Well? It's official. Former New Kids on the Block heartthrob Donnie Wahlberg married Jenny McCarthy yesterday in St. Charles, Illinois, which just happens to be her hometown.
The ceremony took place at Hotel Baker, a historic property, and yes, three of Donnie's old boy band members were in attendance. Jordan Knight, Danny Wood, and Jonathan Knight all managed to make the trip to support their friend, which is definitely more than we can say for Donnie's brother, Mark Wahlberg.
(Seriously, can you believe he skipped out on the wedding? What the hell?)
So far there aren't too many details out there about the ceremony or reception, but get this one -- Jenny's wedding dress was supposedly off the rack. (You gotta love it.)
Yep. She apparently bought it at Bergdorf Goodman in July. And while you can't see her too well in this photo, it does look like she was nothing short of stunning in the gown.
Given the fact that Jenny doesn't exactly take herself too seriously, we can only imagine what a rockin' party this little shin-dig was. (OMG. I wonder if Donnie got up and sang with the guys? That would've been pretty bitchin'.)
And don't you love how ... normal this wedding seems? You know, in the sense that it wasn't totally celeb over-the-top indulgent?
Love her or hate her, you gotta love how down-to-earth Jenny is. It's obvious that she couldn't be more thrilled to marry the love of her life, so it's impossible not to share in her joy a little.
Congrats to the happy couple, and best wishes for a long, lasting marriage!
Are you happy for Jenny and Donnie?
