Troian Bellisario's wedding to Patrick J. Adams looked like a dream come true this past weekend, but it left fans of the two actors wondering, what was the meaning of their wedding hashtag "fort day"?

Well, thankfully, the Pretty Little Liars star opened up about the hidden meaning behind the hashtag on Instagram today and gave fans some insight into their relationship backstory. A dreamy backstory at that!

"8 years ago we were two friends who had shared very little time together. We were tired and overworked and just wanted to have some peace and quiet. So he invited me over to his apartment where he had built us a pillow fort. He stapled sheets and Christmas lights to the ceiling. We shut the door to the world outside. We didn't answer our phones. And over pancakes and movies. Long late night conversations and sleep, we got to know each other a little better. That was the first fort day."

She continued, "Each year after that our fort got a little bigger until 3 years ago our fort was a brand new home. Our first that we bought together. And in the still and the quiet of that "fort day" he asked me to marry him." OK, cue the swoons!

The newlywed ended her lengthy message to her fans by writing the following sweet note to her husband:

"Any of the tough times we've had making 8 years of long distance work was worth it. The pining. The missing. The quiet nights alone believing that it would be worth it. We were right to believe in us. And not only did we believe @halfadams but everyone around us did too."
