Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson got hitched and are officially off the market despite reports that he had been caught on a dating app.

On Saturday, April 13, 2019, the Dancing with the Stars' pros walked down the aisle in front of 200 of their loved ones, amid the beautiful view of the ocean at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palo Verdes, California.

But there was scandal brewing before the wedding!

Radar spies came across Val's profile on the invitation-only Raya app on Feb. 16, 2019, while he was engaged to Jenna.

According to sources, profiles are visible when suitors are active.

"So clearly he's on there looking for action," an insider said at the time.

"It's scummy and gross," the source added.

After Radar's scoop, however, Val and Jenna continued to plan their wedding.

On Saturday, the resort location was beautifully decorated with an assortment of flowers, dashes of greenery and candles with modern gold touches. A string quartet played as Jenna, 25, proceeded towards her groom, 33, wearing a long-sleeved Vera Wang mermaid gown, custom made crystal stoned headpiece and a long Bridal Styles Boutique-designed veil.

Fellow DWTS alum, ice skater Adam Rippon, and pro Lindsay Arnold were Jenna's bridesmaids alongside So You Think You Can Dance pro Gabby Diaz and her friend Lani. Jenna's sisters Stacy Johnson Bills and Jill Zenger were the maids of honor.

Val, clad in a black velvet tuxedo designed by Brooks Brothers, stood next to groomsmen Nicole Volynets, Ted Volynets, Igor Drobyazko, Alex Samusevich and Eugene Livshits and best man/brother Maks Chmerkovskiy, as he awaited his bride.

Val followed in Maks' footsteps by marrying a fellow DWTS dancer. Maks, 39, wed Peta Murgatroyd in 2017.

Val and Jenna exchanged personally written vows and matching wedding bands and incorporated a few meaningful traditions from their respective cultures.

While Jenna was born in Utah, Val hails from the Ukraine.

For the reception, Jenna changed into a beautiful white dress designed by Kleinfeld.

The newlyweds' first dance was to the famous French love song "La Vie En Rose."

Crab and avocado salad, braised short rib, dill crusted salmon, wilted baby kale, parmesan mashed potatoes and the dramatic five-tier wedding cake were served to guests including DWTS pros Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Mark Ballas and former contestants Alfonso Ribeiro, Normani Kordei, Laurie Hernandez and Ginger Zee to name a few.

According to PEOPLE, Val and Jenna have had an on and off romance since 2015. He proposed to her in Venice, Italy and the couple announced their engagement in June 2018.

Val had previously dated one of his former celebrity DWTS partners, Amber Rose.
