All the Photos from Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich's Romantic Globe-Trotting Honeymoon
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich's Perfect Score
Off to the Other Side of the World
The main event? Their honeymoon of course! The new Mr. and Mrs. jetted off to a secluded island paradise in the Indian Ocean, Hough revealed, followed by a safari in Kenya.
The couple documented their overseas adventure start to finish on Instagram, sharing unreal portraits that show off the beautiful beach and of course their flawless tans.
Starting Off on the Right Foot
"And so it begins..." Hough captioned a snap of her hubs arriving at their gorgeous destination.
Laich agrees: "Yeah, this is going to be fun..." he captioned a gallery of snapshots, including this magic hour perfection.
But their social media streams aren't just flooded with gorgeous landscapes and insane abs, the couple also been sharing sweet messages of love: "I see you Mrs. Laich!" Laich captioned this artsy photo framed by his new wedding band.
The stylish duo are trendsetting even when they're not wearing much. Hough sported a retro green gingham bikini, while Laich introduced a new accessory: the beach bowler.
When You Dip
And what better way for the Dancing with the Stars judge and her partner to show off their strong headwear game than with a dramatic dip in the ocean?
Did we mention the abs? The super-toned dancer was the fittest bride.
One part of her routine she's happily given up for the trip? Full glam makeup: "#sidepony #nomakeup #lovinglife," Hough hashtagged this au natural selfie.
The Wife Workout
Laich was certainly working on his fitness while on vacation. He hashtagged this one #barbelljules.
Strike a Pose
He wrote on his trio of workout shots, "Fitness should never be a chore, if it is you are doing it wrong."
No Bad Days
Laich added, "It should be something you look forward to as a part of your day......even on your honeymoon!"
It doesn't hurt to be able to sweat it out in a postcard-perfect setting with a stunning lady at your side (or on your back).
On the High Seas
Between workouts the couple got down to some enviable activities, including going for a private boat ride...
... and swaying in a hammock steps from the turquoise sea.
Hough celebrated her 29th birthday on the trip and donned the day's most appropriate look: "birthday girl in my birthday suit,"she captioned her photo.
A Heartfelt Message
"To be able to celebrate my birthday in the honeymoon bubble of love has been incredible, and you all are the most thoughtful people in the world to come up with posts and collages that I know take time," Hough wrote to fans in an Instagram post. "You will never know how much it means to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
Ain't No Ocean Wide Enough
Hough's best friend Kristy Sowin managed to arrange a cake, champagne, and flowers to arrive on the big day. "It wouldn't be my birthday without my bff and #wife surprising me," she wrote.
One guess who Laich's #wcw was this week: "How about this doll.....eat your heart out Wendy Peffercorn......" he captioned this artsy pool pic, making reference to the star of 1993's The Sandlot.
So Long, Paradise
Though their island time had to come to an end, the couple didn't head home, but to spread the love on another continent. "Part 1 of honeymoon: Relaxation. Part 2 of honeymoon: Adventure here we come......" Hough captioned her goodbye Instagram.
Into the Wild
The DWTS judge gave a hint at the couple's second destination, sharing a photo beside a safari vehicle with globe, tent and elephant emojis.
The pair looked ready for the cover of a travel guide in Laich's dispatch from the Maasai Mara game reserve in Kenya.
Up a Tree
"Jambo savannah, it's gonna be a great day!" Hough captioned this photo of her communing with nature.
Hough's outfits were clearly channeling Meryl Streep in Out of Africa.
Breakfast with a View
The pair didn't waste any potential wildlife time with meals at the lodge. "Breakfast on the savannah," Laich wrote on this stunning capture.
Up in the Air
The best way to see the gorgeous African landscape: from the basket of a hot air balloon, of course. "My only form of transportation from here on out guys..." Hough wrote.
Catching some Zzz
Keep an eye out for lions! "On a trek in the Savannah, sometimes you need a quick 5...... @juleshough you got me right?" Laich captions this photo.
Into the Wild
"If you ever want to be truly humbled, put yourself in an environment where you aren't at the top of the food chain," Laich writes of his immersive experience. "You'll quickly realize the fragility of life, and that we humans do not have sole ownership of this planet as we so often think and act like we do."
Communing with Nature
After so many days of indulgence, the superfit Hough says she's feeling like a #strongbeautifulfemale...hippo. "Going in to the honeymoon I was feeling pretty dang fit Coming off of the honeymoon, I may be more in line with this guy!"
Drinks on Them
The couple have also been indulging in some cocktails and introducing their favorite sippers to some new friends. "Sammy our guide had never heard of a hot toddy so I said I would make him one if he wanted. When we got back I kept my promise." All sorts of dance-y hijinks ensued.
Out of Africa
It's safe to say the newlyweds won't soon be forgetting their adventure!
