It doesn't get any more classic: a late summer engagement followed by a June wedding in the Hamptons.

TV journalist and talk show host Katie Couric was married to financier John Molner in small and intimate ceremony at her house in East Hampton on Saturday according to People Magazine.

The couple exchanged vows in front of 50 people including Couric’s 18-year-old daughter and Molner’s son and daughter.

The couple has been in two-year relationship. The 51-year-old Molner proposed to Couric over Labor Day last year on the beach in East Hampton.

Couric and Molner have both been married before. Couric’s husband, Jay Monanhan, died of colon cancer in 1998. Molner’s marriage ended in divorce.

Couric went on to become a spokesperson for colon cancer awareness and even underwent a colonoscopy on air to allay the fear surrounding the procedure. It resulted in a record increase in the number of Americans undergoing the diagnostic procedure.

Couric wanted her second wedding to be private and avoid the media attention usually devoted to celebrity nuptials. According to USA Today she wore a Carmen Marc Valvo dress.

Couric’s Twitter feed was notably quiet in the days leading up to her wedding, but she did take the time to break the news of her wedding on Twitter following the event.

John Molner is head of mergers and acquisitions for the investment company Brown Brothers Harriman and Company. Couric has worked at all three television networks. She was at NBC’s The Today Show as a co-host from 1989 to 2006, and she anchored CBS News from 2006 until 2011. For the past two seasons she has hosted, Katie, her own daytime talk show on ABC News. She taped her final episode of Katie on June 12.
