Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on Saturday officiated over the wedding ceremony of Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank and Jim Ready.

According to Reuters, Patrick amusingly added that Frank and Ready had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike.

“Barney was beaming,” said Texas Congressman Al Green, who attended the Newton, Massachusetts ceremony. “It was no different than any other wedding I've attended when you have two people who are in love with each other.”

Frank was the first congressman to voluntarily come out of the closet in 1987. He now has the distinction of being the first sitting congressman to enter into a marriage with a member of the same sex.

Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, have been involved since 2007.

The couple married at the Boston Marriott Newton in suburban Boston.

Also attending the ceremony were Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi and Massachusetts Rep. Niki Tsongas.

Frank also hopes to marry Ready twice. The congressman told a crowd in Portland, Maine last month 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.
