PEOPLE’s own Jess Cagle is married!
On Saturday, PEOPLE’s Editor-in-Chief wed TV writer/producer Matt Whitney in front of about 120 guests at the Bridgehampton Club in Bridgehampton, New York.
Among the couples in attendance were Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Katie Couric and John Molner, Lara Spencer and Rick McVey as well as Ali Wentworth and George Stephanopoulos, who hosted the festivities with their daughters Elliott and Harper. Wentworth also made the cake and arranged the flowers.
Both grooms had lots of family on hand, including Whitney’s parents, Miriam and Mason Whitney, from Denver, Colorado, and Cagle’s mom, Cleta Cagle Bradley, from Lubbock, Texas.
The ceremony was officiated by Disney/ABC executive Kevin Brockman. Najimy, a close friend of Cagle, and Amanda Armstrong, a close friend of Whitney’s, spoke at the wedding.
“It feels so magnificent to walk into a tent full of loved ones who’ve shared your journey through life,” says Cagle. “The best part was the fried chicken. No wait, the best part was marrying Matt! And then the fried chicken. And my friend Ali’s homemade chocolate wedding cake. Anyway, it was perfect.”
Several attendees documented the festivities on social media.
“Congrats #JessandMatt #weddingweekend,” Vergara captioned a photo of the outdoor ceremony on Instagram.
Sharing a photo of Manganiello and Hammer, the actress pointed out that she and Chambers were two “lucky” ladies.
“Cafe con leche,” she quipped.
Chambers posted a group photo from the nuptials, captioning it: “We came for the love. And the light.”
“But mostly, we came for the love. And the [dessert] (in that order),” she continued in a follow-up post. “Love you, #MattandJess. Happy wedding weekend, you soulmates.”
