Wedding bells have finally rung for Michael Kors and his longtime partner.

The designer and Lance LePere tied the knot on Tuesday in Southampton, N.Y., in a private ceremony on Dune Beach officiated by Southampton Mayor Mark Epley.

"To marry someone as wonderful and special to me as Lance barefoot on a glorious beach is more than I could have dreamed of," Kors, 51, said in a statement.

Women's Wear Daily first reported the nuptials.

Earlier this month, the Project Runway judge confirmed that he planned to marry LePere following the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York.

"Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together," he told PEOPLE.  

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