Minnesota's lieutenant governor Peggy Flanagan married former Minnesota Public Radio host Tom Weber over the weekend.

Flanagan made the announcement Sunday, tweeting pictures from their Saturday wedding.

"Tom and I were married Saturday afternoon, in front of our family and friends,” she wrote.

"We’re over the moon and can’t wait to walk this journey together."

She shared four photos from the wedding, which were taken by KARE 11 photographer Ben Garvin.

It was a short engagement for the couple, who revealed in June that they were engaged to be married, with the wedding hosted at a friend's cabin in Red Wing.

Weber was the host of MPR News with Tom Weber, but was reassigned in early 2018 to avoid a conflict of interests after confirming he was in a relationship with Flanagan, who at the time was the running mate of gubernatorial candidate Tim Walz.

He then left MPR in June 2018, with Flanagan five months later becoming the highest ranking Native American woman in the country as she and Walz were elected in Minnesota's gubernatorial elections.

Paying tribute to the pair was Gov. Tim Walz, who was among those in attendance.
