Actress, comedienne, and Universal Life minister Sandra Bernhard officiated the wedding between Manhattan natives Georgi Dimitrov Balinov and Bradford Shane Shellhammer. “It all began as all good gay-boy relationships do,” Bernhard said as she introduced the couple, “at Equinox on Greenwich Avenue!” According to The New York Times, Balinov (right), 30, is a vice president for investment banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Shellhammer, 36, is a founder and the chief design officer of the social shopping site, Fab.com. Couple made in gay heaven? Yes. The ceremony, which had a staged mask ball theme, took place with relatives and friends at New York’s Russian Tea Room.

Sandra also tweeted this after the wedding:
