The newlyweds tell People magazine, "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."

Justin, 31, and Jessica, 30, had kept their wedding plans top secret. But it became clear that the big day was imminent after Justin enjoyed a double-destination bachelor party last month in Las Vegas and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The couple got engaged in December 2011 following a brief break in their four-year relationship.

When asked in the past about her wedding plans, Jessica said they wanted to keep the event simple. "It's not going to be a great big to-do," she told InStyle magazine. "This will be a very private moment for us, so we're going to keep it small and intimate."

She also revealed to InStyle that the couple was committed to making sure they spend enough quality time together despite their busy career schedules. "The best thing I learned from [my parents] is that you have to put your relationship first. You need to make time for your partner. It's really easy to let that go by the wayside. It's easy to say, 'Hey, I'll see you later. I love you.' And you can't do that," she said.
