Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough are now officially a co-host husband and wife duo.

The MSNBC morning show hosts exchanged vows over Thanksgiving weekend in a private, intimate ceremony held in a rather sentimental (and historical) location. The couple chose the National Archives in Washington, D.C., where they were surrounded by the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Willie Geist, who was unable to make the ceremony due to his schedule, still addressed the wedding of his friends on the Today show. “Joe and Mika are off today and this week. Why, you ask? They had a very busy weekend,” Geist expressed Monday. “Joe and Mika were surrounded by all of their children, which made it very special for them.”

The bride wore a white dress designed by her close friend Michelle Smith of Milly. The piece itself is a sheer, polka dot, lace tea-length dress, as revealed first by Vanity Fair.

“We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” she told the mag on Saturday. “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.”

Scarborough is dad to for kids and Brzezinski is mom to two.

The couple got engaged in spring 2017. Scarborough proposed during a romantic birthday getaway in the Antibes. “When I saw him on one knee, I started laughing nervously, almost hysterically,” Brzezinski recalled. “And then he asked, and I said, ‘Absolutely.'”
