The couple tied the knot in front of a small group of about 80 family and friends at the indoor-outdoor Hamptons venue. The 45-minute ceremony took place at dusk, and a source tells ET that Avery broke down in tears after taking the podium to say a few words to his guests.

The 28-year-old model -- who wore an ivory Carolina Herrera column dress that featured an embroidered neckline, hint of a sparkling green underlay and grosgrain detailing -- was walked down the aisle by her father. The bride, who is the face of Chopard's Imperiale campaign, wore a pair of platinum 14.70-carat Chopard diamond earrings and swept up her hair in a sleek updo, complete with a cascading veil.

The newlyweds first met at a bar opened by Avery. They announced their engagement in November 2013 after dating on and off for three years.

The nuptials come almost two weeks after Avery, 35, was arrested for drug possession. Police say the one-time Vogue intern was throwing objects at passing cars and was in the possession of acetaminophen and oxycodone at the time of his arrest on Sept. 30.
