Fox News radio host and contributor Guy Benson married partner Adam Wise Saturday in a wedding ceremony at a winery in Napa Valley, California.

The ceremony was attended by former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. Controversial correspondent Kelly can take some of the credit for bringing the two men together.

Benson, 34, came out publicly during an episode of The Kelly File in 2015. Watching the show was Wise, 24, who contacted Benson. He was inspired by Benson’s story of being a gay conservative. The two got together and, according to People magazine, “bonded over a Netflix binge session of Making A Murderer.”

The men got engaged in 2018.

Besides contributing to Fox shows, Benson hosts the Guy Benson Show on Fox News Radio. Wise is a consultant for the Federal Government.

The men married at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley in front of 150 guests. On his Instagram, Benson describes himself as a, “Conservative, sports fan, foodie, wine enthusiast, traveler, lover of life.”

Benson told People, “What’s especially wonderful about this celebration is that in an age of so much division and partisan anger, our friends and family from across the ideological spectrum have joined us to celebrate our love,” Benson said.

“People talk a lot about inclusion, open-mindedness and tolerance; our wedding guests are living those values.”

Megyn Kelly was fired from NBC show Today in late 2018 after making comments about the appropriateness of blackface as part of Halloween costumes. She has yet to return to a major broadcasting role.

Of inviting Kelly, Benson said, “We don’t socialize all the time with Megyn; we’ll occasionally exchange notes, but just given what she did with us, with me, for me four years ago, there was no way that I was not going to invite her to this culmination of that journey that in some ways began on her show.”

He has shared images of the weekend to his Twitter and Instagram, praising guests for the emotional speeches they gave.

“Over the course of two unforgettable evenings, we had the privilege of listening to *ten* toasts from our friends and family members. Usually, with such things, there’s a weak link along the way: Someone inevitably rambles on a little too long, strays into awkward territory, or has been slightly over-served. But not this weekend.

“Each and every speech was perfect — poignant, hilarious, moving. Not sure I’ve laughed so hard, or shed so many tears, in recent memory. We love you all so much.”
