Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni

After getting engaged a few years back at a gay rights rally, Cynthia Nixon and longtime girlfriend Christine Marinoni finally tied the knot this weekend.

Nixon's publicist released a short statement, saying, "On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York. Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera."

The couple, who has a son together (as well as Nixon's children from a previous marriage), had been waiting until their home state legalized same-sex unions to make it official. Nixon said at the time of their initial engagement, "In an ideal world, we'd like to [wed] in New York, when it becomes legalized. We're not going to wait forever, but we're hoping it's just around the corner," adding later, "I don't mind a long engagement, which this one is surely turning out to be!"
