Congratulations are in order as Boys Like Girls guitarist and music producer Paul DiGiovanni and actress Katie Stevens are now officially married!
The two tied the knot on Saturday after getting engaged last year.
According to People, the couple made things official in Nashville, Tennessee surrounded by 250 of their closest friends and family.
“Our first date was five-and-a-half years ago. After dating for a couple months, I knew [he was going to be] my husband,” Stevens told People. “From the second that I met him up until now, he’s made me feel special and more than enough every single day.”
The tear-jerking moments didn’t stop there, as Stevens revealed the surprise she had for DiGiovanni.
“Paul’s mom passed away when he was 15, so I just wanted him to feel like she was with us,” says Stevens. “His aunt gave me a piece of his mom’s wedding dress, and I had it sewn into Paul’s jacket on the inside and covered with a patch.”
DiGiovanni’s Boys Like Girls bandmates Martin Johnson and John Keefe stood by his side on the wonderful day as groomsmen, with the musicians giving a special performance at the couple’s reception.
As previously reported, the couple were engaged on New Years Eve 2017, later revealing the news on Instagram.
Earlier this year, Stevens opened up about how she met DiGiovanni, revealing that she had been a fan long before they ever met.
Stevens told the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she also discussed her American Idol run and her show The Bold Type.
“I actually was in attendance at one of his shows when I was 14 years old,” she says. “It’s not weird though because we didn’t meet then, we met seven years later.”

Congrats to the happy couple! AP wishes you all the best in your life together!
