Hamilton, the surfer behind the movie Soul Surfer, announced her engagement to the Young Life Christian Ministry youth leader on her blog in May.

"We started hanging out often. Just as friends – hiking, beach, tennis, hanging with friends – getting to know each other! The more time we spent together the more I liked Adam. He is genuine, kind, fun, adventurous, easy going, friendly to all, passionate for Christ and just a great guy over all! …and he liked me too!," Hamilton shared.

According Us Magazine, the pair married on Saturday in Kauai, Hawaii where they both live. It is also the place where Hamilton was attacked by shark in 2003; she lost her left arm due to the attack. Hamilton and her story of determination led to the 2011 movie.

Hamilton and Dirks will now enjoy a glamping-style honeymoon according to Us Magazine. "We're doing a non tropical honeymoon," Hamilton and the celebrity magazine revealed. "We're gonna get a cabin, it's going to be cute."
