Katie Couric Marries John Molner in Her Backyard Garden - Photos

Posted in: , ,

Katie Couric married her fiance now husband John Molner in her backyard in New York this Saturday. Katie and John got engaged in September 2013 after nearly two years of dating.

The new bride tweeted the picture above with the caption, "So excited to make my debut as Mrs. John Molner!" For her dress, Katie opted for an ivory halter gown by Carmen Marc Valvo,

Last week, the journalist had revealed the wedding would be holding in her Hamptons home, sharing a picture of the flower garden below on Instagram with the caption, "The garden is ready for the big day one week from today! (Gulp!)".

Katie has been married before and has two daughters, Ellie and Carrie, and husband John also has two children, Allie and Henry, from a previous marriage. Katie is 57 and John is 51.

Katie's first husband, Jay Monahan died from colon cancer in 1998, after barely 10 years of marriage. Ellie, 22 and Carrie, 17 were little girls then, and Katie brought them up as a single mother since.

Katie opened up about being a single mom in an interview with More, sharing her desire to spend life with a partner.

"It's actually surprising to me that it has been almost 15 years, and I haven't remarried. I think life is more fun when you have someone in your life. And I always wanted to find a father figure for my daughters, but it hasn't worked out that way." 

Well, she got her heart's wish. Congratulations, Katie and John!
