Rodriguez and Tolan have been together for several years.  The couple wed this past weekend at the Gramercy Park Hotel with several of Rodriguez’ high profile clients in attendance including Brazilian actress Sonia Braga.

The 53- year-old designer arrived on the fashion scene with the iconic while silk wedding dress he designed for Carolyn Bessette for her wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996.  Since then he has been sought out by fashion icons like Jessica Alba and Sarah Jessica Parker.
