For a fifth time, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has presided over the marriage of a gay couple.

According to The New York Times, the wedding took place Sunday at the elegant Anderson House, the Washington headquarters of the Society of Cincinnati.

The couple, Michael Kahn, the artistic director of the Shakespeare Theater Company in Washington, and Charles Mitchem, an architect who works in New York, sealed their vows with black and gold Harry Winston rings.

“But the most glittering moment for the crowd came during the ceremony,” the Times wrote. “With a sly look and special emphasis on the word 'Constitution,' Justice Ginsburg said that she was pronouncing the two men married by the powers vested in her by the Constitution of the United States.”

Conservatives have called on Ginsburg to step down from a case challenging gay marriage bans in four states. A ruling, expected next month, could strike down the nation's 13 remaining bans. Conservatives who say Ginsburg's willingness to marry same-sex couples makes her biased in the matter are certain to make hay of the Times' description.
