    Prior to exchanging vows, the couple insisted that they would wed soon, but the actual date remained a secret.

    "We don't know when. We're kind of just floating in the 'I'm your fiancé' kind of fun of it," Jenny told ET in May. "There's no rush. We've done it before. We know it will happen. I think it's just a matter of our schedules."

    This marks the second marriage for both, as Jenny was married to John Mallory Asher from 1999 to 2005 and Donnie was married to Kimberly Fey from 1999 to 2010.

    "The revolution will not be televised, nor will this wedding I don't think," Donnie said, implying that they would keep the wedding relatively private.

    Jenny announced the engagement news on The View in April, surprising both the studio audience as well as her co-hosts.

    "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie ... and he went into the other room, and out came [my son] Evan with a card that said, 'Will,' and he handed it to me, and I didn't know what was going on yet, and Evan ran away and came back with a card that said 'You,' and then he ran away and I knew what was happening," Jenny recalled. " ... And Donnie's shirt said 'Me' with a question mark. And I just started crying."

    She then showed off her gorgeous, giant 10-carat yellow sapphire ring to the ladies.

    The couple have been dating since July 2013 and share three children between them. Donnie has two sons, Xavier and Elijah, from his relationship with his ex-wife, while Jenny also has a son, Evan, from her marriage to Asher.

    Donnie's brother, actor Mark Wahlberg tweeted out his excitement for the couple earlier today but did not attend the nuptials.

    Congratulations @DonnieWahlberg and @JennyMcCarthy, so happy for you both today.
