Derek Hough and his new 28-year-old wife Hayley Erbert were seen for the first time since they married in a splashy and star-studded wedding last weekend in scenic Carmel, California.
The Dancing With The Stars veterans were spotted on their luxury honeymoon on the coast of Italy.

They also flashed their new sparkly wedding bands as the 5ft6in beauty sported a bridal white manicure as they took loved-up selfies by the dock.

‘We’re in a redwood forest, but we got married right in front of this mother tree that’s surrounded by all these smaller trees,’ Erbert explained.
She added, ‘They drop all the seeds, and it plants kind of like an army of children to protect the mother. The symbolism of it was beautiful.
Hayley concluded why the imagery of the trees was so meaningful to her. ‘We’re here, planting our seeds to grow our family,’ she said.

Recognizing that guests might expect them both to perform for their first dance, Derek explained, ‘For us, it feels more special for us to not perform.
‘To be on the floor with each other, to listen to music, and just be in the moment.’
The couple’s first dance was set to Forrest Blakk’s Fall Into Me.
Recognizing the weight of his marriage vows, Derek stated, ‘It’s so interesting what a small sort of piece of metal can do to your whole persona and your whole outlook on everything, where all of a sudden it’s sort of like, oh, I have this promise that I carry with me all the time…
‘And to want to be a man to live up to that promise daily for that person and for yourself and for others, it’s a powerful thing.
‘It’s a beautiful thing. So for me, I’m excited to continue to aspire to be that man each and every day for her, for our animals and for our future family.’
