Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes married Juan David Borrero — a Snapchat exec and member of Ecuador’s second family — in Quito, Ecuador, this weekend.
Sources tell us the event was the buzz of the South American country.
Tookes and Borrero, the app’s director of international markets and son of Ecuadorian vice president Alfredo Borrero, wed at the historic 16th-century Church and Convent of St. Francis in front of fellow Angels Josephine Skriver, Shanina Shaik, Lais Ribeiro, Sara Sampaio and Kelsey Merritt.
Tookes wore a long-sleeved lace gown by Zuhair Murad, reports Arab News.
The couple got engaged last September, with Tookes announcing the news on Instagram in a series of pictures showing off her custom seven-carat Ritani ring, pebbles spelling out “WYMM” (for “Will you marry me?”), and the pair toasting with champagne. “Si, mi amor!” she captioned the shots. (We wonder why she didn’t announce it on Snapchat.)
“It was a complete surprise!” Tookes told Vogue, saying Borrero blindfolded her and brought her to their first date spot, The Rose in Venice, California, and then took her on a plane for a special meal.
“He knows me so well that he had Popeye’s catered — I was in heaven! — so we ate chicken tenders and drank champagne until we landed in Page, Arizona. Then we hopped on a helicopter which flew us to the most beautiful, otherworldly … secluded place in the middle of the desert rocks in Utah,” she said.
The ring was delivered in high-tech style. “I heard a drone flying from above which had a string hanging from it with a small black pouch below,” she told the site. “As the drone approached, he reached into the pouch pulled out the box and went on one knee. I was in complete disbelief and immediately burst into tears because this was something I did not expect. After lots of happy tears, I obviously said yes, and this was honestly the best day I could’ve ever imagined.”
The pair began dating in 2016.
Tookes held her bachelorette party in Croatia in July with model pals including Rachel Scott, Romee Strijd and Taylor Hill.
