Alek and Marielena Manoah have officially tied the knot.

The Toronto Blue Jays pitcher and his now-wife marked their stunning ceremony in Puerto Rico over the weekend. They shared a peek into their special day on Instagram, with candid photos of their first kiss and the joyous moment before their walk back down the aisle as husband and wife.

In the snaps, Marielena donned a gorgeous strapless mermaid gown, while Alek opted for a non-traditional ensemble; a white blazer, black trousers and green Nike sneakers.

"The Manoahs," the caption reads.

In the comments, fans left warm messages congratulating the newlyweds.

"Congratulations. You both look so happy and your dress is stunning!" one Instagram user penned.

"Stunning! So happy for you," another wrote.

A fan commented: "Congrats! Gorgeous is an understatement."

"This is amazing! Congratulations!" someone chimed in.

"These photos are so stunning. Chef's kiss. Congrats to y'all," another commenter shared.

The wedding was a Blue Jays affair, with teammates and their partners, like pitcher Zach Pop and his fiancée Taye Anita, and pitcher Jordan Romano and his wife Sam, celebrating alongside them.

Anita took to Instagram with a series of photos from the wedding weekend of herself and Pop, the bridesmaids — and the bride.

"Congratulations to Mr & Mrs. Manoah!," she captioned the post. "Yesterday was out of this world. We love you! Leaving Puerto Rico with some of the best memories. We danced every night (and learned how to salsa), and have more smile lines from laughing so hard!"

The Manoahs, who have been together since their college days, announced their engagement one year ago after the MLBer popped the question on New Years Eve.

Alongside a carousel of candid Instagram photos documenting the proposal in front of their friends and family, Marilena penned: "Best way to start the year… a million times!"
