A month after conducting an impromptu ceremony, Joan Rivers officiated the wedding of a gay couple in New York.

On Aug. 15, the 81-year-old comedian, author and icon married William "Jed" Ryan and Joseph Aiello at New York's Plaza Athenee, Out magazine is reporting.

As it turns out, it was the second time down the aisle for the couple. In June, Rivers agreed to marry Ryan and Aiello on the spot at a Barnes & Noble signing of her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva, in Manhattan. Although photos and footage of that ceremony were picked up by numerous media outlets, the couple didn't have a proper marriage license at the time, so Rivers vowed to arrange a second ceremony so the men could legally tie the knot, according to Out.

Rivers, who is reportedly ordained by the Universal Life Church, is quickly becoming an in-demand wedding officiant. In 2013, the self-proclaimed "queen of the gays" officiated at a "King Kong"-themed ceremony for Preston Bailey and Theo Bleckmann atop the Empire State Building.

"Every wedding I officiate has a cover charge and a two-drink minimum," she joked at the time.
