He's got talent – and now a new bride.

Terry Fator, 45, who won the second season of America's Got Talent and stars in his own Las Vegas show, married his girlfriend Taylor Makakoa, 21, PEOPLE has learned.

They wed Wednesday afternoon at Las Vegas's Lily Of The Valley Chapel before their families. Makakoa, a model and actress, also stars as Fator's stagehand in his Las Vegas show at The Mirage.

"We are so happy and looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together," the couple say in a statement.

In 2007, Fator wowed judges with his ventriloquism. Following the show, Simon Cowell appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show with Fator, and the judge dubbed Fator "one of the most talented people on the planet."
