Thirty-five people attended the ceremony, which featured a surprise performance by the one and only Steven Tyler and Loving Mary, the Aerosmith frontman’s new band based in Nashville.
“Our wedding was just perfect,” Busch, 38, tells PEOPLE. “Ashley and I chose our favorite island, providing the perfect beach setting and surrounded with our closest loved ones. Eden Rock in St. Bart stands alone as our favorite place to visit, and we wanted to share our slice of paradise found with everybody."
“We were able to blend a simple beach ceremony with a grand event. Not one detail was missed and the evening truly defined the both of us.”
“It was love at first sight,” adds Van Metre. “There was a feeling between us that neither of us had ever felt before or even knew existed. I told him I would have married him if he had just given me a Ring Pop!”
Kurt and Ashley shared a romantic reveal prior to walking down the aisle. “It gave me some time to get a bit of the crying out of the way!” Busch says.
The couple also hosted a celebration party at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla., which Ashley said was “truly a fairytale.”
