Former NSYNC band member Lance Bass married Michael Turchin in L.A. on Saturday, putting the exclamation mark on a love story years in the making.

“We love each other so much,” Bass, 35, says of his artist husband, 27, whom he met almost four years ago at a friend’s birthday celebration in Palm Springs, Calif.

The two tied the knot at the historic Park Plaza Hotel.

Wedding planner Sharon Sacks, who did the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wedding earlier this year – produced a unique ceremony, to say the least.

Lance Bass’ wedding included supermodel flower girls, the couple’s dogs, and traditions from Bass’ southern Baptist upbringing and Turchin’s Jewish heritage.

Among the guests on hand were Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump and Bass’s former ‘NSYNC bandmates JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick.

His best known fellow NYSNC member, Justin Timberlake, is currently on tour and was unable to attend, but “feels bad about missing the festivities.”

The grooms wore custom tuxes at the ceremony, officiated by actresses JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, both close friends of theirs.

“You could easily go to a preacher, a pastor or a rabbi but you don’t really know them. You have a stranger in charge of the most important day of your life,” says Bass.

“We loved the idea of using someone who knows us.”

And as for the vows, the grooms wrote those too.

“There’s no one in the world that makes me laugh more than Lance,” says Turchin. “He’s just such an incredible person. I couldn’t imagine waking up next to anybody else.”

You’ll be able to see all of this and more as part of an E! special, Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, airing February 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
