"We wanted it to be really small and simple, and not what I expected from Mika and Joe," Brzezinski, 51, told the publication. "Everything we do is exposed, and everything feels exposed every step of the way, so we want it to be private until it's over." We wanted to recognize it more silently and have the people who are most important to us around us. And you know, our show is a cocktail every morning. "
The couple was interested in keeping the details of the ceremony a secret. According to Vanity FairScarborough, 55, and Brzezinski "did not send any formal invitations; They made about 14 phone calls to their relatives and close friends, and none of the guests knew where the dinner was until Saturday night.
