Former NSync member Lance Bass has revealed that he initially said “no” to an E! special documenting his wedding to Michael Turchin.

Bass and Turchin, an aspiring actor and model, married last month in Los Angeles, after getting engaged in New Orleans in September, 2013.

E! contacted the couple with the idea for a wedding special the night Bass proposed.

“We immediately said, 'Hell no. There is no way [we] would do this,' but we came around really quickly,” Bass told The Clarion-Ledger. “After we thought about it for a few hours, we knew this could be something really big and special for the LGBTQ community around the world.”

The wedding special, titled Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, will make history as the first such special between two men when it airs February 5. The special follows Bass as he visits friends and family in Mississippi and features an NSync “mini reunion.”

“It's a mini reunion,” said Bass. “Unfortunately, Justin [Timberlake] wasn't able to make it; he was stuck in Atlanta on tour. Four of us [JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Bass] were there, and we had a grand old time. And yes, we even did a little Bye, Bye, Bye.”
