Talk about a day in paradise.

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey were married Friday evening in a tropical island ceremony in front of just 35 friends and family, their reps confirm exclusively to PEOPLE.

"For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that’s to start a family together," Minnillo tells PEOPLE.

The pair, who became engaged in November, flew their wedding guests to the secret location as a surprise.





"Nobody knew where they were going," says Minnillo, 30.

Adds Lachey, "Our wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket. We told them they were going away and the attire was ‘island chic.’ It was all very vague."

Minnillo, the new host of Wipeout, donned a two-piece Monique Lhuillier ensemble featuring an intricately embellished lace corset with rose and crystal detail, paired with a signature hand tufted skirt made of silk faille.

The look was completed with a tailored bow belt at her waist and chapel length tulle veil.

Lachey, 37, who hosts The Sing-Off, sported a Dolce & Gabanna suit.

Their wedding will be televised on a TLC's special called Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding premiering on July 30 from 9-11pm ET/PT.
