“Magic hour ✨🏝,” El Moussa captioned one snap of the couple sharing a kiss in front of the sunset at a Bora Bora resort.
To successfully pull off their hush-hush “I dos,” the pair asked 70 of their closest friends and family members to meet at their house, where a charter bus would then transport the group to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.
Instead, guests walked into a wedding. Under an altar in their front yard, the couple exchanged vows with their children close by. (El Moussa shares daughter Taylor, 8, and son Brayden, 3, with ex-husband Tarek, and Anstead has daughter Amelie, 15, and son Archie, 12, from a previous marriage.)
“We wanted to make it about the kids,” Anstead told PEOPLE about the December wedding. “It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”
“It was just perfect for us,” El Moussa added. “Everything we wanted.”
