The Canadian musical dynasty that is the Wainwrightclan is about to get a bit bigger. Crooner Rufus Wainwright, 39, is set to marry his boyfriend of five years, 38-year-old German-born arts administrator Jorn Weisbrodt this Thursday.
The couple recently settled down in Toronto, as Weisbrodt is the new Artistic Director of the city's annual Luminato arts festival. However, the pair is having the ceremony and reception in Montauk, N.Y., beginning with the nuptials at the home of Wainwright's father, Loudon Wainwright III, followed by champagne and lobster rolls at a local restaurant. They'll then move to Montauk's Shagwong Restaurant to party into the early hours of the morning.
Though he's no singer by profession, Weisbrodt is officially joining a family with music in their blood. Wainwright and his sister Martha, both singer/songwriters, are the children of folk musicians Loudon and the late Kate McGarrigle (who performed with her sister Anna, two of Canada's most beloved musical icons).
Weisbrodt and Wainwright are currently helping raise Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen, the 18-month-old daughter that Wainwright had with Lorca Cohen, Leonard Cohen's daughter. Many of the 250 guests will also be performers, and will replace a DJ to provide the night's entertainment -- including a couple of songs from Rufus himself, known for his rendition of "Hallelujah" and his latest single "Out of the Game."
Guests are also rumored to include John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and "Star Wars" actress Carrie Fisher.

This non-traditional couple are going for some non-traditional quirks for their big day, including no dress code whatsoever, video invitations, and a group seaside swim after the ceremony. Oh, and instead of gifts, they've asked for donations to pay off their new 25-foot Airstream trailer, which can cost anywhere between $55,000 to well over $75,000.
The rest of the details will likely remain a mystery, since all guests were asked to refrain from posting any messages about the wedding on Twitter or Facebook.
