It turns out Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg's August 31 wedding at the Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois was just as romantic and beautiful as we could have imagined.
Us Weekly recently released the couple's wedding album, giving us a glimpse into their big day. The photos show a red rose-encrusted ceremony, with the crimson flowers creating their altar, filling the aisle arrangements, showing up in boutonnieres, and in McCarthy's bouquet. White candles and pale green chairs completed the lush space, where 90 guests witnessed the couple of one year say "I do."

The reception space had equal amounts of red rose accents, from the centerpieces to the menu cards. As for the funny woman's bridal ensemble, we got a closer look at her custom strapless Ines di Santo wedding dress, as well as her unbelievable jewelry. Wahlberg gave her a diamond band to go with her 10-carat yellow sapphire engagement ring, which nicely complemented her chandelier earrings and bracelet.
A slightly less glamorous, but far more meaningful, part of the album is the photo of McCarthy's son Evan getting ready with his future stepfather. "He said to me, 'I have the most important job at the wedding,'" McCarthy gushed to Us about Evan, who walked her down the aisle. "He was perfect."
Other highlights include images of McCarthy posing with her husband's New Kids On The Block bandmate groomsmen, and the newlyweds sharing their first dance to The Sound of Music's "Edelweiss."
"I won the lottery," Wahlberg, who currently stars on Blue Bloods, told Us. McCarthy added: "We are ready to live happily ever after."
And if Wahlberg's tweet, above, is any indication, they already are!
