They're married! Elena of Avalor star Aimee Carrero married fiancé and longtime love Tim Rock this past weekend. The two tied the knot in Aspen, Colorado in a stunning outdoor ceremony.
Thank goodness for Instagram, where we caught a glimpse into the Disney star's big day, where Carrero, 28, shared photos from their fairytale wedding. In the photo, the newly married husband and wife are nose to nose in an embrace with the stunning backdrop of the forest, offset by the Rocky Mountains.

In her caption, the Young and Hungry actress wrote, "Day 1" with a red heart, signifying her first day of married bliss. The bride also shared a wedding gift that they received in the field near where they got married — several knives, a lighter, flashlight, feather, and some other trinkets. With it came a note, which Carrero shared in her caption.
"Blessings to you, A few gifts we bring to you from the mountain people for your journey. A flashlight to light the way in times of darkness. A feather for your dreams to take flight. A palo santo to burn when you need clarity and cleansing," said the letter that Carrero found along with the symbolic objects. A beautiful pendant to mirror your beauty. Knives as tools to give your fathers. And one to keep your wits sharp. A lighter to keep the passionate fire burning. Tape to mend disagreements. And a paper and pen to write your story. Breathe Deep Seek Peace Fly High All our love, The Rodkes." While initially a slightly alarming group of random artifacts, the note accompanying it was truly touching.
At the rehearsal dinner, which went down the night before the wedding, Carrero opted for a sleeker look, with her hair parted down the middle rocking a smokey eye and dark red lip. Her white one-shouldered top with black culottes created a sophisticated, elegant look which many brides opt for — rocking a different look — during their wedding weekend.
The bride and her groom, got engaged last November. Their wedding guest list included co-stars Jonathan Sadoski, Rex Lee, and Emily Osment — who were also present during the rehearsal dinner. On the big day, the beautiful bride wore a Naeem Khan lace wedding gown and flowing Cathedral-length veil, which created a beautiful effect during their wedding photos, which were captured by Colorado wedding photographer Rachel Havel and planned by Bluebird Productions.
It was a celebration with quite the quintessential Aspen backdrop, breathtaking enough to make any Colorado bride a bit envious. Congratulations on the beautiful affair, you two. See below for the rest of the sneak peeks from their big day!

I find it difficult to speak briefly about something so great. My heart is overwhelmed with gratefulness and joy to have been a part of the story of this sweet couple. When speaking of their love story, one of their friends compared it to having been able to see what happens in the movies, happening in real life that day. The amount of love and unity these two posses is inspiring and unreal. I feel so humbled to have witnessed such a sacred part of their lives unfold. To hear the sweetest of stories of who they were before this love of theirs forever shaped them into their best versions of themselves. Yes, A&T, it really was a dream. For you, and for everyone else who was so fortunate to be a part of your incredible day. I can't say enough about the most amazing team involved! @bluebirdproductions @premastyle @elysiumweddings @yonder_house @lutzkarpf @lizweg @hoteljeromecatering @janelemonade @coxmorgan @jstettner @christinemoree @bizziesteel @meganwphoto
