They may compete on the dance floor but clearly the competition doesn’t stop there. Over the weekend, Dancing With The Stars hunk Maksim Chmerkovskiy married the beautiful Peta Murgatroyd at a breathtaking castle out on Long Island. Unfortunately, dancing co-star Julianne Hough didn’t RSVP “attending” because she was a little busy getting married to Brooks Laich, Canadian ice hockey player. Let’s take a walk down the aisle and decide who wins the Mirrorball Trophy this round.
Location! Location! Location!
Max and Peta opted for a fairytale wedding and tied the knot at the beautiful Oheka Castle. Julianne and hubby Brooks decided to keep it nice and intimate out in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
Verdict: Max and Peta’s Disney movie wedding wins in our book! Because you can never go wrong with a castle.
Julianne wore a custom Marchesa gown at the altar while Peta WOWed guests with her off-the-shoulder, multi-tiered Karen Sabag Couture ball gown.
Verdict: Custom Marchesa for the win here!
Brooks decided to leave his gear at home and went with a classic black and white tuxedo. Maks thought the bride shouldn’t be the only one wearing white at this party and went with a slimming white tux.
Verdict: Both men looked so dapper but we love a traditionalist – Brooks!
Squad vs. Squad
Julianne’s squad pre-gamed with the couple in Lake Couer d’Alene, while Peta and Maks threw a pool after-bash. Needless to say, both events made some waves.
Verdict: Both bashes required inflatable swans, but lakes are gross. Maks and Peta!
The final score?! It’s a tie! Both brides looked as gorgeous as ever and did their big days their own way.
Because when it comes to weddings, it’s never a competition!
