters approve a gay marriage law in the fall.
