Spencer Pratt Breaks Silence About Wedding To Heidi Montag

Pratt also says marriage legalities will be taken care of when couple returns to the U.S.

Spencer Pratt is opening up about his wedding to longtime gal pal and fellow Hills star Heidi Montag. "We had a beautiful ceremony here at One & Only Palmilla officiated by a minister and photographed by the hotel photographer," he told UsMagazine.com and The Associated Press in a statement. "We've never been happier."

The wedding, which took place in Mexico, has had some in the media questioning the legality of their nuptials. But the groom insisted those will be taken care of in time: "Like other elopements that happen outside the country, we'll take care of the legal details when we get home."

Meanwhile, Neal Hersh, a Beverly Hills attorney, said that the marriage is legitimate if the couple took the necessary steps. "People can get married anywhere," he told the AP.

The reporter, Peter Grossman, who interviewed the Us Weekly, told the AP, "Heidi and Spencer are two people in love who had a beautiful wedding ceremony to celebrate that. The pictures and words in our issue this week bear that out."

Of course, MTV News announced exclusively earlier on Wednesday that the couple's [news id="1600271"]wedding will be featured in the next season of "The Hills."[/news]

[news id="1600179"]Montag's family[/news] and [news id="1600201"]fans[/news] have been quite vocal about their wedding, addressing their concerns for not being a part of the ceremony. Her sister, Holly, told MTV, "[Our mom] didn't know, either, what was going on, and we were frantically calling [Heidi]. Everybody's pretty upset."

Meanwhile their dad told People.com, "I would be upset if she got married and didn't invite me! Then we just have to have another wedding here!"

The couple's friends — and even [news id="1600237"]reality-TV alum Shanna Moakler[/news] — are also opening up about the wedding. Whitney Port, whose "Hills" spin-off "The City" is set to premiere next year, told "Extra," "I just heard it like everyone else yesterday. Congratulations to them. I think it's great if that's what they're ready to do. Good for them."
