Maks Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd's Wedding Pics Are Magical
The best wedding celebrations gather friends and family for good food, beautiful scenery, and, preferably, lots and lots of dancing. People reported that Dancing with the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy got married on Saturday, and they definitely had that last one covered. The longtime couple made it official at Oheka Castle in Long Island, New York, making it a day full of vows and views. From the castle backdrop to the spontaneous rainbow, photos of picturesque ceremony and reception show a magical wedding. Of course, no fancy decor could distract from the main event: Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy's first dance as a married couple.
Fans had high expectations for that first dance. After all, the two are both professional dancers on DWTS, and they've both coached stars to victory. They got together officially in 2014, and announced their engagement (through dance, of course) in 2015. About a year later, the couple had their first son Shai. According to People, there were plenty of DWTS cast present for their big day, including Tony Dovolani, Rumer Willis, Sharna Burgess, Jenna Johnson, and Candace Cameron Bure. The couple opted for a simple slow dance, and brought out some of their signature moves later in the night.
