Marc Jacobs is a married man!

The 55-year-old famous fashion designer wed his longtime partner, model-turned-candlemaker Char Defrancesco, in New York on Saturday.

The fashion designer shared some photos leading up to the big evening on Saturday. In one picture, Jacobs had a row of colorful ties laying out in front of different colored boots. "Choices. A gurl always needs options," he wrote.

Jacobs later shared a photo of his wedding ring and an onyx diamond penguin pin designed by Fabio Zambernardi that he and Defrancesco both wore. It held a very symbolic meaning, too. "Penguins have only one partner and mate for life. A great example of faithfulness and fidelity," he wrote.

The newlyweds arrived at their wedding reception at The Grill in Manhattan in, unsurprisingly, grand style. Defrancesco donned a gorgeous green velvet coat and matching bow tie. Jacobs had on a similar-hued suit with a white tie and calla lily flower pinned to his lapel.

Fellow attendees included Rita Ora, Kaia Gerber and other A-list celebrities. Guests even got their own customized vape pens as party favors.

The two have been together for more than three years. They got engaged last April. Jacobs proposed to a Chipotle restaurant! The proposal included a flash mob performing a choreographed dance to Prince's "Kiss."

"Every year for my birthday we go to Chipotle," Defrancesco told WWD.

"I wanted to take him out for a romantic dinner on his birthday and he was like, 'No, I want to go to Chipotle,'" Jacobs said. "So I knew I had to [propose] somewhere where he wouldn't suspect that I was going to do that. And then I organized a flash mob to be there, but he didn't know anything about that. So I was successful about that."

The newlyweds recently moved from New York City to the suburbs. They purchased a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Rye, in Westchester County, New York, after previously living together in a town house in Manhattan.

"I'm 55 years old, I'm getting married," Jacobs told WWD. "This feels like really a new chapter. I'd like to live a life outside. I just sit home and watch TV in the five-floor town house, you know? It's like, I'd like to be doing that with a beautiful view with dogs running around in the yard."

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
