Charlie Sheen Married Brooke Mueller Friday In Los Angeles

Charlie Sheen married real estate investor Brooke Mueller at a private estate in Los Angeles on Friday, PEOPLE has confirmed. "They're well matched and incredibly happy," says a friend of the couple.

Brooke, 30, and Charlie, 42, exchanged vows in front of about 60 close friends and family. Among the guests were Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and actress Rebecca Gayheart, who first introduced the couple in 2006. "Brooke really wanted to walk down the aisle in a big way, but Charlie insisted they keep it simple and small," says a source.

The Two and a Half Men star proposed to Brooke in Costa Rica last June, presenting her with a $500,000 custom-designed 11-carat yellow diamond and platinum ring from jeweler Lord Alon Barak. The newlyweds are expected to attend the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles on Saturday, an event where they made their first public appearance as a couple two years ago.

In lieu of wedding gifts, the newlyweds have asked guests to donate to the Chrysalis: Changing Lives Through Jobs charity and to Pugs 'N Pals, a dog rescue charity. (God Bless a man who asks to donate to an animal rescue charity.)

As for their future, Charlie and Brooke are eager to start a family, according to an insider. "Brooke is hoping to get pregnant very soon," says the friend. Charlie is dad to three daughters already, Cassandra, 23, with ex-girlfriend Paula Profitt and Sam, 4, and Lola, 2, with ex-wife Denise Richards. And even though Denise and Charlie are not getting along Denise is making sure the girls are part of the wedding.

Denise says ex-husband Charlie can expect a wedding present from her – in their daughters' names. "[I'll send] something from the girls," Denise said on the Valentine in the Morning radio show Friday. Denise did not attend the wedding as once was rumored to happen, but the girls were there. "At the end of the day, he's their dad," she said of Sheen. "They have to understand that."
