Morning Joe co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were married this weekend in Washington, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) confirmed on social media.
Cummings officiated the Saturday nuptials and later took to Twitter to offer the newlyweds well-wishes.
“Congratulations to Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough! It was a pleasure to officiate your beautiful wedding. I wish you years of love and happiness together!” Cummings tweeted Sunday.

Brzezinksi later replied, “We are so honored.”
Vanity Fair, which first reported details of the wedding, said Brzezinski, 51, and 55 year-old Scarborough exchanged vows in an “intimate” ceremony at the National Archives “just steps away from the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
The ceremony was followed by a dinner party in Georgetown, the publication said.
Brzezinski played coy about the ceremony. But in a cryptic Instagram post Saturday, she shared a picture of herself puckering up to a frog along with the caption: “I kissed the frog.”

The two MSNBC newscasters announced their engagement in May of last year.
It is the second marriage for Brzezinski and the third for Scarborough, a former Florida Republican Congressman.
