Congratulations are in order for Rufus Wainwright. The 39-year-old Grammy-nominated singer has tied the knot with his longtime partner, the artistic director of Toronto's Luminato Festival Jorn Weisbrodt, in a Montauk ceremony attended by a group of family members and close friends.

The nuptials took place on Thursday, August 23 at the Clam Bar in nearby Napeague, according to Rolling Stone. PEOPLE reported the Salome Chamber Orchestra and David Aron Carpenter performed and so did Rufus' sister, singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright. DJ team AndrewAndrew and Ronson provided music on the dance floor.
