It seems like only yesterday Jenny McCarthy was helping people find love on MTV's Singled Out, and Donnie Wahlberg was singing about it with New Kids on the Block — and now they've found love in each other! The happy couple got married at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois on Sunday according to Us Weekly, which is right outside of McCarthy's hometown of Chicago.

The couple clearly couldn't wait to make it official, as Wahlberg proposed only four months ago in April with a sparkling yellow sapphire engagement ring.

McCarthy walked down the aisle wearing a strapless, trumpet gown, which she bought from the bridal salon in Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. The second-time bride completed her wedding-day look with a long veil, romantic waves and a deep red bouquet.

The small, intimate ceremony lasted only 20 minutes and famous guests like Sherri Shepherd and fellow NKOTB members Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight were in attendance.

Wahlberg's brother and Wahlburgers co-star Paul Wahlberg was also on hand, though Mark Wahlberg was not. After rumors swirled the actor missed his brother's wedding because he's not a fan of the bride, Mark posted a heartfelt video on Instagram of his entire family congratulating the newlyweds and explaining the real reasoning for his absence: It was the same day as his daughter Ella's 11th birthday! (Watch the video below.) Mark also took to Twitter to express the sweet sentiment.

Congrats to the happy couple!
