Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong married her fiancé, attorney John Bluher, in a beachside ceremony at the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., on Friday, People reports.

The bride was escorted down the aisle by her 8-year-old daughter, Kennedy, in front of 120 guests including her RHOBH castmates Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Lisa Vanderpump.

“Today, John, Kennedy and I became a family,” Armstrong told People. “I married my best friend and Kennedy’s family circle became complete.”

Armstrong’s happy day follows a period of very public heartbreak. While filming the Bravo reality show, she separated from her first husband, Russell Armstrong, amid claims of domestic abuse. Russell committed suicide shortly after she filed for divorce in 2011.

Bluher, 56, became friends with Taylor, 42, when helping with legal issues following Russell’s death.

“I definitely believe the universe put John in my path for a reason,” Taylor said. “We were meant to be.”
