Jackass prankster Bam Margera has married his childhood friend, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

On Saturday, the 27-year-old professional skateboarder and MTV star exchanged vows with Missy Rothstein, 26, in downtown Philadelphia before about 350 friends and family members – and an MTV crew, which recorded the event for his reality show, Bam’s Unholy Union, the Associated Press reports.

The wedding celebration included a performance by Iggy Pop, as well as an appearance by fellow skateboarder Tony Hawk. The wedding will be shown in the final episode of Bam’s Unholy Union in early April.

Margera (who was once reportedly linked to Jessica Simpson) and Rothstein got engaged last January while shopping at the Cartier store in the King of Prussia Mall, according to a recent story in the New York Times. Rothstein tried on an engagement ring that happened to fit her perfectly – and Margera proposed on the spot.

“I was like, ‘Now’s the time,’ ” Margera told the Times. “We just sat there and drank three bottles of Champagne. Then we forgot to get gas on the way home, and we straight up ran out of gas on Route 202.”

The couple have known each other since the sixth grade. After being out of touch for a while when they were both involved in other relationships, Margera and Rothstein got back together two years ago.

“I love his spontaneity, even though it drives me crazy sometimes,” Rothstein said. “I’d be bored if he was normal like everyone else.”

The couple will honeymoon in Dubai.
