Nate Berkus got married in historic fashion over the weekend.

The designer and author married Jeremiah Brent on Saturday at the New York Public Library, their rep told People magazine.

The "American Dream Builders" host, 42, and Brent, 29, were the first same-sex couple to wed at the New York City landmark.

As expected, the couple was decked out to the nines, with Berkus wearing a J.Crew suit and Brent wearing Saint Laurent with 220 guests looking on, including Oprah Winfrey, Rachael Ray, Katie Lee, Rebecca Minkoff, Irene Neuwirth and Busy Philipps.

Long wooden farm tables were covered in linens from Berkus's own fabric collection for the reception. DJ Mad Marj deejayed the after-party and singer Estelle gave a special performance of "American Boy," as well.
