Rufus Wainwright (r), singer-songwriter and composer, recently married German-born theater producer Jorn Weisbrodt (l). Wainwright is the son of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and the late Kate McGarrigle. The couple has been together for more than five years.

The pair, who were engaged in November 2010, exchanged their vows at the Wainwright home in Montauk, NY. Wainwright proposed to his husband over an Indian meal at a London restaurant. Their save-the-date came in video form and showed the singer writing the details in the sand with a stick.
