In May they held a ‘love ceremony’ instead of a traditional wedding.

There is a beach that he and I are very connected to, where we surfed independently many times before we met and then surfed together on an early date,” he said. “We fell in love with surfing there and did a love blessing ceremony with water that we collected from that beach.”

They then headed to their property in Southern California.

“It was spontaneous with some friends,” she told People. ‘We didn’t know who would end up there, but we had a handful of friends and a friend who believes in water magic gave us a water blessing. It was beautiful.’
