Robin Roberts came through on her January announcement that she planned to marry longtime partner Amber Laign. The couple got hitched in Connecticut over the weekend.
Among those in attendance were Roberts’ Good Morning America costars George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion, Lara Spencer, Michael Strahan, David Muir, Gio Benetiz, Dr. Jen Ashton and Tory Johnson. Tennis icon Billie Jean King and journalist Gayle King were also there to celebrate the brides.
Even super-cute pupper Lukas was there to greet guests!
Music was a big part of the event. The couple’s first dance was violinist Caroline Campbell’s beautiful rendition of Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” Roberts’ sister Dorothy Roberts sang “Blessed Assurance.” Via People:
During the processional, “Stand by Me” was performed by Campbell as Roberts was escorted by her brother, Lawrence E. Roberts, Jr., and Laign was also escorted down the aisle by her own brother.
The couple exchanged traditional vows and the ceremony concluded with uplifted version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” followed by tea sandwiches, lemonade and iced tea at the newlyweds’ home for their immediate family members.
