Katie Couric and John Molner marry in small ceremony

After nearly two years of dating, Katie Couric and John Molner married in a small ceremony in East Hampton, New York, Saturday. 

The pair said their nuptials in front of 50 guests in Couric's backyard. Shortly after the wedding she posted this to Twitter. (Via Twitter)

Us Magazine describes the backyard wedding, writing, "The reception decor complimented Couric's garden perfectly with centerpieces that included garden roses, peonies, dahlias, and hydrangeas, among others. Hank Lane provided the music..." The magazine noted Couric "wore an ivory crystal beaded and embroidered Chantilly lace halter gown designed by Carmen Marc Valvo."

The journalist has had a busy past few months including wrapping up her talk show, starting as a global anchor for Yahoo! News, releasing a documentary about obesity and watching her youngest daughter, Carrie, graduate high school. 

People reports the bride left most of the wedding planning to Molner and waited to pick out a wedding dress until the week before the wedding. She told the mag, "We wanted to keep the wedding just very low-key. This is not my first rodeo so I didn't want to go too crazy..." 

This is the second marriage for both Couric and Molner. Couric's first husband passed away after a battle with colon cancer about 15 years ago. 

Couric told MORE Magazine last year that she always thought she would end up like Florence Henderson on the Brady Bunch.

And, at least partially, that has come true. Couric has two daughters from her late husband, and Molner has a son and a daughter from his previous marriage. No word yet on the couple's honeymoon plans.
