Dancing With the Stars professional dancer Louis van Amstel married health coach Joshua Lancaster on Sunday in Sundance, Utah. The pair met in 2009 at a bar in Los Angeles and dated long distance for over four years until Lancaster moved to Utah with Amstel.
“We wanted a winter wedding,” 44-year-old van Amstel told People.
“Sundance happens to be one of the private, romantic traditions between the two of us, so it seems only fitting to host the wedding there,” said 27-year-old Lancaster.
The couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends, including van Amstel’s season 9 partner Kelly Osbourne, who served as flower girl. His season 15 partner Sabrina Bryan, fellow former DWTS pros Chelsie Hightower and Ashly DelGrosso were also in attendance for the outdoor ceremony while Dawson’s Creek star Mary-Margaret Humes served as van Amstel’s best man.
“We had a whole group of wedding party in mumus and Uggs on Sunday morning to stamp down the snow,” said van Amstel. “We wanted it to be an experience, not just a decorated room. We wanted to be surrounded by good friends. I guess it’s the European in me, but I didn’t want anything fake. That’s why Josh and I works so well. He’s completely real.”
Prior to the big day, the Dancing With the Stars pro had been teasing about his wedding on social media.
Dancing with the Stars will return for season 24 in 2017 on ABC.
