MONTAUK, Long Island, N.Y. -- Singer Rufus Wainwright and his longtime partner Jorn Weisbrodt were married on Thursday at their summer home in Montauk, the quaint seaside town on the eastern tip of Long Island.

Among the 250 wedding guests were Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Alan Cumming, Julianne Moore, Carrie Fisher, Lou Reed, Antony Hegarty, Natasha Lyonne and Mark Ronson.

Wainwright, 39, was born in Rhinebeck, N.Y., the son of folk singers Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III. He grew up in Montreal, Canada, with his mother after she divorced when he was 3.

The German-born Weisbrodt is the artistic director of the Luminato Festival in Toronto, Canada.

The couple got engaged in November 2010. They have an 18-month-old daughter, Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen, whose mother is Lorca Cohen, daughter of famed singer Leonard Cohen.
