Vice President Joe Biden presided over his first wedding ceremony Monday, which saw the marriage of two longtime White House staffers.
Biden posted a photo on Twitter with the message, “Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys.”
His wife Jill later tweeted, “Love is love!”
The two staffers, Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie, were wedded in an intimate ceremony attended by their families in Biden’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory, CNN reports. The Vice President obtained a temporary certificate from the District of Columbia to perform the wedding.
Biden publicly endorsed same-sex marriage in 2012.
