David Tutera is best known for the extravagant, lavish weddings he plans for the celebrity set. But now, it's his own nupitals we're talking about! The celeb event planner just wed his fiancé Joey Toth this weekend in Los Angeles, California. And from the luxurious, Old Hollywood vibe to the custom-made dance floor to the 20,000 roses (seriously!), the big day was everything you'd expect from the wedding planning extraordinaire!

After dating for three years, Tutera proposed to his sweetheart last April while vacationing in Hawaii. The pair headed to a sacred beach with Tutera's 3-year-old daughter Cielo in tow, Tutera previously explained to Radar Online. "I had practiced with Cielo for the whole week... And she looked at him in his eyes and said, 'Will you marry us?' He started to cry, I started to cry and his hands started to shake," remembered Tutera. "I got on my knee, and did it the old fashioned way. He immediately said 'yes.' It was so beautiful."

With a proposal that special, the world was pretty much expecting an über-romantic wedding from these two cuties. And that's exactly what went down!

"Expectations started to grow both from our guests and the media and then from ourselves," Tutera explained to People magazine. "We realized that we had to step it up. We honestly thought we were going to do a 60 person destination wedding and call it a day. It did not turn out that way!" How it did turn out though was simply gorgeous.

On Saturday, April 1, Tutera and Toth said "I do" at the Hollywood United Methodist Church—making them the first same-sex couple to wed at the historic locale. According to People, the church was filled with countless candles and wrought iron candelabras, with 280 guests showing up to see the duo tie the knot. "Our whole service is a really dramatic and very important," said Tutera. "It's based on equality, peace and love in this world. We're doing a lot of things slightly on the activism side and certainly on the importance of love and equality."

Post-"I dos," the newlyweds and their guests headed to the Millennium Biltmore Hotel for a reception that toted a vintage, "1920s, Old Hollywood" vibe, according to the WE TV groom. There, the ballroom was outfitted in a clean and chic black-and-white color palette with touches of metallic gold. Guests dined on luxe mirrored tabletops and cut loose on a custom black-and-white dance floor, surrounded by the event's jaw-dropping 20,000 roses.

"My life has peace, support and purity with a partner that is always there every moment of our lives," reflected Tutera. "We always say every day is an adventure. Today was an adventure and a journey, but we know tomorrow will be another one!"
