On Sunday Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris, the sports superstars who took the U.S. to their win at the World Cup wed in a lavish ceremony at the Vizcaya Museums and Gardens in Miami.
Harris told People magazine that they’ve been together for almost a decade,
“This will be the first time in our relationship where all of our friends, all of our family are going to come together to be one and to celebrate us on a completely different level.
I think so much of our support from our family and friends have been through soccer and this is just so much more meaningful, in my opinion, to be celebrated for love and acceptance and inclusion, that’s so major in the world we live in now.
I’m so excited to have this type of platform to have this type of visibility to be seen as a gay couple and it be accepted and it be important.”
Harris wore Thom Browne while Krieger wore Veronica Beard in photos posted the day before the nuptials.
For the ceremony, Krieger wore a white Pronovias gown with a long train. Harris wore a black custom Thom Browne double-breasted tux that with beaded overlay.
At the reception, tables were named for historic icons. Table 1 was named for Marsha P. Johnson.
“The defender of trans rights.”
The wedding cake for the couple, who notably have four World Cup wins between the two of them, was a layered cake reveal a rainbow colored sponge Innside.
The couple have also released video clips on social media.
