MSNBC's Alex Wagner married White House chef Sam Kass on Saturday.

The wedding took place at Blue Hill at Stone Barns outside of New York City, according to Reuters. Kass is a longtime friend of President Barack Obama's and has been cooking for the Obama family for years, dating back to when he would prepare meals for them in Chicago. The president, first lady Michelle Obama, and their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, were all in attendance.

Wagner, who hosts MSNBC's "Now with Alex Wagner," had been dating Kass under the radar for about a year before the Washington Post broke the news of their relationship last August.

The wedding had media figures rubbing elbows with politicians in a juxtaposition seldom seen outside of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Reuters reported cable news figures sitting together with White House staffers.
