In front of 50 friends and family, they wed in East Hampton, N.Y.

"We wanted to keep the wedding just very low-key," Couric told People. "This is not my first rodeo so I didn't want to go too crazy and neither did John."

The ceremony, which Couric says had "traditional touches," featured readings by Molner's children, Allie and Henry, as well as Couric's two daughters.

Katie's children by late husband Jay Monahan, Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 18, sang for them, while Molner's nieces were flower girls at the duo's nuptials.

Katie, 57, wore an ivory Chantilly lace halter gown by Carmen Marc Valvo that she admits she finally decided on just one week before the wedding.

Bucking tradition, she says she asked her groom to help her make the final decision. "I hope this isn't bad luck but I actually tried it on for him," she admits.

"I tried on a number of dresses. I was so busy, I had a crazy spring."

She has embarked on her new role as a Yahoo! News Global Anchor, released a documentary, Fed Up, and celebrated daughter Carrie's high school graduation.

In fact, John Molner, 51, ended up doing a lot of the wedding planning.

"I call John 'Groomzilla!'" Couric said. "We're a very modern couple."
