Let it glow! Broadway superstar Idina Menzel married her Rent co-star Aaron Lohr this weekend in a ceremony at their California home.

The Frozen singer, 46, took to Twitter directly to share the news of her low-key nuptials. “Wanted to let you know… Married the love of my life #aaronlohr this weekend @ our home,” the bride revealed Monday, September 25. “Dad & son walked me down aisle. It was magical.”

Using Twitter as the medium of choice to break personal news is nothing new for Menzel, who did the same with her engagement. “What an incredible week,” Menzel expressed at the time, almost a year ago to-date. “Thank you to everyone for all your support with the album… As if this week couldn’t get any better I have wonderful news… my man and I are engaged! We are so happy. It’s a beautiful time.”

Lohr proposed to Menzel with a 2-carat ring designed by ethical jewelry company Brilliant Earth. Menzel’s vintage ring features an “ethically-sourced, beyond conflict-free” 2-carat diamond and is accented with baguette stones set on platinum.

The couple starred together in the film adaptation of Rent and have long remained friends. Their relationship turned romantic after Menzel separated from husband Taye Diggs in December 2013. In April 2015, Menzel and Lohr made their first public appearance together at the White House Correspondents’ dinner.
