Lance Bass Marries Michael Turchin!
Lance Bass is married! The former *NSYNC singer tied the knot on Saturday to Michael Turchin, an artist and actor. The couple wed before approximately 300 friends and family members at the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, Gossip Cop has learned. Celebrity guests included other *NSYNC members Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, and Chris Kirkpatrick, as well as Lisa Vanderpump, and JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who both officiated the ceremony. Justin Timberlake missed the nuptials because he’s still on tour.
People reports that Bass chose Sigler and Swisher to officiate because of his closeness to the two actresses. Bass says, “You could easily go to a preacher, a pastor or a rabbi but I don’t like that because you don’t really know them. You have a stranger in charge of the most important day of your life.” He adds, “We loved the idea of using someone who knows us.”
We’re told the wedding party included the couple’s three dogs and the ceremony had hints of Bass’ Baptist roots and Turchin’s Jewish upbringing. The two also exchanged vows that each had written about the other. Their wedding was filmed and is slated to be on an E! special in February.
Bass and Turchin, who have been together for three years, got engaged in New Orleans in September 2013 shortly after the *NSYNC reunion at the VMAs. Mazel tov to the newlyweds!
