Olympic diver Greg Louganis is no stranger to gold medals, but now he is getting used to a wedding band.

Louganis, 53, married paralegal Johnny Chaillot, 52, Saturday evening at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.

“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.”

The recent Splash coach and Chaillot began dating in 2012 after finding each other on the online dating site Match.com and became engaged almost exactly a year later on April 8.

“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.”
