3. Scott and Phan had quite the to-do
The couple was married in Italy’s La Piazza del Boao, an historical castle. Phan had two dresses — one for the ceremony, one for the reception — both made by designer Claire Pettibone. Scott wore a kilt — after all, he is Scottish — but changed into a custom, GotStyle tuxedo for the celebration. The couple’s friends and family spent an entire week at La Piazza del Borgo, which was a great way to really spend quality time together before the actual wedding.

Because Scott had a good run on Dancing with the Stars, he was adamant that his first dance with Phan be legendary, according to CountryLiving. Scott’s former dance partner Emma Slater and her husband, Sasha Farber, appeared on Property Brothers at Home, where they showed the couple some moves. Later, Slater and Farber actually choreographed Scott and Phan’s first dance.

5. The couple’s ‘gift registry’
Scott and Phan skipped the standard registry, according to CountryLiving. Instead, they asked for everyone to donate to WE, an organization that provides people with clean water in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The couple decided they wanted to give back after they took a trip to Kenya, and every donation will go toward their goal of providing 50,000 people with clean water for life.

7. The bachelor and bachelorette parties were surprises
According to CountryLiving, neither half of the couple knew anything about their pre-wedding parties.
