CBS News correspondent Lee Cowan and NBC News producer Molly Palmer now officially are husband and wife.

After getting hitched last Saturday in Washington, DC, the new Mrs. Cowan emailed TVNewser from France, where the newlyweds are on their honeymoon.   Their wedding day, Molly says, was “amazing”.

The ceremony was held at St. Alban’s Parish, with a reception at the Chevy Chase Club in Maryland.

As The New York Times reports, those locations are steeped in tradition.  They were the same as those for Palmer’s parents’ wedding some three decades before.  Furthermore, Father of the Bride John Palmer, the former NBC White House correspondent and Today news anchor, met Mother of the Bride Nancy Doyle Palmer when both were working at NBC News - just as Molly and Lee met while they were colleagues at the network, at NBC’s Los Angeles bureau.

John Palmer told TVNewser last August that “we are not losing a daughter, just adding another journalist to the family, and a fine one he is!”
