Now that’s something to sing about!

American Idol alum Kimberly Caldwell tied the knot with longtime love Jordan Harvey Wednesday evening at the Bougainvillea Estates in Palm Springs, California, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

Celebrating their nuptials at an intimate reception with their family and friends immediately following the ceremony, the bride, 32, stunned in a custom Walter Mendez dress.

The couple asked that men arrive in black tie and women wear long, sequined gowns.

The bride, groom and their guests also released Chinese lanterns at midnight to mark the New Year.

Caldwell shared a sweet photo of her and Harvey, 30 – an American soccer player who currently plays for the Vancouver Whitecaps – from their rehearsal dinner on Monday.

Hours before the ceremony, the TV personality gave fans a glimpse of her bridal look as she got ready with a few girlfriends. “Today’s the big day!!! @jordancharvey,” she captioned a photo.
