Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson’s wedding served as date night for Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev!

The Total Bellas star, 35, accompanied her former Dancing With the Stars partner to the Chmerkovskiy and Johnson’s nuptials in California on Saturday.

Bella, who recently told PEOPLE she’s “having fun” with Chigvintsev, shared a series of Instagram Story selfies en route to the wedding.

In one clip, which was set to “Slow It Down” by the Lumineers, the former wrestling star showed off her strapless black dress, red lipstick and black sunglasses.

In another video, Bella turned the camera to show Chigvintsev, who returned her “Hey,” with a “Hey” of his own.

The professional dancer, 36, later shared a video of him and Bella experimenting with Instagram filters.

“Two beautiful souls becoming one. Their love is so beautiful @dance10jenna @valentin,” Bella wrote on her Instagram Story along with a portrait of the newlyweds.

The couple – who competed together on season 25 in 2017 – were on hand to watch Chmerkovskiy and Johnson tie the knot in a romantic ceremony overlooking the ocean at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palo Verdes.

They joined fellow Dancing With the Stars professionals and alum like Hayley Erbert, Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Candace Cameron Bure, Alfonso Ribeiro, Joe Amabile, Normani Kordei, Laurie Hernandez and Ginger Zee.

Bella’s romance with Chigvintsev is her first since calling off her engagement to John Cena last summer.

PEOPLE confirmed in January that she and Chigvintsev were casually dating, and Bella later confirmed the pair were an item in March with an Instagram photo that featured her giving him a kiss on the cheek.

“Yes, we are dating,” she later said on her The Bellas Podcast with twin sister Brie. “Yes, I spend the night at his house. Yes, we have date lunches at Joan’s on Third and we like to get food for his house – or should I say, produce from the farmer’s market.”

Still, Bella stopped short of making things too official.

“Artem and I are dating. We are not engaged, we are not married, we’re not boyfriend and girlfriend, we don’t say, ‘I love you,’” she said. “Yeah, we make out. What else? He’s a great kisser.”

Bella told PEOPLE last week that she was surprised by the reaction her Instagram picture prompted – and again insisted she’s “not fully taken,” despite her affection for Chigvintsev.

“I posted a photo of us because we’re dating and we’re having fun. Then everyone went (and said) we were official,” she said. “It’s been great. I adore him.”

Cena, meanwhile, was recently spotted holding hands with a mystery woman in Vancouver, later identified as Shay Shariatzadeh, a project manager for tech company Avigilon.

On an episode of her podcast, Bella confessed that while she was happy to see Cena moving on, it still sent her stomach into “knots.”

“As long as John is happy, I’m happy,” she said. “Because of how sad I made him and how much I felt like I hurt him, when I saw the big smile on his face with the paparazzi photos [with Shariatzadeh], I think that’s why I didn’t want to s—my pants. I felt happy for him. I am very happy for him.”
