The rollicking reception, headlined by Elan Artists’ Project M band, gave way to nonstop dancing with the blissful pair and their guests, including Emma Roberts, Becca Tobin and Ashley Tisdale, letting loose well into the night.

One special performance came from Darren Criss, Michele’s Glee costar and dear friend, who hopped onstage with guitar in hand to serenade the couple with a selection of songs, including “Semi-Charmed Life” and “Moondance.”

Michele, 32, who changed into a white Monique Lhuillier lace mini for the reception, and Reich, 36, in a white track suit over a T-shirt emblazoned with his new wife’s face, even joined Criss onstage for his rendition of “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia.

“Everyone had such a good time,” says another guest. “There was never a moment that the dance floor wasn’t filled.”

Having curated the night’s playlist herself, including tunes from Beyonce, Queen, the Rolling Stones and Florence and the Machine, Michele was thrilled that guests had a high-spirited good time.

As for Reich, “I’m not afraid to leave it all out on the dance floor!” he says.

By the end of the night, the newlyweds were on top of the world.

“They seemed like the happiest couple! So in love!” says Goreski, 41. “And so excited for their life together!”
