Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy’s Second Wedding in Utah (Photos)
Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy recently held their second wedding reception on Friday, June 28 and have blessed us with stunning photos from their special day.
For Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy saying ‘I do’ once is not enough to consolidate the strong love they have for each other. So, they decided to have a second wedding ceremony!
The pair who initially got married in April decided to step things up a notch and had another reception in Utah.
While speaking to US Weekly, Jenna revealed the reason behind their decision to have a second wedding.
The professional dancer explained that Utah is her hometown, and her younger brother had to miss her wedding in April because he was unavailable. This time, however, they waited until he was home to have the reception.
The happy bride debuted photos from her second wedding on her Instagram page and gushed about the ceremony. She wrote:
“My whole family was finally reunited for the first time in two years, and it made me emotional the whole week!”
She also thanked her in-laws, the Chmerkovskiy Family, for flying out to her home.

This has been the best week of my entire life. The pure love I have been surrounded by these past few days is indescribable. . Round 2 of wedding celebrations here in my hometown. We had every single member of my immediate family (22 of us) together for the first time in two years, the entire Chmerkovskiy family made the trip out to Utah, and all my neighbors and friends I grew with. I don’t think I have stopped smiling from ear to ear. Get ready for me to blow up your feed with some of my favorite pics from this week and our reception!! .

Jenna looked stunning in a fairytale wedding gown that was embellished with pearls and featured an open back and high neck. The iconic dress was by Tony Ward Couture and was gotten from Kleinfeld Bridal.
Leaving her hair in loose waves, Jenna looked like the happiest woman on earth as she posed for photos with her Ukraine native husband. Val, on the other hand, looked like Jenna’s Prince Charming in a tuxedo from Brooks Brothers.
The pair who began dating in 2015 couldn’t have looked more in love with each other.
OUR FAMILIES HAVE NEVER MET
Apart from breaking the norm with two wedding ceremonies, Jenna and Val’s parents never met until the wedding.
During an interview with US Weekly, Val gave details on their parents’ first meeting.
The groom explained that neither of their parents had met before.
However, the moment they encountered each other, it was blissful, and it was without any troubles.
The happy couple also revealed that they are planning to have babies.
