Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers exchanged "I do's" Saturday afternoon on the beach in Malibu.

An eyewitness at the wedding told E! News that the wedding ceremony was filmed for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which Richards just joined as the show's newest cast member. Guests at the wedding included Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell as well as fellow Housewives stars Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer.

Designer Mark Zunino shared a photo himself standing next to Richards in her wedding dress. According to his Instagram caption and a video posted earlier, the designer had just 24 hours to make a dress.

The dress itself is strapless and embroidered with flowers. The skirt is short in the front and flows at the back. The source told E! News that Richards' bouquet consisted of white and pink peonies. "She looked beautiful and very natural," the insider said.

Phypers opted for a more casual look in dark jeans and a white button-down shirt. The bride walked down the aisle to Metallica's "Unforgiven."

One symbol at the wedding showcased the couple's vows to each other. The insider told E! News that Richards and Phypers stood in front of a backdrop composed of pink and hot pink roses in the design of the infinity sign. As they were pronounced husband and wife, "they kissed for a long time at the end."

The newlyweds were showing pure enthusiasm and devotion to each other, according to the eyewitness. They said, "They seem very much in love and they were nuzzling their noses and kissing over and over."

Phypers and the actress started dating in 2017, and their engagement was announced just days ago, but Us Weekly reported the two have been engaged since January.

Richards and Phypers have shared lots of PDA with each other on social media. In June, the former Playboy model shared a picture of him shirtless and asleep in bed. "No words... I'm sorry I am a lucky bitch," she wrote.

Another sweet picture of the happy couple showed them kissing on the beach. She called him her "soulmate" in a hashtag.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
