Megyn Kelly beamed as she attended the intimate wedding of Fox contributor Guy Benson and Adam Wise on Saturday, proud of bringing the pair together by accident.
The former Fox anchor contained Benson in her old Fox show The Kelly File in 2015, where the 34-year-old appeared as gay on live television.
Benson called the TV confession the & # 39; most frightening TV appearance of my life & # 39 ;. But it was his courageous statement in the air that led Wise to reach him.
It wasn't long before Benson and Wise, a 24-year-old consultant for the federal government, fell in love and became engaged in 2018.
The two tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley, California on Saturday for 150 close guests, including Kelly.

I do! The two tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley, California on Saturday for 150 close guests, including their unintended matchmaker Kelly
Kelly, who has been lying low since being evicted from NBC in October last year, was seen hugging guests at the California wedding with her husband by her side
& # 39; We do not always socialize with Megyn; we will occasionally exchange notes, but just given what she did for me, with me, for me four years ago, there was no way that I would not invite her to this high point of that journey that in some ways began to show her, & Benson said People Magazine when inviting the 48-year-old journalist.
Benson, host of The Guy Benson Show of Fox News Radio, appeared on the Kelly show in 2015 to promote his new book End of Discussion. In addition to promoting his book, he came out as gay.
& # 39; In a book I came across as a gay in a footnote because there was an entire chapter about gay rights and religious freedoms, and I thought it important that I make the ethical, yes, from a journalistic perspective known to the public, & # 39; said Benson.
Wise looked at the segment with his parents in Colorado and decided to send an e-mail to Benson saying he inspired him.
& # 39; I wanted help in reconciling a conservative and gay. I had come out, I had been outside for a while, & Wise said.
The couple then met in person and began dating after they had a relationship about watching Netflix & Making 39 Murderer together.
& # 39; There was a reason that I approached Megyn in the first place to do this very sensitive interview at that vulnerable moment in my life, because I trusted her and I knew she would be a total class act and a total professional and of course they are delivered. And just, you never really forget someone doing something like that for you, ever & # 39 ;, said Benson about his special relationship with Kelly.
Kelly, who has been low since being deported from NBC in October last year, issued a rare public statement in June to wish the couple the best for their marriage.
& # 39; Guy was challenged to publicly come out with grace and dignity, and I was honored to be a small part of it, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I am very happy with his upcoming wedding and wish him and Adam incredible luck, & # 39; she added.

At the start of their relationship, Benson said that their relationship led immediately.
& # 39; It soon became clear that it just clicked, & # 39; said Benson.
& # 39; We are both organized and driven people. We just work well together. We're best friends. He is my home, & Wise said.
Some of the main guests invited to the lavish wedding were Fox Business Network employee Lisa Kennedy and conservative TV-speaking headlines Katie Pavlich and Hugh Hewitt.
Benson and Wise said & # 39; I did & # 39; in matching gray J. Crew suits and ties that paid tribute to their respective alma affairs. Benson wore lavender for the Northwest and Wise wore sage green for the state of Colorado.
Benson first discussed his sexuality during a sit-down interview on The Kelly File in 2015 (above). Wise looked at the segment with his parents in Colorado and decided to send an email to Benson saying that he inspired him and that the couple fell in love soon afterwards

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a three-course meal with a tomato, feta and bacon salad, bavette steak with mashed potatoes, and a sweet and savory cheese course.
Instead of a wedding cake for dessert, guests chose a dessert station with four or five different sweets.
The dance floor at the reception included dueling pianos and for the first dance, Bensen and Wise waltzed with their mothers.
& # 39; It's great to have someone you've found in your life who compliments you very well. And our hope is that for many, many years we will find our lives easier with two, & # 39; said the couple on their special day.
Kelly left the Fox network in 2017 to join the NBC on the Today Show abruptly left in 2018, and left a $ 30 million settlement with the peacock network.
