Carpoolers‘ Allison Munn married actor Scott Holroyd on Saturday in their home state of South Carolina, the actress tells PEOPLE.

Munn, 33, wore an A-line wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier as she and Holroyd, 32, exchanged traditional vows in front of about 200 guests at the French Huguenot Church in Charleston.

“We grew up together and this is where we’re both from,” says Munn of the wedding location. “So we wanted to treat all of our friends to a traditional Southern wedding.”

The ceremony was followed by a reception at the city’s historic Hibernian Hall, where guests were treated to Southern fare including fried green tomatoes, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs and crab soup.

“It’s all about the Southern vibe,” says Munn.

After the first dance – the newlyweds chose “It Had To Be You” – they cut a four-tiered wedding cake with butter cream frosting.

Although Munn and Holroyd grew up together in South Carolina, they didn’t start dating until 2004 when Holroyd moved to Los Angeles.

“He called me up and we started dating,” says Munn, who also has appeared on TV’s That ’70s Show and What I Like About You. “He walked in with a history. I already knew him and his family, so I knew he was a solid guy.”

The two were engaged last December in Paris. “He makes me laugh and calms me down,” says Munn. “He brings a lot of joy into my life.”
