Pia Toscano just tied the knot!
The American Idol alum married longtime love and dancer Jimmy R.O. Smith in a romantic ceremony on Saturday. The newlyweds’ closest family and friends gathered in New York City in honor of the joyous occasion.
“Jimmy & I got married today January 7th at Angel Orensanz in Manhattan. We were surrounded by so much love, our family, friends & a surprising but beautiful winter wonderland,” the singer told E! News in a statement. “I have never been so happy in my life.”
Toscano looked stunning (as per usual) in a custom silk gown designed by Michael Costello. The modern look featured a sheer train and elaborate lace-embroidered cascading sleeves.
American Idol fans will remember the songstress from the series’ 11th season. Her elimination in the tenth round shocked viewers, but she’s gone on to lead quite a career for herself both as a solo artist and as a backup singer for Jennifer Lopez.
As for her nuptials, Pia told ET, “I’ve dreamed of this magical day since I was 4-years-old, and I hoped to find my King.”
When it came to the invite list, the lovebirds kept it fairly exclusive, which meant no fellow Idol alums were in attendance. “As we decided to have the wedding in New York, it was a bit out of the way for everyone,” she revealed.
Smith popped the question back in late 2015 about two years after meeting Pia. As it turns out, none other than J. Lo introduced the pair to each other, as both were working on the “Aint Your Mama” singer’s tour together.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Entertainment Tonight was the first to report the happy news.
