Narciso Rodriguez fashioned a memorable weekend for himself: The designer married ad executive Thomas Tolan in New York Saturday night.

With celebrity clients Jessica Alba and Jessica Seinfeld in attendance, the Manhattan-based designer, 53, exchanged vows at the Gramercy Park Hotel.

While Rodriguez keeps a busy professional calendar, balancing his women’s wear collection along with new ventures such as his recent line for Kohl’s, he savors a more peaceful home life with Tolan.

“Tom makes Sunday gravy, meatballs and the whole deal. He’s a good cook, too. So we’ll cook together, open a bottle of red wine, and if it’s nice, we’ll sit on the terrace and watch the sunset,” Rodriguez told the New York Times in 2011.

No stranger to weddings, Rodriguez has designed gowns for Hollywood brides such as Julianna Margulies and Claire Danes.

But Rodriguez is best known for designing the iconic minimal bias-cut white silk sheath that close friend Carolyn Bessette wore for her top-secret wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996.

“You search your whole life to find that person who is your soul mate,” Rodriguez later said of Bessette Kennedy. “She’ll always be my muse.”
