“I think everybody knew that we were going to do it and I think nobody knew if we were going to give them a heads up or not. And I guess we didn’t even know if we were giving ourselves a heads up,” Adam said, adding: “Listen, we’re unpredictable.”

“We always wanted to do something simple and just the two of us. And so we were looking at different options of what we could do and so obviously when you do that, the next best thing that you can do is you reach out to [California marriage officiant] Maria and you ask Maria: ‘When is her next availability for a wedding?’ And she goes, ‘I have availability this week, but I also have something today.’ And so then I said, ‘Listen, Maria, we’re on our way.’ We’re going to be there for the one o’clock appointment in Encino, California, the happiest place on earth.’ ”

The couple, along with their 4-month-old pitbull mix, Tony, had their marriage service in Encino on December 31 dressed in their “Easter Sunday Mass” best.

“It was like what you would get from the dollar store if you knew you had a wedding in five minutes, but it was perfect,” he added.

The newlyweds used the same rings they had picked out together while in Finland before getting engaged back in December of 2020.

“I wanted diamonds in it because I wanted it to glisten,” Adam said of his ring, adding that JP wanted “”a thicker band that has a line carved in through the middle. He did not want diamonds in his. This was the great divide.”

They began to tell their families, and celebrated together, with plans to party properly both in the United States and Finland when the time is right.

“We were in bed by 10:30, but we got home and got right to champagne immediately. No excuses. Winners don’t quit champagne.”

Adam also addressed the possibility of kids: “My womb is barren and JP‘s tubes are tied. So we, unfortunately, are not having kids, but we actually feel really good about it.”

“I think that’s a tell-tale sign of being in a good marriage is I’m glad I did it. That’s my official quote: How do you feel? I’m glad I did it,” he added.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Find out who else just got married in 2022.
