His brother and best man Val Chmerkovskiy and friend, maid-of-honor and wedding planner Nicole Volynets Gamer and her husband Ilya Gamer also flew there. Val’s girlfriend Jenna Johnson stayed behind in the U.S. as she is competing on So You Think You Can Dance All-Stars season 14.
Maks and Peta did, however, travel without their 7-month-old son Shai.
“Missing our little Shai – this is our first trip away just the two of us,” Peta wrote on Instagram Wednesday, alongside a photo of her walking up a flight of stone steps in the beautiful village of Bellagio in the Lake Como area.
“Lake Como with my love. ❤️ We were blown away by the beauty!” Peta wrote.
The group posted a slew of photos from their trip. Maks and Peta also included videos of them doing what many people do when they’re on vacation—peruse the vending machine selections for a midnight snack.
After a year-and-a-half-long engagement and six months after the birth of their child, Maks and Peta wed in July at Oheka Castle on Long Island, New York.
