Gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson wed NFL player Andrew East in Tennessee on Saturday. “I’ve found my guy,” Johnson, 24, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And he’s my best friend, so making it official is exciting.”

The special day was organized by Johnson with celebrity wedding planner Sara Fried of Fête Nashville.

Although the former Olympian – and Dancing with the Starschamp – admitted to a few pre-wedding jitters, the outdoor ceremony, held at a private farm in Franklin, was exactly as she hoped: “intimate and relaxed.”

Johnson and East, 24, a former player at Vanderbilt University who was recently signed by the Oakland Raiders, met about three years ago through East’s brother, a fellow athlete. The couple lives in Nashville.
