Britney Spears and Sam Asghari's wedding featured a classic ceremony.

The newly married couple took a "traditional approach" to their nuptials on Thursday, opting not to write their own vows for the 10-minute-long ceremony at Spears' Los Angeles home, according to Reverent Clint Hufft, who officiated the wedding.

"They wanted something simple, sweet, to the point," Hufft tells PEOPLE, noting that Spears, 40, and Asghari, 28, incorporated romantic works by classic writers into the ceremony. "The focus was really the depth of love and almost the practical part that love plays within a relationship and a marriage specifically."

The newlyweds may have utilized classic, pre-written vows, but the ceremony was filled with unique love, passion, and respect between the couple as well as their guests, according to the reverend.

"It wasn't just some fancy, full of pink flowers moment," says Hufft, who previously officiated Paris Hilton's wedding to Carter Reum — both of whom were also in attendance at Spears' wedding. "It had wonderful depth to it in regards to what they were walking into and how much they believed in each other, and I thought that was great."

Despite also featuring other A-list guests including Madonna, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, and, among others, Hufft says everyone left their egos at the door and celebrated the couple.

"The guests that were invited, I didn't feel that air of callousness. I felt an air of joy and support coming from everybody for Britney and Sam," he details. "Everybody was just really encouraging and supportive."

As a wedding officiant, Hufft says he looks for couples to feel truly connected, as though "the rest of the world kind of disappears" when they're together at the altar, and he claims Spears and Asghari were a leading example of that love.

"They were so locked into each other," he exclaims, adding that the wedding was a touching experience. "It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies that I've ever been blessed to be a part of."
