Soccer star Landon Donovan married actress Bianca Kajlich on New Year's Eve at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, Calif., their rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The bride, 29, who stars in the upcoming CBS comedy Rules of Engagement, was decked out in a Monique Lhuillier dress, while the groom, 24, wore a custom-made Ted Baker tuxedo.

After the bride and groom toasted the New Year with their guests, they surprised everyone with In-N-Out Burgers – and a karaoke machine for their after-party.

"Words couldn't possibly do the night justice," Kajlich tells PEOPLE. "It really is best remembered in our hearts."

Donovan, who was on the U.S. World Cup teams in 2002 and 2006, currently plays for the L.A. Galaxy. Kajlich has appeared on TV shows including Dawson's Creek and Boston Public.
