Duff Goldman of Food Network's "Ace of Cakes" just shared not one, but three wedding cakes with his new wife.


The 44-year-old exchanged nuptials with writer Johnna Cobry in a gorgeous ceremony on Saturday. The two described the whole thing as a "Gatsby party" due to "random elements."

Complete with a petting zoo and T-rex specimens, the event took place at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. They exchanged vows in the T-rex exhibit before transferring to the Hall of North American Mammals.


On Instagram, Martha Stewart Weddings shared the first pictures of the couple's big day.

Cobry wore a classic white wedding dress that flared out from the waist. She held a large bouquet of red roses in her hand.

Goldman adorned a traditional black suit with a maroon tie and undercoat. He paired it with white and black tennis shoes.


Other pictures from the post showed off the other-worldly setting that the two chose to hold the wedding. We glimpsed the underwater-themed decorations that hung from the ceiling to make up the first cake.

An interview with PEOPLE revealed how Goldman came up with the idea:

“I don’t know how Johnna feels about me likening her to a leafy sea dragon but they are beautiful and graceful and they’re gentle and they’re sweet and so is Johnna."


Two other massive multiple-tiered cakes were part of the celebration. One was a traditional white for the bride. The other was a "meat cake" dressed with meatballs, scrapple, meatloaf, and lamb shawarma.

Goldman further explained:

“The bottom tier is meatballs, the second tier is meatloaf, third tier is lamb shawarma, the top tier is scrapple. Then it’s iced in mashed potatoes, with bacon roses and then we have a chocolate fountain that we put gravy in.”


Of course, being the expert, Goldman spared little when it came to the decor of the cakes, as well as other treats. In the interview, he explained that they "wanted fun food that people actually really want to eat."

He and Cobry described the wedding as "romantic yet tropical" thanks to palms and dark roses found littered about the museum. He and Cobry left for Thailand to enjoy their honeymoon after the wedding.

Afterward, Goldman will return to work for some weeks before he sets off again with his new wife.


He said:

“We’re gonna go everywhere: Asia, North Africa, the Middle East—all over the place."

The marriage comes within a year after Goldman proposed to Cobry last April. At the time, Goldman shared that the need to propose had hit him "like a mule kick to the heart."

In the Instagram post, Goldman says he was showering when he made the decision right then and there. He used butcher's twine to make the ring, and Cobry said yes.


The lovebirds appeared to be quite excited to spend the rest of their lives together and we wish them nothing but happiness.

Another beloved tv star tied the knot on Saturday as well. Steve Guttenberg said "I do" to journalist Emily Smith after being engaged for over two years.

The pair held a small ceremony in Malibu. The "Three Men and a Baby" actor is 60 and met his current wife in 2014. His former colleague Scott Rapoport set them up on a blind date.

From 2018, they've lived together in the Pacific Palisades. Guttenberg was married once before to Denise Bixler until 1992. They had been together for four years.
