From their honeymoon to their lives as husband and wife, these two were total #RelationshipGoals, but alas, the bliss didn't last. In May 2020, the pair announced that they were separating after three years of marriage. Laich and Hough tied the knot in July 2017 in Idaho after dating since 2014. In the fall of that year, Hough told ET that she was loving married life, saying, "I'm really excited. This is a different chapter. I'm 29, and I feel like I'm sort of coming into my own being married. I feel this maturity that has kind of just happened, and a peace and a direction that I want to go towards." We're taking a look back at the happier times during the couple's adventurous marriage.
And They're Off!
The newlyweds were so excited for their honeymoon that they snapped a pic of their passports, plane tickets and rings from the airport in July 2017.
Life's a Beach
"And so it begins..." Julianne captioned a photo of Brooks looking out at their stunning ocean view during their honeymoon.
Put a Ring On It

They're On a Boat!
Julianne captioned this seaworthy snap simply "#honeymoon" along with two dove emojis.
Now, this is how you spend a birthday! Julianne turned 29 in July 2017, and she celebrated by continuing to frolic on the beach with her hubby. She shared a pic of herself sans bikini top holding onto Brooks' hand, writing, "Birthday Girl in my Birthday Suit! #honeymoon #followmebabe."
Hats Off, Birthday Girl!
So sweet! Brooks penned a lovely message to his wife on her birthday, which they spent continuing their honeymoon in Seychelles. "Hats off to my beautiful wife @juleshough - wishing you the happiest of birthdays today!" he wrote on Instagram. "You are full of so much goodness and love, your joy is contagious, and I am so grateful that it's me you choose to spend your life with!

A Little Competition

The party included a little healthy competition, with Hough and Laich both on the blue team for various outdoor activities like boulder jumping, swimming, an egg relay race and a good old fashioned water balloon fight. "Love this crew, let's do it again!" Laich declared on Instagram.
