Merry early Christmas, Olympian lovers — Michael Phelps' wedding video has arrived! And the footage capturing the famed swimmer's wedding day to his long-time love, model and 2010 Miss California USA, Nicole Johnson, is just as romantic and dreamy as you could have ever hoped. (Don't believe us? Just catch the first five seconds — featuring Mr. Phelps sans shirt!)
The picturesque destination wedding, featured in the above video by Taylor Chien, was actually their second! The pair, who have been dating on and off for over eight years, first married in an intimate, five-person ceremony in their backyard in Tempe, Arizona, on June 13, then followed that up with a wedding for 50 of their closest friends and family in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on October 29.
It's apparent through the wedding video, obtained exclusively by BRIDES, that the newlyweds totally outdid themselves when it came to planning this gorgeous seaside celebration. The couple exchanged vows under a lush arched copper structure in an intimate, romantic ceremony. Nicole (who gave birth to their first child, son Boomer, earlier this year) wore a figure-hugging Julie Vino wedding dress when she said "I do" to her Olympian love — let's not forget that just this summer Michael competed in his fifth and final Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he won his record-breaking 23rd gold medal.
Afterward, the new Mr. and Mrs. Phelps celebrated with their friends, family and wedding party (including bridesmaids wearing oh-so-trendy neutral dresses from Vow To Be Chic) in a Pinterest-worthy, beachfront reception. From the color palette of white, gray and natural wood paired with gold, lavender and teal accents, to the warm ambience created by the soft candle lighting and foliage, to the dramatic hanging installation (so on trend!) of orchids and foliage over the tables, it's clear this famous pair was focused on creating a one-in-a-million wedding.
