The King of Rock n' Roll is surely smiling down and doing a little celebratory dance right now.

Riley Keough, actress and granddaughter of the iconic Elvis Presley, has wed longtime boyfriend Ben Smith-Peterson, E! News confirms. The two lovebirds, who announced their engagement back in August, swapped vows in an intimate and star-studded ceremony Wednesday night in Napa Valley, Calif.

Guests included Keough's bestie Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Zoë Kravitz, Abby Lee and Courtney Eaton.

The 25-year-old's beau, an Australian stuntman who met her on the set of the 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road, revealed that he popped the question through a funny picture post on social media.

"So that happened..." he said on Facebook in a photo post, in which he appears shirtless (and sporting a chest tattoo of wolves) alongside Riley, who is wearing a sparkly ring on her ring finger. And it looks like the twosome didn't waste any time when it came to planning the anticipated nuptials.

Just a few months later, Keough was spotted with her gal-pals, including K.Stew, celebrating her bachelorette party, which took place at the famed Madonna Inn in San Luis Obisbo, Calif.

Riley, whose birth name was Danielle Riley Keough, is the eldest grandchild of the late King, who died in 1977 at age 42, and daughter of singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and musician ex-husband Danny Keough. The actress made her on-screen debut in the 2010 movie The Runaways, which also starred Stewart.

Riley is Elvis' first grandchild to tie the knot. His other grandchildren are her brother, singer Benjamin Keough, 22, and Lisa Marie's 6-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, from her current marriage to musician Michael Lockwood.
