R&B singer Ameriie only had "1 Thing" important to say this weekend – I do.
The Grammy-nominated recording artist
, 30, married former Columbia Records executive Lenny Nicholson on Saturday on Anguilla in the British West Indies.
"This is such an exciting time for me. This is my first marriage and I am over the moon," Ameriie told PEOPLE. "I look forward to a loving and enduring marriage. This day couldn't come any sooner for me. I am beyond thrilled. I will remember this day forever."
Though it may have been an island wedding, the bride didn't opt for a simple white sheath and bare feet, instead wowing the guests in a Monique Lhullier gown complete with a dramatic cathedral train, baby blue Yves Saint Laurent Tribute sandals and jewelry by Rafaello & Co.
Her hair was styled into an edgy up-do, decorated with strings of diamonds and pearls. The groom wore a Hugo Boss tuxedo.
With the bride's pastor, Reverend Phillip E. Knight, Sr. officiating at the ceremony, the couple held their wedding, reception and associated events at the luxury resort Viceroy Anguilla.
Platinum Wedding planner Tiffany Nieves-Cook created an opulent romantic setting for the "Platinum Style" wedding, while Washington, D.C., florist Janet Flowers was responsible for the floral arrangements.
The reception featured music spun by DJ Konflikt and a sea foam green seven-tier cake by pastry chef Yannis Janssens of Yann Chocolates. Every tier of the cake was a different flavor, and the couple had three cake tastings to make sure it would be perfect.
The newlyweds are honeymooning at the resort’s 5,000 sq.-ft. Romance Villa, complete with its own private beach.
