They went for the gold! Olympic ice dancers Charlie White and Tanith Belbin tied the knot Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan, according to People.
The duo exchanged vows at the Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfield, just miles from the suburban Detroit rink where the couple met more than 15 years ago. About 130 guests, including White’s Olympic partner, Meryl Davis, attended the understated, yet elegant, the ceremony, officiated by White’s brother-in-law Todd Weishaus.
“She was the most beautiful girl at the rink,” gold medalist White told People of meeting his now-wife. “I think probably every guy had a crush on her.”
The couple began dating in 2009, and White proposed to the Olympic silver medalist last may. As the couple basked in their engagement in Hawaii, White wrote on Instagram, “Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting for the best time in our life! Hashtag she said yes!!!”
For their spring affair, Belbin wore a Modern Trousseu wedding dress that featured a pink ombré skirt, sweetheart neckline and A-line silhouette, People reports. Her bridesmaids — including White’s three sisters and Davis — selected their own gowns in shades of pink. White donned a traiditional black and white tuxedo, and slipped a platinum pavé diamond band on Belbin’s finger as they exchanged vows.
Guests and the couple enjoyed a reception that included a dinner of filet mignon and shrimp cremosi, according to People, and a three-tier vanilla wedding cake.
