Congratulations to Michael Kors and Lance LePere. The American sportswear designer announced that he and his longtime beau will be getting married after the two were seen picking up a marriage license in New York on Wednesday, a little more than a month after the state legalized same-sex marriage. The couple met back in 1990, when LePere began interning for Kors.

What to expect of the nuptials? Well, if you’re hoping for a media-centered public production, keep on wishing. Kors and LePere are known to keep mum about their personal life, and that’s not about to change for their big day.  In fact, the only details disclosed by the designer indicate that it’ll be private.

Even though you may not get an inside look at the event, we’re betting it’ll be a classy affair. Kors is known for his understated, refined taste, and we’d expect no less of his wedding ceremony. All speculation aside, though, we wish the couple happiness and all the best on their wedding day and in the future.

Sarah Casselman, senior editor: “I love fashion weddings! My bet’s on a small, intimate affair held on a private island somewhere. The grooms will both wear white and will be sporting his ‘n’ his tans.”
