Reps for Donnie and Jenny confirmed that the pair was married in a quiet ceremony with close family and friends on Sunday evening. The ceremony lasted just 20 minutes.

The gorgeous ceremony was not one McCarthy reveled in putting together. She told Us Weekly in July, "Really, I’m so bad [at planning]. The problem is, I consider myself to be kind of like a dude … Like, I just kind of want to show up and drink."

It was a quick engagement for the couple at just four months. Wahlberg proposed to McCarthy this past April with a dazzling yellow sapphire engagement ring. The actress made the news public on The View, showing off the sparkler to her then co-hosts.
