New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn married her long-time partner in Manhattan on Saturday night.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, U.S. Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer and U.S. Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Nydia Velázquez were among the 300 people who gathered at Highland Stages in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District to witness the presumptive 2013 mayoral candidate and Kim Catullo exchange vows. Retired New York Court of Appeals Chief Judge Judith Kaye officiated the wedding.

The women’s fathers escorted them down the aisle.
