Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson Get Married & Celebrate In True 'Dancing With The Stars' Fashion
Most people have pretty boring stories about how they met their significant others, so the interesting ones are few and far between. And when it comes to meeting on a competition reality show and falling in love? That can't be topped, and for that reason, I am eternally jealous of these celebrity newlyweds. On Sunday, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson got married in Los Angeles after meeting on the set of Dancing With The Stars last year. Guys, one of the stars of Shark Tank met his now wife on another reality show — and not even one about dating. How cool is that?!
And even better, it sounds like their wedding was a celebration of the way they first met. According to Us Weekly, the bride and groom had their first dance to the Etta James classic, "At Last," followed by a DWTS-style performance (including their costars from the show) of Lunchmoney Lewis' "Bills" ... AKA the first song that Herjavec and Johnson performed as dance partners on the show. Not only did that have to be so cool for their guests to witness, but it was also the perfect way to pay tribute to the reason the wedding was happening in the first place.
And that dance wasn't the only way DWTS tied into their big day. Fellow dance pro Cheryl Burke was one of Johnson's bridesmaids, and Carson Kressley, who also competed on the show, was in attendance, too. The couple managed to pack in a shower and a bachelorette party before ending the weekend with the actual wedding, which must mean they're completely exhausted right about now. And for the record, the photos People shared of the nuptials proves that the busy schedule was totally worth it. It looked gorgeous!
News broke that Herjavec and Johnson were dating in May 2015 when they were caught smooching in Palm Springs. In February, they announced their engagement and revealed they planned to tie the knot right away. Looks like their plans worked out!
Congrats to the newlyweds! I am looking forward to more photos from this reception — and I'm dying to see that dance for myself, too. Please let a video exist!
