Durst and Julian tied the knot in front of approximately 115 guests, including former small-screen costars Erica Rose, Ella Nolan, Justin Rego and West Lee.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Durst tells PEOPLE. “Blake is my best friend and now my husband. I have a beautiful future ahead of me with this man. I love him with all my heart!”
The Ohio-bred children’s author said “I do” to Julian at The Cliffs country club in South Carolina.
Walking down the aisle in an Alfred Angelo wedding gown, Durst had her big day planned by Lindsay Pitt of Toast events in Atlanta.
“I’m really excited and really happy about the rest of my life,” the newlywed – whose engagement news became known in Sept. 2011 – told PEOPLE in March. “I can’t wait for that to begin. I’m not nervous at all.”
