Former President George H.W. Bush is throwing his support behind gay marriage…sort of.

Bush, along with wife Barbara, served as an official witness at a same-sex marriage in Maine over the weekend.

The nuptials took place between Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, who own a general store in Kennebunkport, where the Bushes have long vacationed.The newlyweds and the Bushes are friends who go back many years.

The happy couple posted the photo on Thorgalsen’s Facebook page.

A rep for Bush downplayed the moment, saying, “They were private citizens attending a private ceremony for two friends.”

Clement explained in an email that they asked the Bushes “to really personalize it for us” as witnesses.
