Jenny McCarthy and Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg were married Sunday.

The nuptials were held at the beautiful and historic Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois, just outside McCarthy's hometown of Chicago.

According to People magazine, the 41-year-old former The View co-host wore a gown she found during a July shopping excursion at Bergdorf Goodman.

The couple reportedly began dating last summer and became engaged in April in a very unique way.

McCarthy's 12-year-old son Evan gave Donnie a hand in the proposal by delivering notes to his mom with the words "Will" and "You" and "Marry," followed by Donnie's big entrance wearing a t-shirt that said "Me?"

McCarthy posted a photo on Instagram Saturday that appears to have been taken during weekend celebrations.

In attendance at the ceremony was McCarthy's The View co-host, Sherri Shepherd, who posted an Instagram photo before boarding a plane to Chicago, with the caption: "Catching an early morning flight to @jennyannmccarthy & @donniewahlberg's wedding ... What a beautiful day to join as one before God! Congrats to two beautiful people!"

Donnie's New Kids on the Block pals Jordan Knight, Danny Wood and Jonathan Knight also attended the ceremony.

The groom's brother, Mark Wahlberg, was unable to attend, but tweeted his congratulations.

Mark also posted a congratulatory video on Facebook, which is no longer available.

"I love you, Donnie, we're very happy for you," he says in the video, surrounded by his wife and four kids. "Sorry we couldn't be there, we'll see you soon."

To which the groom responded:

This is the second marriage for both. Donnie also has two sons, 21-year-old Xavier and 13-year-old Elijah.
