The couple didn’t send official invites for their wedding. They called their family and a few friends to let them know about the intimate ceremony.

“We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” Brzezinski told Vanity Fair. “Everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it’s over. We wanted to recognise it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us.”

The MSNBC hosts have been private about their relationship over the years. Scarborough proposed in May 2017 during a trip to Antibes, France.
