“Gabe is the most loving, kind and funny guy I know – he makes me laugh every day.

And Gabe’s father, Billy Brown, couldn’t be happier.

“Ami and I are married 40 years this June and there is truly no better gift than to celebrate their marriage and watch the family grow. Noah and Gabe have met their matches and everyone has just made us so proud,” he shares.

On Jan. 14, the couple gathered near the Brown family’s home in Washington state for their first ceremony — but both Raquell, 22, and Gabriel, 29, wanted to keep the celebrations coming.

“We wanted a private ceremony first — my brother Noah actually married us!” Brown previously told PEOPLE.

“We’re so happy to have found each other,” said Brown, “and can’t wait for what life has in store for us.”
