PEOPLE magazine confirmed the news of the nuptials between Meghan and Ben, which took place before sunset at their family ranch in Sedona, Arizona.  The statement also reveals that John gave Meghan away during the ceremony, and they all celebrated with dinner and dancing afterwards.

It hasn’t been the easiest of months for Senator McCain.  He revealed back in September that he is battling what is called glioblastoma, more commonly referred to as stage four brain cancer.

This may have been why the ceremony was taken place so quickly after his announcement, as Meghan and Ben have only been engaged since July, and didn’t reveal the big news until early November when she was cohosting her new gig at The View

Looks like Senator McCain approves of his daughter’s choice in Ben, as he said on an appearance during The View last month: “He’s a very fine man.  I’m very proud and very happy that they’re so happy together.”
