The city's mayor Mark Epley reportedly officiated the private ceremony on Dune Beach.

"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, tells WWD.

Earlier this month, the two were spotted getting their marriage license at the City Clerk's Office 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," Kors said at the time in statement obtained by People.
