Robin Roberts is officially a married woman!

After being with partner Amber Laign for 18 years, the Good Morning America anchor tied the knot on Friday, Sept. 8.

The couple said "I do" in the backyard of their home, with friends and family gathered around and Roberts' childhood pastor officiating. Roberts and Laign wore custom wedding gowns designed by Mark Badgley and James Mischka. After the nuptials, they celebrated with a garden-themed reception.

The couple's adorable Tibetan Spaniel Papillion mix rescue served as a groomsman, wearing a tuxedo bandana. In an Instagram Story, Roberts asked the pup, "Hey Lukas, are you ready for the big day?"

Roberts shared more photos from the big day on social media, revealing her and Laign's beautiful dresses as they walked hand in hand through a lush atmosphere.

She captioned the celebratory update, "An intimate, magical wedding ceremony in our backyard followed by a joyous reception…ohhhh the dancing!! We are immensely grateful to all for making it a day and a night to remember. Honeymoon here we come!"

Roberts credited Chris J. Evans as the wedding photographer.

On the day before the nuptials, Roberts shared a video on Instagram featuring herself and Laign walking with linked arms at the Farmington Town Court, getting their marriage license. In the clip, it's revealed that Laign is taking Roberts' name as she tells the camera, "I have to get used to signing Roberts."

The 62-year-old wrote, "Road to the Ring is nearing an end…18 years and totally worth the wait! #ThankfulThursday #HappyWeddingEve😉…this is take 2 that includes the 3 Rings of Marriage."

Leading up to the big day, Roberts gave a preview of the prep for the ceremony on Good Morning America. Fans got a sneak peek at the custom designs for each bride's gown, as well as the decor for the reception.

The couple opted for a green thumb-friendly atmosphere, complete with a moss wall featuring their monogrammed initials, cascading floral arrangements, and roundtables with a tree as a centerpiece.

As she celebrates the milestone in her relationship, Roberts has been taking a break from the morning talk show to enjoy spending time with her bride. She's set to return at some point later this month.
