Fashion designer Marc Jacobs and model Char DeFrancesco got married in New York on Saturday

The glamorous couple has been dating for 3 years and got engaged with a flash mob at a Chipotle fast food restaurant last year.

Marc and Char held their wedding reception at a New York City restaurant and among the guests were celebrities and fashion superstars like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Even though the event was kept private from most traditional media, it was well documented on social media by both the couple and their guests.

Marc posted an image of an onyx diamond penguin pin, which both he and Char wore.

“Penguins have only one partner and mate for life,” Jacobs wrote in the caption. “A great example of faithfulness and fidelity.”

He also posted an image of some awesome lion head cufflinks by New York-based jeweller David Webb.
