Model Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner — a venture capitalist who is also the younger brother of the White House adviser Jared Kushner — first got married in October 2018.
But the couple held a second wedding ceremony in June, just eight months after they first tied the knot. Page Six reports the reception took place at Bush Creek Ranch in Wyoming, and guests in attendance were decked out in western-themed outfits.
Kloss and Kushner first started dating in 2012, although they've kept their relationship under the radar.
Here's a look at the relationship between Joshua Kushner and Karlie Kloss, including their ties to President Donald Trump:
This is an update to a story originally published in March 2018.

Kushner has also helped start two companies: He cofounded health insurance startup Oscar Health in 2012 and real estate investment company Cadre in 2015.
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old Karlie Kloss has been working as a model since her teenage years. Kloss skyrocketed to prominence in 2007 when she was 15, and now brings in upwards of $10 million a year.
In 2015, Kloss started Kode With Klossy, a charity that encourages girls to get involved in coding and tech.

Kloss and Kushner have been dating since 2012. It's not clear exactly how the two met, and the high-profile couple have tried to keep their relationship relatively private.
Kushner was first spotted on Kloss' arm at a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show afterparty in 2012, Us Weekly reported.
In 2013, Kloss told People that she appreciates Kushner is "so not in fashion."
"It's really refreshing to leave all the fashion shows and shoots and chaos totally behind," Kloss told People.
The couple has largely avoided talking about politics, although Kushner has family ties to the highest office in the land — Josh Kushner is the younger brother of Jared Kushner, son-in-law to President Donald Trump and a senior White House advisor.
The Kushner brothers teamed up to found Cadre back in 2015. Josh Kushner told Forbes in April 2017 that he and his brother spoke every day, and refused to comment for an Esquire article about Jared Kushner is 2016 because he "did not want to say anything that might embarrass him."
But the couple has publicly said they didn't vote for Trump in 2016. Kushner has said he's a lifelong Democrat, and Kloss posted she had voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
Kloss posted a photo of herself on Instagram in November 2016 filling out an absentee ballot. She included the hashtag #ImWithHer in support of Clinton.
"It is no secret that liberal values have guided my life and that I have supported political leaders that share similar values," Joshua Kushner told Forbes in 2017.
Neither Kushner or Kloss were present at Trump's inauguration. Instead, Kushner was spotted at the Women's March in DC that weekend.
Kushner told other marchers he was there to observe, The Washingtonian reported.
While Kloss wasn't in attendance, she posted a photo from the same Women's March with an Audre Lorde quote: "Women are powerful and dangerous."
While President Trump is unpopular in Silicon Valley, it doesn't seem like Kushner's proximity to the White House has slowed down his career as an investor in a meaningful way.
"There is a lot of discussion in the Valley about political tests on both who you'll take money from and who you'll work with," the venture capitalist Marc Andreessen told Forbes in 2017. "Having said that, I haven't yet seen an instance of anyone hesitating to take money from Josh because of the affiliation with his brother."
Kloss and Kushner got engaged in July 2018, after six years of dating. Kushner reportedly proposed "during a romantic weekend in together in upstate New York," People Magazine reported at the time.

"They're both overjoyed and happily celebrating. Their hearts are full and they're excited to build their future together," a source told People at the time of the engagement.
Reports emerged soon after that Kloss converted to Judaism shortly before getting engaged to Kushner, who is Jewish.
Kloss confirmed the news she had converted in a March 2019 interview.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner attended the couple's wedding.

"So much love for you both as you begin forever together," Trump tweeted.
At the time of the first wedding, People reported the couple would have a "larger celebration for friends and loved ones" in the spring. In June, the couple had their second wedding celebration — at a ranch in Wyoming.
The wedding was held at Brush Creek Ranch, an "all-inclusive ranch resort" near the Wyoming-Colorado border.
