Congratulations are in order for Cassidy Gifford and Ben Wierda, as the two officially tied the knot this month. While Us Weekly confirmed the couple's newlywed status, the duo has yet to share all the details. But the bride's mother, Kathie Lee Gifford, shared her own excitement about her daughter's nuptials on Instagram: "When the mother of the bride can't contain her joy!!!" she captioned a photo while riding a tractor in Nashville, Tennessee.

The former Today Show host and proud mom took to social media to confirm the couple's engagement, too, months ago, People reported: "So thrilled to announce that my beautiful daughter, @cassidygiff is engaged to a wonderful man, Ben @letsgetwierda," she wrote in an Instagram post. "I am beyond the moon and stars. Thank you, LORD!"

Cassidy and Ben marked their engagement back in November—the moment itself was absolutely hilarious. According to People, the future bride was mid-way through a meal when Ben dropped down on one knee. "Fiancé proposes while I'm face deep in a quesadilla just so he can tell that story forever and future sister in law @missamerikabrown sends me a tortilla blanket so that I won't forget it," Cassidy captioned a photo of herself lying with the blanket.

The otherwise private couple began the countdown to married bliss after their engagement with a series of posts on social media. During one Instagram post, Cassidy shared that she always knew her fiancé was "the one." She captioned a photo of the two of them with a sweet sentiment dedicated to her soon-to-be groom: "It was always you."
