While friends suspected Pobre was “The One” and the couple’s moms were already talking grandkids, it wasn t until they were en route to Punta Mita, Mexico, for a joint family vacation last week that the couple confessed – they were getting married in just a few days!
Everyone was screaming and hugging and over the moon, Keibler, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively about breaking the good news to their parents and immediate family on the plane to Mexico.
Once settled in at the Palmasola luxury villa in Punta Mita, the small group shared “an absolutely magical time,” says Keibler, who met Pobre, 39, a tech entrepreneur, five years ago, but whom she didn’t start dating until last fall.
“We felt we wanted to put our money, energy and time into our intimate family and [share] this really special bond, special moment and special memory just with them. There’s just so much love,” Keibler says.
On Saturday, the couple married on the beach at sunset as guests cried tears of joy.
It was such a celebration of love with the whole family, better than I could have ever dreamed of,” says the TV host and actress, who wore a custom-made dress by Monique Lhuillier. “We can’t stop smiling.”
Neither can their moms.
“The first time I met Stacy and saw the interaction between my son and her, I knew they were perfect for one another,” Pobre’s mother Gladys Lowenstein tells PEOPLE.
“The energy and love they have for each other is amazing. Our family has embraced Stacy and her parents. I feel very lucky to have her as a daughter-in-law.”
The bride’s mother, Pat Keibler, echoes this sentiment.
“As a parent all you want for your child is to be happy. We see such joy and happiness in both Stacy and Jared’s eyes when they are together. There is a true sense of harmony and love in the energy they share,” she says.
“We are excited to welcome Jared and his family into ours. We wish them much happiness, love and laughter.”
