Gayle King’s son, William Bumpus Jr., and his fiancée, Elise Smith, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Oprah Winfrey’s home on Sunday.

“Oprah, of course, was there because it was at Oprah’s house,” King, 69, said on “CBS Mornings” on Tuesday of her best friend, joking that “it’s always nice” when the billionaire “lets us use” her estate in Montecito, Calif., because the price is “feasible.”

Winfrey, 70, also was involved in planning the festivities and arranged for fireworks to go off as the bride and groom made their exit at the end of the event.

King, who wore a blue one-shoulder dress for the occasion, said the “color of the day was blue,” but Smith wore a white strapless Amsale wedding gown to walk down the aisle.

The couple wrote their own vows, which the broadcast journalist said was her favorite part.

“At one point, Will said, ‘I know the man I am, but with you, I know the man I want to be.’ That gave me goosebumps,” she recalled.

King also said she has never seen the kind of love that her 37-year-old son and his new wife share.

“You go to weddings, and everyone’s in love, but there’s something about these two that I thought was very epic and it was next-level,” she gushed.

“So, it’s always nice when you can see your own children happy and married.”

The TV host shared that the nuptials were “strictly for family” and that seeing her ex-husband, William Bumpus, with his girlfriend was “all good.”

“I said hi and hugged and everything,” she said of her former spouse, to whom she was married from 1982 to 1993. “It was lovely. It was all great.”

King said the “beautiful day” was “filled with love” and revealed the newlyweds are planning to have a “big dance party” with their friends at a later date.

Winfrey was also present when Bumpus Jr. proposed to Smith in February.

The legendary talk show host discreetly filmed the moment that her BFF’s son got down on one knee in a garden.

King’s daughter, Kirby Bumpus, was also on hand for the engagement.
