One word can describe the United States Women's National Soccer Team's 2019: Victory. Not only did the team secure a World Cup title this summer, but four players won in the game of love this year, which resulted in three weddings during the month of December!
Teammates Andi Sullivan, Adrianna Franch, Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris all wed this month, ending the year with a bang! "Dec. 14, Dec 21, Dec. 28. Love wins forever and ever. Congrats to our people," wrote the U.S. Women's National Team's Instagram account while sharing photos from each of the three weddings. From what the athletes wore to where they wed, here's your inside look at all three celebrations!
The first athlete to tie the knot this month was Andi Sullivan, who said "I do" to boyfriend and fellow soccer player Drew Skundrich on December 14. The couple hosted their nuptials at The Barn at Willow Brook in Leesburg, Virginia. The bride wore a sleeveless ivory gown featuring a lace bodice, satin sash and chiffon skirt with a thigh-high slit. Sullivan dressed her bridesmaids in floor-length gowns in varying shades of blue.
She shared a photo with her new husband on Instagram with the words, "Sunshine Skundy," alluding to her current handle of @sunnysulli. Skundrich also shared a few photos of his own from the big day, including a candid shot during the couple's first dance. "Best day of my life ❤️Thank you all for celebrating this special day with us. Huge thank you to everyone who made it happen behind the scenes," he captioned the post.
On December 21, it was goalkeeper Adrianna Franch's turn to tie the knot. Wearing a custom charcoal and purple three-piece suit by Wildwood Company, Franch wed girlfriend Emily Boscacci on a rainy day in Portland, Oregon. "Couldn't write a better ending to 2019 than marrying the woman of my dreams on 12/21. Cheers to the rest of our lives baby," wrote Franch on Instagram alongside a photo of the newlyweds kissing under umbrellas.
Boscacci wore a white lace gown for the nuptials and shared similar heartfelt words in an Instagram post. "Looking back on the biggest and best day of my year, decade, etc: becoming Mrs. Boscacci-Franch on 12.21.2019," she wrote. "I have such deep gratitude for all our family, friends, and people who made this day so wonderful and who have shown us the true meaning of unconditional love. To my WIFE, @afranch23, you fill me with so much joy ... today and every day. Right here, right now, doing everything or nothing at all, I choose you and I love you."
Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris
Most recently, teammates Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris hosted a winter wedding weekend in Miami. The couple began dating in 2010 after playing for the U.S. Women's National Team together and got engaged in March of this year.
Ahead of their Miami nuptials, the couple hosted a rehearsal dinner for family at Seaspice restaurant and wore coordinating white suits. Krieger chose the Athens dickey jacket and Noel pant from Veronica Beard while Harris wore a suit jacket, pleated skirt and sheer collared shirt by Thom Browne. "It’s time baby... I’ve been waiting 10 years for this moment," wrote Harris before the ceremony.
While the duo wore coordinating ensembles for the rehearsal dinner, the opted for very different looks for their wedding ceremony, which was held in Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. Krieger wore a long-sleeve gown by Pronovias while Harris commissioned Thom Browne yet again for a custom black and emerald suit. The couple's teammate Megan Rapinoe was a part of the wedding party and also wore a creation by Thom Browne. The newlyweds exchanged wedding bands by Great Heights since the brand "shares the same vision and support surrounding equality and LGBTQ marriage rights," says Krieger.
Based on the success of 2019 for these women, 2020 has some big shoes to fill. But now, these athletes get to tackle a new decade with their spouses by their side and we couldn't be more excited for them!
