Sam Champion is a winner at the game of love.

The Good Morning America weatherman tied the knot with artist partner Rubem Robierb at Champion's New York City apartment this afternoon, ABC News confirms.

Robin Roberts, who's still recovering from a bone marrow transplant, read an Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem as part of the intimate ceremony, which was officiated by New York State Supreme Court Justice George Silver. Robierb's mother and sisters watched the nuptials from Brazil via Skype.

The couple announced their engagement in October and talked about tying the knot on New Year's Eve in Miami, where Robierb is based—and that's still when and where they plan to have a big bash to celebrate their newlywed status.

After starting off the day with a series of weather-related tweets, Champion started fielding congratulations from friends and fans.

"THANK YOU FOR ALL the LOVE," he tweeted before the ceremony.
