“My happiness is indescribable!” Keibler, 34, tells PEOPLE. “Marriage is the ultimate bond of love and friendship. It means putting all your faith and trust into a person that you can’t help but believe is your soul mate. Someone who has all of your best interests at heart; someone handpicked for you, to help you grow and be the best person that you can be. Jared is all of this for me.”
Although the small wedding was a joyful surprise for family members vacationing with the couple, Keibler and Pobre have been quietly planning the low-key celebration for several months.
“We both felt strongly that our ‘love day’ should be intimately special, and that’s exactly what it was,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “It was a blend of romance, tranquility, natural beauty, bonding and overwhelming love.”
An Orange County native, Pobre is the CEO of Future Ads, a private interactive firm he started in 2001. By 2009, it was one of the fastest-growing interactive companies in the country.
This is the first marriage for both.
