Conan O’Brien Officiates A Same-Sex Wedding On Live TV
Conan O’Brien is back in New York City for a spell, affording him the opportunity to officiate a wedding between his longtime costume designer, Scott Cronick, and Cronick’s boyfriend David Gorshein at the lovely Beacon Theatre.
Scott was walked down the aisle by Bravo host Andy Cohen, to a song I couldn’t quite hear over his jacket.
The couple, joined by their friends and family, recited their own vows under a very autumnal orange and gold floral chuppah that perfectly complimented Conan’s hair.
Some are suggesting that this is the first same-sex wedding performed on television. But I — keeping track of all things TV, gay, and wedding industrial complex-related — can think of at least one other, performed in Brazil back in 2008.
Either way: Congratulations to the happy couple! And to Conan, for becoming a part of late-night TV history.
