- Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert are getting married
- The two have been partners for a long time
- THIS is what we know about it
According to 'Entertainment Weekly', the happy couple tied the knot and said their vows in an intimate Redwood Forest wedding ceremony that fittingly featured an "epic" dance party, naturally. And they were also in amazing company for the occasion.
As reported by 'People' magazine, among the celebrity guests were Hough's sister, Julianne Hough, and friends including Nina Dobrev, Maria Menounos, and Shaun White. Fellow dancer Mark Ballas, who recently retired from competing on the show, served as Hough's best man.
What a party it must have been!
"We got married right in front of this mother tree that's surrounded by all these smaller trees," Erbert told 'People' and 'Brides'. "They drop all the seeds, and it plants kind of like an army of children to protect the mother. The symbolism of it was beautiful. We're here, planting our seeds to grow our family."
"It's one of the most breathtaking places," Hough said. "It's like a fairy tale." What about their first dance? After all, for two dancers, that must have been the biggest part of the night!
According to sources, the newlyweds shared their first dance to "Fall Into Me" by Forest Blakk. Before the wedding, they acknowledged that while attendees may be expecting a grand performance from the two trained dancers, they planned to keep things simple.
Their wedding was for them, and not for the crowd. "If we perform, we go on stage, we dance, we do things," Hough explained. "It feels more special for us to not perform. To be on the floor with each other, to listen to music, and just be in the moment."
Fans are absolutely gushing about the news, and so are we! Thanks to 'People' magazine, we have some of Hough's vows!
"It's so interesting what a small sort of piece of metal can do to your whole persona and your whole outlook on everything, where all of a sudden it's sort of like, oh, I have this promise that I carry with me all the time. And to want to be a man to live up to that promise daily for that person and for yourself and for others, it's a powerful thing. It's a beautiful thing. So for me, I'm excited to continue to aspire to be that man each and every day for her, for our animals and for our future family."
