Witney Carson Married On New Year’s Day
Witney Carson is married! The “Dancing with the Stars” winner wed Carson McAllister on New Year’s Day!
Carson had been teasing the nuptials on Instagram recently, sharing photos from the preparations, including a shot she and McAllister took with their marriage license. On Friday morning, the dancer tweeted, “Happy New Years!!!!!!! Today is the day I can’t believe it!!!!!” She went on to write on Instagram, “Can’t believe today is the day!!! Finally get to be with my love forever and all eternity. Can’t wait to share with all of you the details.”
With family and friends gathered in Utah on Friday, the couple first had a religious ceremony where “Dancing with the Stars” colleague Lindsay Arnold served as maid of honor, and co-stars Emma Slater and Jenna Johnson were also part of the wedding party. A dinner and reception followed. In attendance were “DWTS” pro Kym Johnson and her boyfriend (and former partner) Robert Herjavec, as well as Carson’s previous partners, Alfonso Ribeiro, Chris Soules, and Carlos Pena Vega, who brought wife Alexa.
As Gossip Cop reported, Carson announced her engagement to McAllister in early October after four years of dating. “I feel like the luckiest, happiest woman in the world,” the “DWTS” pro said at the time. The proposal came about halfway through season 21 of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Carson was partnered with Carlos PenaVega, who was competing against Alexa. He and Carson finished in fourth place in December, just behind Arnold and Alek Skarlatos. Carson, of course, won the whole competition during season 19 in 2014 with Ribeiro.
It’s not yet known if Carson will be returning for season 22 in March, but it’s likely. Regardless, 2016 seems to be getting off to a perfect start. Gossip Cop wishes the star and McAllister many congrats!
