The actress and her husband tied the knot in Costa Rica

The Spartacus: Vengeance star said 'I do' at the DoceLunas resort which is located at the base of a mountain and surrounded by lush forest. It offers wedding ceremonies in the tropical garden or on the sandy beach – both of which look equally idyllic.

"Costa Rica is my favorite place in the world," Katrina said, adding of her big day: "One of my favorite moments was the fireworks display. My second favorite moment was when we all jumped into the pool, fully clothed!"

The couple share daughter Kinley

To mark her wedding anniversary in 2018, Katrina shared a throwback photo taken by Brandi Ramirez that showed the loved-up newlyweds on the beach at sunset with the ocean stretching out behind them.

"Today I celebrate our five-year wedding anniversary!!! I love you @keithandreen. You are the love of my life. I love your twisted sense of humor and your sharp wit. I love how talented and creative you are. I love that you can shine as bright as the sun and still be my solid rock," she gushed in the caption.

"It’s amazing how far we have come together and I fall more and more in love with you everyday. This year we celebrate five years together while traveling through Nepal. I can’t wait to see where next year takes us. I love you, baby."
