Get out those dancing shoes and get ready to celebrate, because Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy are officially married!

The Dancing With the Stars stars wed on Saturday at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palo Verdes, California, People reports. Their ceremony took place underneath a white floral chuppa overlooking the ocean, creating the feel of a magic forest that was perfectly in line with the "classic, pure white look, with some greenery" that Johnson had previously said she wanted. The bride walked down the candle-lit aisle in a long-sleeved Vera Wang gown, which she paired with a custom crystal headpiece and a long veil, and the groom donned a black velvet tuxedo.

The guest list was basically a DWTS reunion, with Adam Rippon and Lindsay Arnold serving in Johnson's bridal party, along with costars Hayley Erbert, Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Alan Bersten, Artem Chigvintsev and Brandon Armstrong. Plus, competitors Nikki Bella, Candace Cameron Bure, and Alfonso Ribeiro, as well as Chmerkovskiy and Johnson’s former partners Joe Amabile, Normani Kordei, Laurie Hernandez, and Ginger Zee, were all there to cut a rug in honor of the couple.

Johnson and Chmerkovskiy shared their first dance to "La Vie en Rose," and guests toasted them over a five-tier wedding cake from Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica, California. The confection had three flavors, one being a custom (and delicious-sounding) milk chocolate hazelnut with Valrhona chocolate pearls and yellow butter cake inspired by Chmerovsky's love of Nutella. The others were banana chocolate chip, Johnson’s favorite, and a dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate buttercream, caramel and Maldon flaky sea salt.

Not only did they serve their tower of wedding cake—which happened to be decorated with handmade sugar rosettes, a stripe of gold shimmer, and a gold monogram—they had an entire dessert bar, according to People. Guests had their choice between the traditional wedding cake, hazelnut cheesecake cherry brûlée, chocolate mousse fudge torte, and a caramel cheesecake crème brûlée.

On the savory side of the menu, the couple served their 200 guests crab-avocado salad, Hawaiian hearts of palm with sweet pepper dressing, braised seven-spiced short ribs, dill-crusted salmon, and heirloom cauliflower steak.

After their first dance, Johnson changed into her second look of the night: A white cap-sleeve dress designed by Tony Ward for Kleinfeld Bridal. According to photos obtained by People, the dress featured an embellished bodice, high neckline, and tulle skirt. She kept her same accessories from the ceremony—a custom-made crystal headpiece by Bridal Styles Boutique and circular drop earrings by Jacob & Co—for the second look.

The couple has been together since 2016, and Chmerkovskiy memorably popped the question in Venice, Italy, last summer. "I knew the moment I met you, you were the man of my dreams and I wanted to be with you forever," Johnson captioned a photo of her now-husband down on one knee. And Chmerkovskiy shared the same photo, writing, "I can’t wait to make you my wife."

Well, the wait is over, and we're willing to bet the dance floor was lit in celebration.
