We knew Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's wedding was going to be ridiculously stylish, but we had no idea it would be one for the history books, too.

The duo tied the knot at the New York Public Library on Saturday, becoming the first same-sex couple to get married at the landmark according to People.

Berkus and Brent said "I do" in front of 220 guests, which included Oprah Winfrey, Rachael Ray, Katie Lee, Rebecca Minkoff, Irene Neuwirth, and Busy Philipps. Sheri Salata, president of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network & Harpo Studios, officiated the service.

Berkus wore a J.Crew suit and Brent sported a Saint Laurent ensemble. To complement their dapper looks, they exchanged identical Van Cleef & Arpels gold wedding bands.

Naturally, Berkus, an interior design guru who currently hosts American Dream Builders and Brent, a fellow designer, created a perfectly-executed wedding reception. They employed a color palette of black, white, cream and gold, and mixed in natural elements like geodes and minerals, along with lush greenery (Kate Middleton would approve!). Guests dined at long wooden farm tables covered in linens from Berkus's fabric line and Target collection.

The couple got engaged in May after Berkus proposed in front of their friends atop Peru's Machu Picchu. As if that's not one of the most spectacular proposal spots ever, the statement he released to announce the news was even more romantic.

"I've known since our first date that Jeremiah was who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with," Berkus said. "As we've shared the news of our engagement and been met with so much excitement and support we're both reminded of how important it is that every person have the legal right to marry the one they love."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
