Awwww sweet gay love.
Lance Bass Weds Michael Turchin, Elton John Marries David Furnish
This weekend was big for gay weddings. N’Sync singer Lance Bass tied the knot in a televised wedding to his boo thang. And Elton John made his marriage legal to longtime partner David Furnish.
Here’s the details on Lance’s nups via People.com reports:
When asked to describe his wedding, the one word Lance Bass likes to use the most is “unique.”
“There were a lot of things we wanted to add into this wedding that are very unique,” the former ‘NSYNC member tells PEOPLE of his Nov. 20 wedding to artist Michael Turchin.
Wedding planner Sharon Sacks – who orchestrated Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding earlier this year – oversaw the celebration on Saturday, but Bass, 35, and Turchin, 27, were extremely involved in the process.
Just days before they headed down the aisle, the loving couple gushed to PEOPLE about every detail of the festivities, which will be televised as part of an E! special, Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, airing Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
“We needed a space that really reflected our dream wedding,” Bass says of choosing to marry at the legendary Park Plaza Hotel. “We wanted it to have a royal vibe, and everything about the place is over the top and gorgeous. It was exactly the backdrop we needed.”
“The ballroom is all wood-paneled with a wood-carved celling,” Turchin adds. “It looks like you are in an old castle.”
“The guest list started at 750 people,” Bass says. “We had to knock it down to 300. That was the worst part of the whole planning process.”
Among those who made the cut were Bass’s pal Lisa Vanderpump, Cheryl Burke and his former ‘NSYNC bandmates JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick.
(Justin Timberlake is currently on tour and was unable to attend, but Bass says the “Mirrors” singer “feels bad” about missing the festivities.)
“Once we got engaged, we knew that we didn’t want a normal wedding party,” Bass says. “We didn’t want to choose bridesmaids and groomsmen because we thought people would get their feelings hurt.”
But Bass and Turchin did end up with a wedding party of sorts that included their three dogs, as well as a fleet of supermodels as their flower girls.
“I thought it would be very unique to a gay wedding to not do the traditional little flower girls,” Bass says. “They are going to be wearing these incredible, unique dresses that our friend Oday Shakar is designing for us. They are kind of like modern-day wedding dresses.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
Looks like fellow E! star Kris Jenner was also on hand with her black boo Corey Gamble.

Elton John took to Instagram to share photos from the big event. The wedding took place at his home in Windsor. The couple actually had a civil ceremony back in 2005 but since gay marriage is now legal in England they made it official this weekend.
That’s his backyard by the way
