Pia Toscano married dancer Jimmy R. O. Smith at the Angel Orensanz Center in Manhattan, New York on Saturday (1/7) according to Entertainment Tonight.
The American Idol season 10 alum wore a silk gown — which featured a plunging neckline and beaded embroidery on the shoulders — custom-designed by her friend and Project Runway alum, Michael Costello.
“I’ve dreamed of this magical day since I was 4-years-old, and I hoped to find my King,” Pia told ET before saying “I do.”
“Today, all of my childhood dreams come true,” she continued. “I am marrying the absolute love of my life in front of my closest family and friends. I couldn’t be happier!”
The singer and her husband chose John Legend’s “All Of Me” as their first dance. “Being a singer, lyrics are super important to me, and the lyrics of that song describe us and our relationship perfectly,” she said.
“Jimmy and I both had the same vision for our wedding, which made planning a lot easier,” she explained. “Luckily, we had an amazing wedding planner [Phyllis Inserillo] and visual director who both know Jimmy and I personally. They handled a lot for us while we were in Los Angeles, but Jimmy and I were still extremely involved.”
“Making sure that all of our family and friends felt included was our No. 1 priority,” she added. “And making sure I fit in my wedding dress was pretty important as well.”
The wedding party was big.
“I have 3 Matrons of Honor — my sister, Kim, my best friend, Cassie, and my godmother, Rose,” Toscano told ET. “They have been my greatest mentors in my life and I couldn’t imagine this day without these amazing women by my side.”
“Our Best Man is Jimmy’s cousin David,” she added. “David is also an incredible mentor to Jimmy and I. He is like the brother we never had. We are very lucky to have these special people stand beside us.”
Pia confirmed that no American Idol alums were in attendance. “As we decided to have the wedding in New York, it was a bit out of the way for everyone,” she said.
Later, Pia posted a few photos on her Instagram account.
“I married my best friend today,” wrote Pia in the caption. “I’m on cloud nine!”
“The biggest and most amazing bridal party ever!” Pia gushed.
Pia captured this one, simply, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith // 1.7.17”
