Minister and author Sarah Jakes shared a playful photo from her private wedding to Pastor Touré Roberts on Instagram on Sunday.

The Christian couple married nearly two weeks ago, but have kept details of their ceremony and photos of the occasion private.

"We got away," Pastor Roberts told his church on Sunday. "We left town and we went and had a very private, intimate ceremony, because we wanted it to be about us...We really wanted it to be about us and it was a beautiful, beautiful sunset ceremony on a fine beach."

One Church International's newest first lady expressed awe towards her husband when she addressed the congregation.

"PT is such an incredible man of God and I remember the first time I logged onto One Church and hearing him speak that I couldn't believe that God would trust me with the heart of such a king," she shared.

The couple met this spring and Roberts, 41, proposed on September 22. It is the second marriage for both, and they have a total of five children form their prior relationships.

Jakes, 25, is the daughter of renowned Bishop T.D. Jakes, and shared her testimony in her memoir, "Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life."

"If you had told me the girl who got pregnant at thirteen and felt like the black sheep child of America's favourite preacher would now be a twenty-five-year-old single mom, divorcée, author, motivational speaker, TV personality, ministry director, and senior editor, I never would have believed you," she wrote.

"But knowing it's true, that I'm all these things and so much more now, I'd say the only way to get your bearings and find yourself is to trust that you were never really lost," she continued. "Amid all your twists and turns, perhaps you simply haven't discovered the right direction yet. God loves the lost. And He loves to help us find our way when we turn to Him and ask directions."
