Chris Evert and Greg Norman were married on Saturday in a sunset ceremony in the Bahamas, the couple confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively.

The tennis and golf legends, both 53, exchanged vows in front of 140 family and friends, including Matt Lauer and singer-songwriter Corey Hart.

"They wanted a romantic wedding," says event planner Mary Fanizzi Krystoff, who decorated the outdoor ceremony and reception areas with cream and blush florals. "They wanted their friends and family to enjoy a wonderful weekend together."

Evert's youngest son Colton, 12, served as ring bearer, and sons Nicky, 14, and Alex, 16, walked her down the aisle. Also present were Norman's daughter Morgan, 23, and son Gregory Jr., 21, who served as best man.

The bride wore a wedding gown by Carolina Herrera. The groom's suit was by Ermenegildo Zegna.

The wedding weekend kicked off on Friday with a golf and tennis tournament. Wines from Greg Norman Estates were served at both the Friday rehearsal dinner and Saturday's reception.

Evert and Norman got engaged on Dec. 9 while traveling in South Africa. This is the second marriage for him and the third for her.
