Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are officially husband and wife.

The longtime couple wed Friday evening in a small tropical island ceremony, in front of 35 guests, E! News has confirmed.

And it was a location that was a surprise to family and friends...

"Nobody knew where they were going," Minnillo told People, which first reported the nuptials.

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

While details of the couple's nuptials are still being kept under wraps (even the exact location wasn't revealed), we do know the 30-year-old former MTV VJ wore a two-piece Monique Lhuillier ensemble down the aisle, while her hubby donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit.

Lachey and Minnillo, who became engaged last November, have been dating since 2006.

If you weren't one of the lucky handful of guests on hand, don't fret. The newlyweds' wedding will be the subject of a TLC special on July 30.
