(Newser) – Elizabeth Smart quietly exchanged vows with her boyfriend of a year yesterday afternoon in Hawaii, reports People. Smart, 24, and her 22-year-old Scottish beau, Matthew Gilmour, were originally supposed to marry this summer, but changed the time and place amid media attention, a spokesman said. "To be in one of her favorite places with her family has made for a dream wedding. It's been an absolutely beautiful day," says the spokesman. "She is positively radiant. And Matthew couldn’t be happier." The couple met while doing Mormon mission work in Paris.
