Present for the nuptials were Young's costars from the hit Netflix series Selling Sunset, as well as El Moussa's two children, Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, whom he shares with his ex-wife and former Flip or Flop co-star, Christina Haack

On his Instagram page, El Moussa posted romantic photos of the couple as they were about to have their first kiss as husband and wife at the altar.

If you had asked me four years ago I would’ve told you I was never getting married again and honestly I didn’t even think I would find love," El Moussa captioned a photo of the couple kissing on the big wedding weekend. "Then one day Heather jumped onto my boat, looked at me, smiled and the rest is history. Thank God for that day. My life is so much better with you in it… now let’s do this thing!!"
