Miss America 2005, Deidre Downs Gunn, an obstetrician-gynecologist in Alabama, married attorney Abbott Jones in front of 200 guests over the weekend.
The two women marked their Southern-themed wedding celebration using the hashtag "DrandMrsAmerica," according to People, which reported exclusively on the wedding.
The ceremony took place at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Downs Gunnís 8-year-old son gave away his mother and served as her best man.
Their wedding comes two years after Miss Missouri, Erin O'Flaherty, broke ground by becoming the first openly gay woman to compete in the Miss America pageant.
