McKellar announced her nuptial news to People magazine, calling her destination wedding “magical.”
“It was absolutely magical,” McKellar told the magazine. “We were married at 6:30 a.m. in a sunrise ceremony. The forecast predicted rain, but there was not a drop of water in the clear sky. The sun came peaking up over the mountains just as I was walking down the aisle, alongside both my parents.”
McKellar revealed that not only did she and Sveslosky exchange vows with one another, but they also included their sons from previous relationships in the tradition.
“Scott and I exchanged our vows,” she said, “and then we exchanged family vows with our sons Hunter and Draco – we wrote everything ourselves. We also performed a sand ceremony where the four of us poured different colored sand into a vase which we will keep at home.”
McKellar’s mother Mahaila happens to be a professional hula dancer and performed for the crowd of 25 close friends and family members. Afterwards, she gave a hula lesson for all those present.
McKellar, who starred on the last season of Dancing With the Stars, also put her own dancing skills to good use. Along with her new husband, she did a choreographed dance at the reception. “Before we met, Scott had wanted to learn ballroom dancing, and when I got on DWTS, he was even more inspired,” McKellar explained. “Once I left the show – and my broken rib healed – we took lessons together. At the reception, our first dance as husband and wife was a choreographed waltz to “So This Is Love” from Cinderella, which included dips and lifts and other tricks I learned on DWTS.”
McKellar and Sveslosky became engaged back in July. She was previously married to Mike Verta.
