ABC News weather editor and "GMA" anchor Sam Champion and husband Rubem Robierb rang in 2013 with a New Year’s Eve wedding reception in Miami, surrounded by friends and family, including the grooms’ mothers.
Singer Nicole Henry and producer Richard Jay-Alexander, a friend of Champion’s, performed for 100 guests at the reception at the Icon South Beach.
The couple wed in December in an intimate ceremony at Champion’s New York City apartment, attended by Champion’s fellow “GMA” anchors and the couple’s friends and family.
N.Y. State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver conducted the ceremony, which lasted about 10 minutes. Robin Roberts also played a part in the nuptials, reading a beautiful poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Champion and Robierb met through mutual friends a few years ago in Miami, where Robierb lives. Born in Brazil, Robierb is an artist who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, Santa Monica and New York. The two announced their engagement in October.
