Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sparked speculation on Sunday when she mentioned the Constitution while officiating a same-sex wedding.

According to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who attended the wedding in the Embassy Row neighborhood of Washington, D.C., Ginsburg's comments might have been a hint of how the High Court will rule on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage this summer.

"With a sly look and special emphasis on the word 'Constitution,' Justice Ginsburg said that she was pronouncing the two men married by the powers vested in her by the Constitution of the United States," Dowd wrote.

"No one was sure if she was emphasizing her own beliefs or giving a hint to the outcome of the case the Supreme Court is considering whether to decide if same-sex marriage is constitutional," she added.

Nevertheless, guests applauded loudly, Dowd said, and Ginsburg "seemed delighted."

The Supreme Court heard arguments on same-sex marriage in April and their ruling is expected in June.
