New York City council speaker Christine Quinn has married her longtime partner Kim Catullo in a private ceremony in Manhattan.

The city council's first openly gay speaker and Catullo were walked down the aisle Saturday by their fathers. Quinn wore a gown made by designer Carolina Herrera. Catullo wore a cream silk suit designed by Ralph Lauren.

The theme of the wedding was "Spring in New York," and was inspired by the High Line city park. A variety of local flowers were used.

New York passed a law last year allowing gay marriage. Among the guests in attendance were Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as well as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer.

Quinn is expected to run to replace Bloomberg next year.
