Retired astronaut Buzz Aldrin and his partner Anca Faur were thrilled to exchange their vows in a small, private ceremony in Los Angeles.

On Friday which also happened to be Aldrin's 93rd birthday, the two became husband and wife.

In 1969, Aldrin joined Neil Armstrong on the groundbreaking Apollo 11 mission, the first to bring human beings to the moon.

Together, they made history as part of NASA's most famous mission.

Aldrin retired from NASA in 1971 and since then has been a passionate supporter of sending humans to Mars.

He continues to advocate for this mission and its potential impact on humanity.

His companion Faur is the Executive Vice President of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC.

Aldrin stated on Twitter that the two have been inseparable for more than four years, journeying around the world and investing quality time with Faur's grandchildren.
