last week married Aaron Tredwell.
The couple, who got engaged in
December, exchanged vows in Mock's hometown of Oahu, Hawaii.
Mock, the author of Redefining
Realness, discussed her wedding day in an op-ed for
“Though a wedding doesn't make a
marriage, being able to show up and declare our commitment in front
of the people we love meant everything to us,” she wrote.
“The whole day was a statement on the
transformative power of being seen for who you really are and being
loved not despite your past and experiences but because of it,”
On Instagram, she shared a photo from
her wedding day, which she captioned: “Last night, I married he
love of my life, my partner, by best friend near the ocean, under the
stars that navigated my ancestors to Hawaii, surrounded by the people
we love most.”
Mock and Tredwell met in 2009.
