"First and foremost, we would like to express the overwhelming joy, love and excitement we have in beginning our life together. We decided to keep everything as intimate as possible because of private matters," Guidicelli added.

Guidicelli also addressed in the post the allegations of Geronimo's bodyguard that the actor punched him on the throat after accusing him of informing Geronimo's mother, Divine, about the wedding.

"That evening was almost perfect until some unexpected events took place; don’t worry I never 'punched' anyone. I will forever stand up and protect my wife just as how my father would protect my whole family," he said.

He also thanked their fans for being part of their "love journey."

"Friends, family and everyone on 'social media' have been a source of inspiration, strength, and most importantly, of LOVE," he said.

Guidicelli believes that one day, with God's grace and love, everything will "heal and fall into place."

"We are happy, we are blessed, and we are husband and wife! Let’s always celebrate life and love! Nothing will ever defeat pure honest LOVE. God bless everyone for your love and support!" he said.
