Katie Couric - Katie Couric weds

Katie Couric has got married.

The talk show host tied the knot with John Molner in an intimate ceremony at their home in East Hampton, New York on Saturday (21.06.14) that was attended just by family - including her daughters Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 17, and his children Allie and Henry - and close friends.

Shortly after the ceremony, Katie tweeted: ''So excited to make my debut as Mrs. John Molner!''

The 57-year-old presenter wore a Carmen Marc Valvo ivory crystal beaded and embroidered Chantilly lace gown with a halter neck, and John's nieces and nephews were ring bearers and flower girls.

The couple's garden had been decked out especially for the celebration, with centrepieces including garden roses, dahlias, hydrangeas and peonies, while guests were entertained by music from Hank Lane and tucked into a delicious strawberry lemon cake after their meal.

Katie previously revealed she was allowing financier John, 51, arrange their wedding.

She said: ''He's the wedding planner!''

The couple got engaged last September after two years of dating and the former 'Today' host previously admitted she was confused when John popped the question.

She said: ''He said that there was a reason he'd brought me there to the beach, and that he loved me and was committed to me, and I said, 'Yeah, I know that, you didn't have to bring me here to tell me that.'

''Finally he said, 'Couric, I'm trying to propose to you,' and I was stunned.''

Explaining how she responded, she laughed: ''It took me a while to say yes, because I was so confused! It took a long time for my brain to process what was going on.''

Katie was previously married to Jay Monahan - the father of her daughters - but she was widowed when he tragically died from colon cancer in 1998 at the age of 42.
