Michael Kahn, artistic director of the Shakespeare Theatre Company, and Charles Mitchem, an interior design architect, were married on Sunday, May 17.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiated. Ginsburg is a longtime friend of Kahn and an avid theatergoer. Kahn and Mitchem have known each other for more than seven years and have homes in D.C. and New York.

The wedding took place at the Anderson House on Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., in the ballroom and a reception for 150 guests was held in the garden and catered by Occasions.

The Supreme Court is currently weighing litigation challenging marriage bans in four states; a decision is expected next month.
