Ian McKellen married Patrick Stewart over the weekend, and either way you take that sentence, it's pretty damn awesome.

Sadly, Magneto did not legally marry Charles Xavier. Instead, Ian McKellen officiated his friend Patrick Stewart's wedding to girlfriend Sunny Ozell, and when Gandalf marries you, you know you're doing something right.

Stewart tied the knot for the third time yesterday (September 8), confirming the news via Twitter with a rather short and sweet message about the festivities complete with adorable ballpit photo. As is customary.

Stewart's friend and perpetual 'X-Men' co-star Ian McKellen shared on Facebook that he "did his part" for the nuptials, complete with a photo of himself holding his Doctor of Divinity certificate and a shirt bearing the title "minister."

We hope he takes requests!

According  to a source for Us Weekly, the couple have already moved onto their honeymoon. 73-year-old Stewart and singer Ozell, 35 met at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2008 and have been together ever since.

Congratulations all around! And may they live long and prosper.
