Jenny McCarthy married Donnie Wahlberg on August 31, 2014.

The wedding took place at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois and was planned by Exceptional Events by Shuki Moran.

Among the 90 guests at the ceremony was McCarthy’s former “The View” co-host Sheri Shepherd and Wahlberg’s New Kids on the Block bandmates Jordan Knight, Johnathan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood.

The bride walked down a red rose petal lined aisle on the arm of her son, Evan.

She wore a strapless wedding dress by Ines Di Santo with a sweetheart neckline and flower detailing on the skirt. She carried a bouquet of red roses, and accessorized her look with a Rina Limor diamond bracelet and a long veil.

The groom wore a black Reiss tuxedo. His four New Kids On the Block bandmates served as groomsmen.

The ceremony took place in front of an archway of red roses by Avant Gardenia. Wahlberg presented his bride with a diamond band to compliment her 10-carat yellow engagement ring during the vows.

Following the ceremony, a reception took place in a ballroom where the dinner menu featured sushi, filet mignon and lobster.

The newlyweds shared their first dance to The Sound of Music’s “Edelweiss.” A DJ and jazz trio later provided music for entertainment.

For dessert, a six tiered wedding cake by All Chocolate Kitchen was served. The confection included edible red roses and had alternating layers of vanilla custard, creme brûlée, devil’s food cake and red velvet.

At the end of the evening, they ordered a deep-dish pizza delivery from Giordano’s Pizzeria.

The couple honeymooned at Glenmere Mansion, in the Hudson Valley in New York.
