MSNBC's Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski tied the knot on Saturday night at a top-secret wedding location — the National Archives in Washington, D.C., RadarOnline can confirm!

The controversial politically-minded pair, who met and fell in love while doing the TV show together, wed in the Archives library in front of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights!

Former House of Representatives politician Joe, 55, and Mika, 51, got engaged in spring 2017.

But as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported back then, sources said the Morning Joe couple had been romantically involved with one another long before they officially came out as a couple.

In the several months leading up to their engagement, Joe and Mika worked hard at hiding their relationship, "pretending" they weren't "together."

But, according to an insider close to the situation, the co-hosts couldn't contain themselves during their visit to the President's Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, during New Year's 2016 going into 2017.

An eyewitness, who was at Mar-a-Lago at the time, revealed to Radar exclusively, "Joe and Mika were all over each other!"

Although their romance is now well known, their wedding was handled with secrecy, according to VF.

The two decided to walk down the aisle after D.C. had emptied out for the holidays as Congress is out of session.

They made wedding reservations under a friend's name and didn't send out formal invitations, instead phoning up guests.

The nuptials worked out perfectly with Joe and Mika's children's school schedules over the Thanksgiving break.

Mika told VF after saying her "I dos," "We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe. Everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it's over. We wanted to recognize it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us. And you know, our show is a cocktail party every morning."

It was pouring down rain when the couple and their small group of friends and family members went to the National Archives; it was the first time a wedding has ever been held there.

Blonde beauty Mika glowed in a white, tea-length Milly dress, with polka-dotted lace sleeves and a sweetheart neckline, created by her friend, designer Michelle Smith.

Scarborough looked dapper and happy in a black Zegna suit he's worn on the show with a black wedding tie.

A string quartet played for the couple' walk down the aisle.

Mika's mother, Emilie, and her two of her closest friends, Laura Erlacher and Susan Castallanos, supported her at the altar.

Representative Elijah Cummings officiated at the wedding. And yes, Joe kissed the bride!

The Morning Joe hostess whose chemistry with Joe seeped into their off-camera lives, said afterwards about having the wedding at the Archives, "We did an event there more than a year ago and we were just blown away, seeing all these documents and how we felt seeing them."
