With Oprah Winfrey among the celebrity guests, home decorating guru and TV host Nate Berkus married his fiance of one year, Jeremiah Brent, over the weekend.

And the couple made a little bit of history while doing so by becoming the first same-sex couple to be married at the New York Public Library.

Winfrey, the woman who launched Berkus’ television career, later sent out this tweet: Just left @NateBerkus wedding to his partner Jeremiah.I felt the shift. #anewdayhascome

Other celebrity guests included talk and cooking show host Rachael Ray and actress Busy Phillips of Cougar Town fame, according to People.com.

Berkus, 42, gained fame as a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show. He then went on to host his own syndicated daytime talk show for two years and is now host of NBC’s American Dream Builders.

Brent, 29, currently appears on the Bravo television series The Rachel Zoe Project.
