It’s tough and Maks has done it over and over again; long hours of practice, seven days a week, the pressure of pleasing the judges and the voters, having to come up with new choreography and teach it to stars with no dance experience. Like all the other coaches, Maks went through the motions of doing his job and he did it well, but it was never quite good enough.
Alums of the ABC reality show — including Amsale-clad bridesmaids Sharna Burgess and Rumer Willis, model Nyle Di Marco and Chmerkovskiy’s brother and best man Val — watched as the pair exchanged self-penned vows during the 40-minute non-denominational ceremony. Then, the nearly 300 guests entered the main ballroom, covered in white floral arrangements designed by Danitte Beegel from Metro Floral Decorators, to enjoy a five-course meal and 15-person band. When asked during a Good Morning America interview on Thursday, August 24, if he’s “ready” to compete against wife Peta Murgatroyd, Chmerkovskiy, 37, joked, “Who me? This is going to be a beautiful show, everybody’s going to be friends. I have a lot of stuff to deal with, so please, let’s just chill.pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have made it official.
The pair, who welcomed their first child, son Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy, in January, have finally gotten to share their first dance as a married couple, after tying the knot Saturday at historic Oheka Castle on Long Island, N.
