In the latest sign of just how far the administration has embraced same-sex marriage and the expansion of federal benefits to married gay couples, the Department of Labor headquarters building hosted a rooftop wedding between a worker and his partner Wednesday night.
Officials confirmed Thursday the wedding between a regional solicitor and his longtime mate. A reception in a conference room followed. No names were offered.
An official called it a low-key ceremony during which no federal funds were used. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez did not attend.
It is believed to be the first-ever same-sex marriage in a Cabinet-level headquarters building
