President Obama and his family traveled to New York Saturday night for the wedding of White House chef Sam Kass to MSNBC personality Alex Wagner.

Obama's plans to attend the wedding had been an open secret for days, but were confirmed by White House Deputy Press Secretary Jennifer Friedman only when the presidential motorcade arrived at the wedding venue in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. shortly before 7 p.m.

First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia accompanied the president. The First Family could be seen in black formal attire boarding the smaller "baby" Air Force One to New York for the evening. They're expected back in Washington early Sunday.

In addition to serving as White House chef, Kass, 34, is the president's senior policy adviser of food and nutrition policy, and director of Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative. He's marrying Wagner, 36, the host of the daytime Now with Alex Wagner on MSNBC.

The wedding is at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a working farm and restaurant that's become a foodie destination in the Hudson Valley
