Badgley Mischka’s designers know a little something about weddings — they’ve been making beautiful bridal gowns for years.

And now the couple behind the line, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, have tied the knot themselves in a small ceremony at N.Y.C.’s City Hall, the designers’ rep tells PEOPLE.

Badgley and Mischka have been together for 28 years, since they met at the Parsons School of Design in N.Y.C. They launched their iconic brand in 1988 (followed by bridal in 1993) and have been dressing Hollywood’s biggest names ever since.

But despite their huge fan following, the Friday wedding was an intimate affair, witnessed only by Mark’s twin sister O’Hara Fottrell. Both men wore silver ties (Mark’s was a bow tie) with blazers and dark denim. They celebrated afterwards with close friends and family at a local restaurant, while mid-’80s music played to celebrate their first years together.

See the couple’s newest accessories — their wedding rings! — below, then leave your congratulations in the comments!

So will they change their line to Badgley Badgley or perhaps Mischka Mischka? Who takes whose name?

Why should they match? Just because they are both men? My husband & my rings don’t match – we each picked something we love & will wear the rest of our lives! Congrats to the couple!!

This couple has love and that is important ..Why deny them rights to be united .. forget the stereotypes and seek the true feeling.
