Heartfelt best wishes are in order for Danny Gokey and Leyicet Peralta.

The former American Idol finalist tied the knot with this model in Florida yesterday, Gokey's manager confirms to People, with the couple releasing a statement that reads:

"We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together. We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now."

Gokey's first wife, Sophia, passed away in 2008 following surgery for congenital heart disease. Danny and Leyicet have since started a charity in her name and asked guests at their wedding for donations in lieu of gifts.

Described as a day of romance and love, Gokey adds that the event was concluded in the sweetest way possible: via a cake he says was "three tiers of chocolaty heaven."
