by at . Comments

Longtime lovebirds Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have officially tied the knot. Congratulations to the couple on their wedding, which took place today!

The pair married on a tropical island in front of 35 friends and family.

"For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that's to start a family together," Minnillo said after the surprise affair.

She and Nick started dating in 2006 and became engaged last November, but no one knew when their wedding would be. Not even the guests!

"Nobody knew where they were going," Minnillo said. "Our wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket," Lachey added of the secret. "We told them they were going away and the attire was 'island chic.' It was all very vague."

Lachey and Minnillo's destination wedding will be televised on a TLC's special called Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding, premiering July 30.

It was the first marriage for Minnillo; Lachey was previously and famously married to Jessica Simpson, who he separated from in 2006.

Nice to hear some happy celebrity news in the wake of the surprising Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony split reported hours ago. Congrats again!
