Leighton Meester and Adam Brody successfully shocked many fans on Tuesday when news broke that the notoriously private pair wed in a super-secret ceremony, and now we have exclusive details on the twosome's I-dos.

"Leighton and Adam got married in Northern California by the ocean a couple of weeks ago," a source exclusively tells E! News. "It was a very small and intimate wedding with close family and friends. It was beautiful."

The twosome were apparently able to keep fans—and paps—and off of their trail by venturing away from L.A. and staying off social media, not to mention the pair have been hush-hush about their romance since the beginning.

The TV stars were later seen relaxing at Mexico's St. Regis Punta Mita Resort from Feb. 12 to 15, and while the hotel wouldn't comment on the couple, it certainly looks like a nice place to honeymoon.


The 27-year-old Gossip Girl star and the 34-year-old O.C. actor got engaged in November, just nine months after it was first revealed that they were an item. The famously private duo, who met on the set of 2011's The Oranges, have never officially confirmed they were a couple, nor did they confirm their engagement.

Since tying the knot, Brody has been seen leaving a boxing gym in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where the former O.C. stud flashed his newest accessory: his gold wedding band. 

Meanwhile, Meester and a few of her fellow castmembers from Of Mice and Men, including Chris O'Dowd, attended a comedy show at The Second City in Chicago last night sans her hot new hubby.

The former Gossip Girl star has also been tweeting about her own Broadway play, sharing a photo of the script while writing, "So grateful. So excited. Who's comin! Previews start March 19, opening night is April 16:) www.ofmiceandmenonbroadway.com #MiceAndMenBway."

This is the first marriage for both celebs. Meester previously dated actors Sebastian Stan and Aaron Himelstein, while Brody was linked to director Lorene Scafaria and dated his O.C. costar Rachel Bilson.

The newlyweds are both slated to star in the comedy Life Partners, which is set for release in 2014.
