Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge usually bares it all in her bikini-clad photoshoots, but when it comes to her personal life, she keeps it pretty low-key. Not that case, however, on the eve of her 5th anniversary when the supermodel shared an adorable Instagram throwback photo of her wedding to Caleb Followill.

The post (above) shows the newlyweds during their first dance as husband and wife (while they're in a tight liplock no less). Aldridge captioned the IG with a series of five heart emojis, since clearly nothing further needs to be said. Five years later, and they're still the cutest!

The big day went down in 2011 in an intimate, family-only ceremony (including Followill's Kings of Leon bandmates and real-life brothers, of course) at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, reported US Weekly. The Sports Illustrated model wore a custom-designed, strapless Vera Wang gown. Layers of chantilly and corded lace appliqué and raw edge swirling chiffon adorned the dress — sounds extravagant, but it looked stunning on her svelte physique. Her musically-inclined hubs wore a Gucci suit and light gold tie.
As far as the wedding-day scene, "Caleb and Lily had coffee and pastries and everyone sat around chatting. There was a relaxed vibe and everyone took their time eating and taking in the nice weather," a source shared. The lovebirds said their vows underneath a big tree with twinkle lights just before sunset. "Lily cried throughout the whole thing."
While the two seem to be totally meant for each other when it comes to their wedding style and chemistry, Followill shared a funny story with People about his bride's pre-wedding communication. "You have to ask Lily [about the wedding date]. She won't tell me. I think it's somewhere between May 10 and May 20, but she won't tell me because I have a big mouth." How's that for keeping your groom in the dark!
The couple's first child, Dixie Pearl Followill, was born in June of 2012, and according to the model, she's quite the talker, just like her pops. "She talks all day — she loves talking and saying 'Hi' to everyone. She's so social," she shared.
It's clear these two are a match made in heaven — and if keeping mostly mum about your relationship is Aldridge's MO, keep it up girl, because it's working. Congrats on 5 years of wedded bliss!
