WASHINGTON—Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor on Oct. 29 officiated a gay couple’s wedding inside the Supreme Court.

The Associated Press reported O’Connor married D.C. residents Jeffrey Trammell and Stuart Serkin during a private ceremony in the court’s lawyers’ lounge.

Trammell and Serkin’s nuptials are the second same-sex wedding that has taken place inside the U.S. Supreme Court since the justices in June found a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and struck down a portion of California’s Proposition 8. The AP reported Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg over the weekend officiated a gay New York couple’s wedding.

Ginsburg in September officiated the wedding of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser and economist John Roberts.
