Now that same-sex marriage has been legalized in New York, designer and Project Runway judge Michael Kors has confirmed that he will marry his longtime partner, Lance LePere, PEOPLE has confirmed.

"Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together," said Kors, 51. "We have no plans for a major party, but we will be getting married privately."

The couple picked up their marriage license at the City Clerk's Office in Manhattan.

They met in 1990, when LePere began working as an intern for Kors's company.
