Olympic diver Greg Louganis married his paralegal boyfriend Johnny Chaillot Saturday at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.

The two tied the knot in front of 160 friends and family at sunset.

“It was amazing because I have so many people from all facets of my life here tonight and they are all here and celebrating it is all wonderful,” Louganis told PEOPLE immediately following the sunset ceremony. “I already feel different. The ceremony was so reflective and representative of who we are.”

Recent The Voice contestant Dominic Scott Kay entertained guests with musical performances after the ceremony including Barbara Eden, French Stewart, Bruce Vilanch, and fellow Olympians Janet Evans and Nadia Comaneci. Guests enjoyed baby greens salad, grilled Angus filet mignon, Chilean sea bass, and more.

The Splash coach met Chaillot online in 2012 and got engaged nearly a year later.

“It has been an incredible journey,” Louganis said in an interview Thursday of his relationship with Chaillot. “I feel like we’ve been through a lifetime in a very short time.”

Instead of asking for wedding gifts, the couple asked their guests to donate to charity.

“We are both in our mid-50s and don’t need another blender so we really wanted to give back,” Chaillot said of asking their guests to donate to the Human Rights Campaign and Mending Kids International.

Even with all the guests and chaos that goes into a wedding, the two made sure to keep their love as the main focus of the day.

“Wednesday night I talked to Greg and I said, ‘When you look at me on Saturday I want you to know this is what I think about’ and he told me what he is going to be thinking when he looks at me,” Chaillot said. “So it is our little secret moment – our time.”
