Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski wed in a secret ceremony over the weekend attended by their closest friends and family.
Choosing to exchange vows in the rotunda of the National Archives in Washington D.C., the couple decided the holiday weekend would be the perfect time to pull off the secretive nuptials with the city all but deserted, according to Huffington Post. It also marks the first time the National Archives, which houses the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, has been used for a wedding.
“We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” Mika told Vanity Fair. “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.”
According to the Huffington Post, the couple chose not to send out invitations and simply called those they wanted to share in their special day. Guests reportedly included four of the couple’s closest friends, Mika’s mother, the couple’s six children from previous relationships and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D.Md.) who officiated the ceremony.
