Nick Lachey weds Vanessa Minnillo in intimate ceremony

Jessica Simpson‘s ex-husband Nick Lachey married MTV presenter Vanessa Minnillo on Friday.

The couple flew all 35 of their guests to a mystery tropical island location.

‘For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that’s to start a family together,’ Vanessa, 30, tells People.

Nick, who hosts The Sing-Off in America, announced the couple’s engagement on Twitter in November.

‘Hey all, if anyone’s heard the rumors of my engagement, they are

absolutely true!’
Nick, 37, wrote.

Vanessa and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for all the

love.’
