Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd Actually Had Two Weddings!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has revealed that he and wife Peta Murgatroyd got married days before walking down the aisle for their fairytale wedding!

The Dancing With the Stars couple tied the knot in a small city hall ceremony and Maks shared a video on his Instagram account to mark his one-year anniversary.

“Before we did it in front of 300🤵🏻👰🏼,” Maks wrote. “This was one of the most exciting days of my life! Everything felt very festive, I couldn’t take my eyes off my future wife the whole ride to the City Hall and it was is if New York City herself was marrying us.”

“I can’t believe it’s been a year. I still can’t believe you chose me. I can’t believe I get to live this dream with you by my side for the rest of my life and I promise to earn every second of your love,” he added. “I love you @petamurgatroyd ❤️ Happy anniversary baby.”

Peta added, “Today I married the man I fell in love with so many years ago. I knew he was the one. There was something so electric between us that people will still tell me about to this day. I love you @maksimc, this has been an incredible, outrageous year for us! I pray we are this happy for the rest of our lives. You’re everything I knew you were.”

The 36-year-old former MTV VJ stepped up her game this week with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy after some stumbles the week before.

Vanessa and Maks earned 36 out of 40 points, which placed them in a tie for fourth place this week. Their quickstep dance was set to the tune of Megan Hilty‘s “Let’s Be Bad” from the show Smash.

We’re a great couple. We’re doing our best. She’s giving me all the time that she should, and I can’t wait for this Monday to show what we’ve been working on.”
