Jennie Garth's new husband promised to love her children forever in his marriage vows.

The 43-year-old actress tied the knot with Dave Andrews, 34, her boyfriend of eight months, last weekend and Dave spoke about his bond with her daughters during the ceremony.

Luca, 18, Lola, 12, and Fiona, eight, Jennie's children with ex-husband Peter Facinelli, acted as bridesmaids and Dave told them: ''I vow to protect you, care for you and love you forever.''

He told PEOPLE magazine: ''I fell in love with her girls. It's not about me anymore. Jennie puts the kids first in everything, and I fell in love with her because of that. I've always wanted kids.''

'Beverly Hills 90210' actress Jennie revealed that she introduced Dave to her daughters just after their first date.

She said: ''It was a big decision on my part, but I said, ''I really like this guy and he really likes me and if we think we have a future together, I need to introduce him to my life as soon as possible.' I threw him in 100 per cent and he fit in without missing a beat.''

The couple tied the knot in a ''warm and rustic'' ceremony in front of 120 guests at her six-acre ranch in Los Olivos, California.

Jennie made most of the decorations, including lanterns and hand-painted signs, for the outdoor celebration herself so she didn't have much time to pamper herself before walking down the aisle.

But reflecting on their special day, she said: ''It was unreal. It was perfect.''
