Alan Cumming and Grant Shaffer didn't just renew their vows on Saturday. They had a whole second wedding!
The Scottish actor, 46, who stars in The Good Wife
, and his commercial-illustrator partner were married Saturday at New York's Soho Grand Hotel, five years to the day after celebrating their civil partnership
"On the 5th anniversary of our wedding in London grant and I tied the knot again in NYC!!!" Cumming wrote on Twitter,
with a photo of him and Shaffer embracing on the hotel bar.
Cumming later added a second photo,
with the simple caption, "Just married."
At the time of their first union, Cumming said in a statement: "As residents of America we would have loved to marry there, but we hope that soon the civil rights that we have been afforded in the U.K. will be available to all gay Americans, and we look forward to celebrating not only our marriage, but the end of prejudice."
Last June, New York became the sixth and largest U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage.
