The WNBA's Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson tied the knot Friday, exchanging vows to the sounds of a cascading waterfall on the grounds of the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, according to People.

About 75 guests attended the ceremony, which took place beneath an archway adorned with arrangements of white hydrangea, white and coral roses, and peach hypericum berries, which People says tied into the couple's wedding theme of "desert elegance."

Griner, the center for the Phoenix Mercury, donned a tan suit, coral boutonniere, and white tennis shoes. Johnson, the forward with the Tulsa Shock, wore a strapless, champagne-hued Matthew Christopher wedding dress that she purchased from Bridals by Lori on an episode of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress. She completed her romantic ensemble with a cathedral-length veil, crystal headband, and a chandelier-style necklace.

One of my favorites!!! @brittneygriner

After the intimate ceremony, the couple celebrated with a sit-down dinner, then indulged in a wedding cake that combined both brides' favorite flavors — white cake and red velvet. Then, the couple took a twirl to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" for their first dance.

The couple got engaged in August, at which time Griner told USA Today, "I'm definitely happy, and it was a big point in my life. When you find the one, you really know. I just knew. I was more nervous (proposing) than anything in my whole life. I almost passed out."
