The ceremony between Air Force Sgt. Erwynn Umali and his partner Will Behrens was held at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.
Air Force Col. Timothy Wagoner, who serves as the chaplain for a denomination that is against same-sex relationships, even attended.
The event was a marker of "how things have changed for active-duty clergy in the nine months since the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy was repealed and gays could serve openly," according to the Associated Press.
