Joe Biden Officiated Same-Sex Wedding Ceremony

Vice President Joe Biden officiated his first wedding ever — and it was for a same sex couple.

Biden officiated over the wedding of two longtime White House staffers, Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie, at the Naval Observatory on Monday, his office said.

Posting a photo of the ceremony on Twitter, Biden wrote, "Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn't be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys."
