Designer and American Dream Builders host and author Nate Berkus, 42, married his partner, designer and TV personality Jeremiah Brent, 29, Saturday at the New York Public Library, their reps confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

The pair, who got engaged a year ago in Peru, are the first same-sex couple to hold their wedding at the iconic New York landmark.

The ceremony was officiated by Sheri Salata, President, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network & Harpo Studios. Berkus wore a J.Crew suit and Brent wore Saint Laurent; the two exchanged identical gold bands from Van Cleef & Arpels.

Parents from both sides and siblings were among the 220 guests, which included longtime friend Oprah Winfrey, Rachael Ray, Katie Lee, Rebecca Minkoff, Irene Neuwirth, Busy Philipps and Elizabeth Hendrickson from The Young and the Restless.

Wedding planner and friend Marcy Blum Associates collaborated with the men to design the evening's festivities. The invites were done by Elum Designs for Sugar Press. The décor combined their color palette of black, whites and creams and included gold touches, and natural elements like geodes and minerals, mixed in with lush greenery.

The ceremony wall was custom built and linens from Berkus's own fabric line blended with hisTarget collection.

Following the ceremony, there was a rousing performance by the Gospel for Teens/ The Mama Foundation for the Arts, a favorite choir of Berkus's.

For the reception, the men turned to Nathan Heinrich Design for florals and Blum to capture their vision. Accomplishing an intimate feel, they mixed long wooden farm tables covered in linens from Berkus's own fabric collection, available at Calico reports People.

Menus were designed by Swiss Cottage Designs and became a keepsake for guests, who dined on white gem cut dinnerware set from Berkus's new Target tabletop collection, launching this month. Great Performances created and served a menu specifically designed for the couple's tastes.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
