The Washington Blade reports that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor U.S. Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor officiated on Saturday the wedding of a lesbian couple Ingrid Duran and Catherine Pino. The two are founders of D&P Creative Strategies, an organization that seeks to increase the role of corporate, legislative, and philanthropic efforts in addressing concerns of Latinos, women, and LGBT people. 

From photos posted to Facebook, it appears to have been a Mexican-themed wedding that included a cake with pink skulls.

According to an unnamed source who was familiar with the event, the wedding took place in Washington, D.C., at Potomac View Terrace and guests included: U.S. Treasurer Rosa Gumataotao Rios, Rep. Xavier Beccera (D-Calif.), Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-Calif.), and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.).

Two other SCOTUS Justices have also performed same-sex marriage ceremonies as well. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has officiated at least two same-sex when she presided over the ceremony for a former student of hers from Columbia Law School, and this year when she renewed the vows of U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius and his husband, Clayton Bond. Justice Elena Kagan officiated a ceremony in Maryland of a former law clerk in 2014. Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor presided over a marriage in 2013 at the Supreme Court.
