Roberts updated fans with another picture that showed the beauty of the place at night. "Oh what a night to remember," Roberts noted about the dinner set-up with twinkling warm lights above the table.

On the couple's table decorated with flowers in a vase, there were water bottles and a bottle of wine. A pile of burnt charcoal in the grilling area glowed on the side surrounded by large stones.
