Congratulations to Danny Gokey and Leyicet Peralta, who tied the knot over the weekend. Gokey and Peralta announced their engagement just last month, and said “I do” on Jan. 29.

“We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together,” the couple told PEOPLE following their big day. “We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now.”

The two exchanged their vows in front of about 100 friends and family members who attended the low-key ceremony down in Florida. “We wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding of just friends and family,” the newlyweds said, adding the wedding’s theme was “romance and love.”

Following the nuptials, Gokey and his new bride celebrated their new title over a three-tier wedding cake of pure “chocolaty heaven.”

This is the second marriage for the former ‘American Idol‘ contestant. His first wife, Sophia, passed away in 2008 following a routine surgery for congenital heart disease. Gokey founded Sophia’s Heart, a children’s charity, in her honor. The newlyweds asked all gifts for their wedding to be made in a donation form to the charity.
