Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, 86, and playmate Crystal Harris, 26, chose New Year’s Eve to tie the knot in a private ceremony at the Playboy mansion in L.A.

They exchanged vows in front of a floral arch situated beneath the grand staircase. The bride and groom tweeted their wedding news and shared a few images:

Crystal wore a pale pink mermaid dress, while Hugh rocked a black tuxedo during an intimate ceremony that was witnessed by two dozen family members and friends.

Hef tweeted, “Crystal & I married on New Year’s Eve in the Mansion with Keith as my Best Man. Love that girl!”

Harris took her husband’s last name. She was so anxious to become Crystal Hefner that she changed her Twitter handle a week before the nuptials.

This was Hugh’s third marriage and Crystal’s first. He famously referred to her as his “runaway bride” in June 2011 after she fled the mansion days before they were set to wed.
