Get out the champagne! Openly gay U.S. Ambassador Daniel Baer married his partner Brian Walsh over the weekend.

The U.S. Ambassador to the Organization for Security & Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) reportedly wed Walsh in Vienna, Austria, where the pair is currently living. Baer tweeted out the following picture of the service with a caption that read, "So, I got married this morning. Thank you @BarackObama, @HillaryClinton, & @JohnKerry for your commitment to equality."

Baer became the fourth openly gay person to land a state department emissary role when he was sworn into his position last September.

Congrats, Daniel and Brian!
