Love is in the forecast! Good Morning America anchor and ABC News weather editor Sam Champion wed partner Rubem Robierb on Friday afternoon at his New York City apartment.
On this morning's GMA, Sam said, "The whole family is at the house right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything [done]."
Co-anchors Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, and Josh Elliott were present to witness the intimate exchanging of vows. Rubem's family wasn't there in person, but joined the festive occasion via Skype from Brazil. NY State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver presided over the nuptials.
Recovering from her bone marrow transplant, Robin read a poem written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning to give her blessing to the couple.
The newlyweds, who announced their engagement in October, were introduced a few years back by a mutual friend. They'll celebrate having tied the knot at a reception on December 31 in Miami, the city in which they met and where Rubem resides.
