After coming out last year, and making history at that, Chely Wright then announced her engagement to girlfriend Lauren Blizter. And now the duo have officially announced to People that they've tied the knot! 

Chely and Lauren, a GLBT Civil Rights activist, got hitched Saturday in front of 200 guests at Lauren's Aunt's home in Connecticut. As for the most important question the dresses? Both brides donned traditional white gowns, yet decided to not wear veils as they told the mag: "We like our hair too much!"

Amen, sisters.

Clearly, the mellow couple stuck to their vow to E's very own Marc Malkin that, "there will be no bridezillas at our wedding." Further enhancing the relaxed mood, they opted out of hiring a wedding band and instead chose to have a deejay spin. As for the menu, although a vegan, Chely let Lauren make the decision to serve barbecue from New York's Blue Smoke, exclaiming, "Lauren's idea—not my influence!"

Yet what did influence the couple was their faith. The non-traditional pair opted to highlight the uniqueness of the day by having both a reverend and a rabbi preside over the ceremony, since Chely is Christian and Lauren is Jewish.

So, congrats and mazel tov!
