It’s pretty customary for most men to take a back seat when it comes to wedding planning. But Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean has admitted to being a very involved “groomzilla.”
“I’m hands-on,” he told PEOPLE in April about planning his goth-themed evening ceremony, which took place under a clear tent on the Crystal Lawn on Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
McLean, 33, and bride Rochelle DeAnna Karidis exchanged vows under a gazebo adorned with white hydrangeas, while guests were surrounded by warm elements like romantic chandeliers.
