Mayor Kevin Johnson married his fiancée of almost two years Michelle Rhee Saturday evening.

The couple was married at Blackberry Farm, just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee.

“We had a small ceremony with an intimate group of family and friends and are thrilled to be starting our lives together.” The Mayor says in his statement.

“We want to thank everyone who has sent us well-wishes, as we are so appreciative of the support.”

The Mayor’s best man was his younger brother, Ronnie West, and Rhee’s two daughters were also part of the wedding party.

Mayor Johnson and education reformer Michelle Rhee got engaged back in November of 2009.
