New York, NY - Sam Champion, the weather anchor for Good Morning America, married photographer Rubem Robierb in New York City on Friday.

The 10-minute ceremony, held in Champion's home, was officiated by New York State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver, ABC News reported.

Champion married surrounded by members of his GMA family, including Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott. Roberts read a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Robierb's mother and sister attended the ceremony via Skype from Brazil.

"The whole family is at the house right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything [done]," Champion said on GMA before tying the knot.

Previous to announcing his engagement in October, Champion had not previously publicly discussed his sexual orientation. He's the first co-host of a network morning television show to come out gay and the first to marry a member of the same sex.

The couple will celebrate their nuptials at a New Year's Eve party in Miami.
