George H.W. Bush was an official witness to a same-sex marriage this past weekend.
Mr. Bush and his wife attended the wedding of two friends in Maine.
The former president signed the marriage license after an impromptu request from the couple.
News of the witnessing became public after one of the brides posted a picture Sunday on Facebook showing the former president signing the document.
