Congratulations to Danny Gokey, who married model Leyicet Peralta yesterday. People magazine reports the couple said their vows among family and friends.

“We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together,” the newlyweds told People in a statement. “We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now.”

In lieu of gifts, the couple asked their approximately 100 guests to make donations to Sophia’s Heart, the children’s charity founded by Danny to honor his late wife, Sophia, who died in 2008 after a routine surgery for congenital heart disease.

The American Idol alum and his new bride kept things low key, according to People. “We wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding of just friends and family,” the couple said. “The theme of the wedding was romance and love.”
