Congratulations are in order for Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young!

The "Flip or Flop" host, 40, and "Selling Sunset" realtor, 34, tied the knot Saturday night at a hotel near Santa Barbara, the couple confirmed on Instagram. Young wore a custom corset dress designed by Galia Lahav, while El Moussa opted for a black velvet tux, according to a People interview published Saturday.

"We're best friends, we're true soulmates, and our love is so rare and so special," Young told the magazine. "It's the love I've always dreamed of my whole life."

"I'm just excited to live this life with her," El Moussa added. "We've got the two babies, we have a family, and we have a very bright future."

The two also shared their sweet wedding photos on Instagram.

"MR. AND MRS. EL MOUSSA!!! I married the love of my life today. My sweet man, my everything. Cheers to forever and then some," Young wrote on Instagram Saturday alongside photos of the two.

El Moussa shared the same picture, writing, "WE'RE MARRIED!!!! Flipped her name for good."

The reality stars began dating in 2016 but went Instagram official three years later. In July 2020, El Moussa announced that he and Young got engaged during a surprise one-year anniversary celebration on California's Catalina Island.

"She said yes!" El Moussa wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of him placing the eight carat emerald-cut diamond ring on Young's finger, with the hashtag #FlippingHerLastName.

Young showed off the same photo on Instagram, confirming the happy news and the name change. "The Future Mrs. Tarek El Moussa!!!!" she wrote at the time.

This is Young's first marriage and the second for El Moussa, who was previously married to HGTV star Christina Haack before splitting in 2016. El Moussa shares two children with Haack: daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6.
