Josh Duhamel apparently said the words “I do” to his fiancée, Audra Mari, earlier Saturday in his home state of North Dakota, TMZ reported.
The Transformers alum, 49, and former beauty pageant contestant, 28, is said to have married in a scenic rooftop ceremony at a location known as the Jasper Hotel in a town called Fargo, informed a source.
After their intimate nuptials, the newlyweds appeared to have stopped at a bar called Duffy’s Tavern, to ring in the celebrations with a few gunshots. The bar uploaded photos of the bride and groom in tuxedos and full wedding dresses on its own Facebook page.

Chris Litton, the owner of Duffy’s, told TMZ that when Josh and Audra stopped by with a few others, the affair seemed “relaxed” and stress-free.
The two photos the tavern shared on its Facebook page showed the newlyweds standing side by side with big smiles on their faces, while kicking off their nuptials with a few drinks.
A second photo showed the cheerful couple sitting in the back of a red convertible as they headed to their next destination.
According to the publication, it’s unclear if Josh and Audra were stopping at multiple bars to celebrate or had a special reception planned.
