Sir Elton John and David Furnish's sweet wedding pics have us feeling the love tonight

Sir Elton John wed his longtime love David Furnish on Sunday, converting the couple's nine-year civil partnership into an official marriage.

We once imagined the wedding of the man who brought us "Bennie and the Jets" and "Tiny Dancer" might be a fabulously extravagant affair a little exactly like Stanford and Anthony's nuptials in Sex and the City 2.

But, in fact, John and Furnish opted for a far more intimate affair to honor their love and, naturally, their sons Zachary, 3, and Elijah, 23 months, were a big part of the big day.

Judging from the pics John posted on Instagram, the low-key ceremony — which took place at their Windsor home, just outside of London — couldn't have been more perfect for the pair of 21 years.

Just check out these 10 special moments and join us in feeling the love tonight.

1. You are cordially invited

While the couple didn't give the world carte blanche to crash the ceremony, John did formally invite fans to #sharethelove as he posted special moments on the big day.

2. Precious shoes to fill

John's excitement about his upcoming nuptials was evident on his wedding eve, as he shared a photo of his sons' shoes polished and ready to walk down the aisle for ring bearer duties.

3. The countdown is on

Good morning! Nice day for a wedding. #ShareTheLove

Peeking out into the courtyard gardens, John observes it's a nice day to get hitched — his good morning has just begun.

That's the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony! #ShareTheLove @DavidFurnish

John and Furnish smiled as they took care of the classic wedding-day rite of passage known as "signing the marriage license."

5. We are gathered here today...

It's beginning!! The Registrar welcomes our guests. #ShareTheLove

As the Registrar begins the ceremony, John's anticipation reaches a fever pitch (made evident by his use of an additional exclamation point... sometimes it just takes two).

6. Oh, my sweetness

Just when we thought this adorable picture of little Elijah hugging his dads as they said their vows couldn't get any cuter, John told us big brother Zachary took it. Say it with us: "Awwwww!"

7. They definitely do

The exchange of vows. #ShareTheLove

All we see is love. So much love.

8. Roses are red

The tablescapes at the couple's reception were the picture of elegance, thanks to dramatic red rose centerpieces. Plus, we love the romantic sentiment for the couple behind these flowers.

9. Table for two... newlyweds

And the tables are set for a delicious lunch. #ShareTheLove

There must be something so wholly gratifying and heartwarming for John and Furnish about seeing place cards with their names on them as husbands, for the first time.

10. And they lived happily ever after

With so many people eager to wish them a lifetime of happiness, John and Furnish seem destined for a fairytale marriage. Congrats to the happy couple!
