On Saturday, NBC News correspondent Romo, 37, married Fox Weather meteorologist Morgan, 33, in an intimate ceremony at The Filter Building on White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas.
“Standing in front of the people I love most in the world, it was very important for me to grasp what it means to me to find Stephen,” says Romo. “It’s something I never really thought was possible.”
Morgan adds, “He doesn’t want to live without me. And I can’t imagine living without him.”

Romo and Morgan came out as gay in 2021 in two Instagram posts in which they also announced their engagement.
When it comes to planning your big day, executed by Nicole Morrill, “there is no clear guide to gay weddings,” says Morgan. “Growing up in a church that condemned homosexuality, I never even expected to get married. But we made it up on the fly, with a little help from our friends!”
Says Romo, “While some relatives on both sides don’t accept us, many others have stepped up to show us what to do in the world. I’ve been embracing gratitude for the kindness I didn’t even know I needed.” .”
The bride and groom wore tuxedos from Jacomino Bespoke Clothiers as they exchanged vows in front of 125 guests. After the ceremony, attendees enjoyed appetizers of beef empanadas and chicken chimichangas in honor of Romo’s Latino culture, before enjoying a dinner of chicken, glazed pork tenderloin and scalloped potatoes. That’s The Cake Bakery provided a sweet dessert.

“I’m looking forward to the honeymoon,” says Romo. “Hopefully during the winter we can rest from the cold and go somewhere warm.”
