Our favorite boy band member said “Bye Bye Bye” to single life over the weekend. Former N*SYNC star Lance Bass married artist Michael Turchin on Saturday at the iconic Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, executed by the talented Sharon Sacks (who also coordinated the Kimye wedding). 

Of course, their elaborate celebration had a medley of musical acts, ranging from Bass's former bandmate JC Chasez to his 13-year-old niece (adorbs!). Their ceremony was a perfect balance of Bass's Southern Baptist upbringing and Turchin's Jewish heritage, officiated by actress friends JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Their handsome palette incorporated “dark, rich, red and purple flowers with a lot of dark green mixed in,” working perfectly with the venue's ornate design. “We wanted it to be a little dark and sexier than a traditional white, flowery wedding,” Turchin tells PEOPLE.


As they did with their wedding bands, the creative couple put their stamp on their tuxedos in a custom design collaboration with stylist Jeff Kim and Josh Yunger, president of J.Yunger.

“They are traditional black tuxedos, but each of us put a little twist on them by incorporating a little dark navy,” says Turchin, who wore a black shirt and black bowtie while Bass wore a white shirt with navy bowtie.

For the reception, the grooms hopped on the second outfit bandwagon and sported velvet suits, Turchin in blue and black, Bass in hunter green.

According to PEOPLE, they certainly splurged on the sweets! The Butter End Cakery designed an elaborate seven-tier cake which included carrot cake with walnuts and cream cheese frosting as well as chocolate almond cherry cake with a cherry butter cream frosting. They also served up Steve's Ice Cream, which is famous for unique flavors like banana bread pudding, iced coffee and doughnuts and mint julep, and a selection of their favorite chocolates from Dylan's Candy Bar.

Lucky for us, the grooms are allowing us inside their special day as part of an E! exclusive, Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, airing Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. ET. We know we'll be tuning in!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
