Next stop: wedded bliss!

After marrying in a romantic, outdoor wedding in Idaho last week, Julianne Hough and NHL star Brooks Laich headed out on their first adventure as man and wife — their honeymoon.

Laich, 34, started the envy-inducing photos on Instagram with a snap of the newlyweds clutching their passports — and showing off their new accessories — at the airport.

The Dancing with the Stars judge, 28, reposted the image, captioning it, “We gone.”

It wasn’t long before the couple started sharing photos on a tropical beach with crystal clear water. Laich captured Hough posing in a bikini at the water’s edge with an artsy touch — through his wedding ring.

“I see you Mrs Laich!” he wrote, adding the hashtag #honeymoon.

Hough also couldn’t resist sharing a photo of her new spouse, posting a scenic shot of her husband walking down the beach with towels in hand.

She captioned the pic, “And so it begins…”

Laich took advantage of the picturesque landscape (and his new built-in photographer) with a mini-photo shoot posed on some rocks. The shirtless athlete excitedly raises his hands in the air.

“Yeah, this is going to be fun…..” he wrote, giving photo credit to his wife.

The dancing queen posted some selfies to document their honeymoon from brunch, including a cute kissing pic.

The duo also relaxed in hammocks overlooking the water, with Hough showing off her abs as she took in the sights on a swing hanging from a tree.

“That view though……we might never leave,” Laich captioned the image.

Yeah, this is going to be fun.....#honeymoon ????: @juleshough

The couple said their vows in front of more than 200 guests including family and close friends near Coeur d’Alene, where Hough spent her summer holidays growing up.

“I don’t think I ever really necessarily dreamed about my wedding as a kid,” Hough told PEOPLE exclusively. “But I know I will always cherish and remember it for the rest of my life.”

For the ceremony on Saturday evening, Hough wore a Custom Marchesa gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and was given away by her father, Bruce. Laich wore a Brooks Brothers tuxedo.

Best moment of my life! ???????????????? Has it already been a week?! #mrslaich ????????

Guests sat on wooden pews for the outdoor ceremony, surrounded by roses and tulips with flower boxes filled with billowing blooms, wild grasses and seasonal foliage, all designed by Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht of Wild Bloom. “It was really important to me that we had our ceremony outdoors,” says Laich. “Julianne and I are very adventurous and free and wanted the setting to be in nature.”

The wedding party included Hough’s brother Derek Hough, who served as a groomsman. Their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Lexi and Harley, also sported flowered collars for the ceremony and served as ring bearers.

“I’ve never seen a man look at a woman like that when they said ‘I Do,’” says guest and close friend Nina Dobrev. “It took my breath away.”

Other notable guests included Aaron Paul and DWTS pro Mark Ballas.

Inside Julianne and Brooks' sweet relationship: A CHANCE ENCOUNTER: <p>Back in November 2013, Julianne Hough and her family attended a six-day seminar on creating one's own destiny — a trip that would eventually lead the star to meeting Brooks Laich. "I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn't work that by the end I was on a high," the Dancing with the Stars alum told Redbook in 2014, adding that she ended things with a few people she had been casually dating immediately following the seminar. "The next day, my Curve costar introduced [Brooks and me]," she revealed of Laich, who plays hockey for the Washington Capitals. "It couldn't have been a better time. We've been open and honest from day one."</p> Lucky in Love! Inside Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich's Sweet Relationship
