The couple had not divulged when they were set to tie the knot but Heather finally let the cat out of the bag on Instagram Friday. 

The pair were seen arriving in a party bus before heading inside. For the day Heather opted for a red skirt set, and paired the look with nude Valentino heels.  

 Adding a festive kick she flashed an embroidered jean jacket that read 'Mrs. El Moussa' and a clutch with her soon-to-be initials 'HEM.'

She smiled from ear to ear throughout the afternoon while mingling with their close circle and the two even seemed to prepare for their first dance tomorrow as he twirled her around.

In customary fashion they made a toast and addressed the crowd, thanking their loved ones for attending. 

Though they had originally planned to get married in Mexico, they decided to opt for the stunning coastal town of Santa Barbara instead. 

The wedding is set to be a black tie affair but the location for the nuptials has not been revealed.

The couple spoke to ET about making the decision to film their star-studded wedding and even divulged details about the guest list and color scheme. 

'Blacks, golds, whites, champagnes ... that's the aesthetic of the wedding,' Young shared adding that some pink touches could be expected. 

'When we decided to do a wedding special, it wasn't an easy decision, because a wedding is so beautiful and intimate and private. So we actually went back and forth for months deciding,' Heather said. 

She continued to say 'it was a no, it was a hard no,' for a very long time before they started to think more about their lives as public figures and how they wanted to convey their love to the world.  

Loved up: 'People think our love is cheesy or maybe it's not real. We really are so in love,' she told ET
