Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are officially married! The couple tied the knot a year-and-a-half after they became engaged in May 2017. Like the rest of their relationship, their wedding was a secret, attended by just a few close family members and friends. As reported by Vanity Fair, the ceremony took place on Saturday at the historic National Archives in Washington, D.C., where the Morning Joe co-hosts wed in front of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights.

 

According to the outlet, the couple has yet to disclose details about the ceremony. "We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe," Brzezinski said. "Everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it's over. We wanted to recognize it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us. And you know, our show is a cocktail party every morning."

As for what the bride's wedding dress? Brzezinski chose a white, tea-length Milly garment with a sweetheart neckline and polka-dotted sleeves. The dress was particularly special to Brzezinski, since it was created by her close friend, Michelle Smith.

 

After the ceremony, which was officiated by Representative Elijah Cummings, the small reception took place at Chez Billy Sud. There, the groom handled the evening's entertainment, which featured a playlist that Scarborough had put together ahead of the event. Though the couple didn't hint at their honeymoon plans, they did reveal one of their post-wedding to-dos. When asked if she would be changing her name, Brzezinski simply replied, "Yup."
