The couple is yet to announce their union publicly, but family and friends took to Instagram to capture the destination nuptials. The couple used the hashtag “#homeiswheretheherdis,” to play off the groom’s surname. The bride wore a breathtaking Oscar De La Renta gown for the wedding ceremony and a silky, cream-colored slip dress for the reception and evening party. The reception venue was covered by canopies of lemon trees, which complemented the lemon accents on the menus and dinner tables. The cake was a massive single-tier topped with other fruits like fresh strawberries.
