Jaleel White is married!

The Family Matters alum and author, 47, — whose new book 'Growing Up Urkel' comes out Nov. 19 — said "I do" to tech executive Nicoletta Ruhl at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles on May 4.

"It was important for all of the people that carry an impact on our daily lives to be present and for each and every one of them to enjoy themselves and feel as though they were part of something intimate and meaningful," Ruhl tells PEOPLE of the couple's 175-guest celebration.

The festivities featured neutral decor and included "5 star food" and plenty of good music. "We had three DJs throughout different parts of the wedding and each were phenomenal," says White. But the bride and groom's biggest priority on their special day was making sure they had "enough time to spend with the people who have had a positive impact on our lives and continue to support us daily."

After exchanging vows, (this is White's first marriage) Ruhl and the actor, who is dad to 14-year-old daughter Samaya, celebrated with their guests including Omar Miller, Lamorne Morris, Adam Ray, Hannah Stocking, Mekhi Phifer, Alyson Felix, Camilla Belle and Sina Sadighi over a dinner of filet mignon and branzino with vegetables.

The pair then surprised the crowd with an outfit change and a choreographed dance to "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye.

White and Ruhl —who swam at Yale as an undergrad and received her business degree from Stanford Graduate School of Business —first met during the pandemic when they both worked out at UCLA's track.

The sports technology business executive debuted their relationship on Instagram on New Year's Day in 2022, sharing photos of the pair cuddled up together as they celebrated the holiday. "New year, same peeps 🎈," she captioned the post.

In June of that same year, the two stepped out together publicly to attend the premiere of White's movie Hustle where they were joined by the actor's daughter.

For the newlyweds, marriage means that "we've each committed ourselves to loving and helping one another achieve the best possible outcome in anything we set out to do both personally and professionally," says White.

Adds Ruhl: "We don't rush anything and we always have honest intentions for one another. We both fully believe that when you force something, it won't result in the best outcome and because of this we've seen a lot of blessings in our life together thus far."

Reflecting back on the couple's big day, the actor says it couldn't have turned out more perfect. "I felt like a prince."
