The NBC News’s Correspondent Kristen Welker ties a knot with her Fiancé John Hughes on 4th March 2017 at the Hyatt hotel in The Bellevue, Philadelphia. The news reporter got married to her man inside the Ross Ballroom of Hyatt in the presence of NBC Chuck Todd, Kelly O’Donnell and Andrea Mitchell followed by CNBC host Aditi Roy, FNC’s Ed Henry and Comcast executive David Cohen. While the ceremony was conducted by the Dare to Imagine Church, priest Kevin Johnson.

Fox News Host Ed Henry was the first to reveal the wedding pics through his Twitter.

The image quenched the thirst of the fan followers, who craved to get the inside view of the wedding. Soon after Ed shared the photo, fans started flooding the couple with “Best Wishes” and “Congratulations” through their respective Twitter accounts.

While Ed revealed the wedding pic, rev. Kevin Johnson was the one to share the inside images of the beautiful ceremony with the public.

Kristen and John got engaged on 24th June 2016 after John proposed her near Lincoln Memorial at Washington D.C on their way to the restaurant for dinner.

Kristen revealed she first met with the marketing Director of Merck in July 2016 through her best friend’s mother, where she stated:

"I'm 40 years old. I say that to give hope to other women who maybe haven't found The One in their 20s. So two summers ago, my best friend from high school's mother said, "I'd like you to meet John Hughes. He is their family friend's son. I had just about given up on the idea of finding someone, but we had dinner in Philadelphia, and the rest is history."
