(Newser) – It was wedding bells this weekend for Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon. The actress wed partner of eight years Christine Marinoni (who Nixon once called a "short man with boobs") yesterday in New York. People notes that the couple got engaged three years ago at a pro-gay-marriage rally. The two had said they wouldn't marry until they could do so legally in their state. As for the detail SATC lovers probably want to know—what did Nixon wear?—People has the answer: a custom dress by Carolina Herrera.
