“We’re both very traditional,” Nel-Peters told PEOPLE before the special day. “We wanted to look back at the wedding and see that it was intimate, elegant, and traditional. We definitely wanted it to be something that we could look back on and know that nothing was dated. We want to remember this day for the rest of our lives.” (RELATED: Tim Tebow Is Driving Up All-Star Ticket Prices. Is His MLB Debut Closer Than Ever?)

“I’ve been looking forward to three things,” Tebow also shared before the ceremony. “The first moment I see her in her wedding dress, the first kiss, and the first dance together as man and wife. It’s such a special night.”

“I’ve been waiting my entire life for someone special, who I can spend the rest of my life with,” he added. “I was waiting for the right person to come along. And now I’m marrying Demi. I can’t wait to see what our future holds. All of my dreams have come true. It was 100 percent worth the wait.”

As previously reported, Tebow got down on one knee and popped the question to the beauty pageant winner one year ago.
