Tara Lipinski is going for the gold in the wedding arena! The former Olympian is officially married after tying the knot with her love, sports producer Todd Kapostasy, this weekend in South Carolina. Here's everything we know about the romantic summer nuptials.
Lipinski and Kapostasy got engaged in December of 2015, with the former figure skater taking to Instagram to announce the nupital news. "My life changed forever last night," Lipinski captioned a snapshot of herself and her now-hubs (with her oval-cut engagement ring in full view!). "I feel so lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend and love of my life. I've had many monumental happy days in my life but this by far is my happiest. I love you." Now after over a two-year-long engagement, Lipinski and Kapostasy have finally said their "I dos."
People magazine reports that the nupitals took place at Middleton Place in Charleston, after a rehearsal dinner at Boone Hall in Mount Pleasant. Lipinski donned a flirty, little white dress for the night-before bash where she twirled on the dance floor with her bridesman fellow skater Johnny Weir and shared her excitement for the day ahead on Instagram.
Then, on Saturday, June 24, Lipinski and Kapostasy said their "I dos." Before the ceremony, the bride gave her followers a sneak peek of her lush, white wedding flowers designed by Jackson Durham Events.
“I had a vision, because I love a very soft romantic palette so lots of creams, light colors, touches of green with flowers,” Lipinski told People ahead of her big day. “So we have orchids and roses on roses on roses.”
“I’m stunned by how beautiful it is,” she added. “We’ll also incorporate lanterns and arches to give the wedding an ultra-romantic vibe.”
On the morning of her wedding, the bride was also gifted a heartfelt keepsake by her mother. "What a special morning," Lipinski captioned a photo of the moment. "My mom gave me the most beautiful gift. From the day I was born til the day I got married she wrote in a book about our journey together as mother and daughter. Holy tears!"
For the ceremony, People reports that Lipinski donned a Reem Acra tulle wedding dress, complete with Charlotte Olympia pumps, for her walk down the aisle. Meanwhile, her bridesmaids were fitted with floral crowns, as well as Lipinski's itty bitty flower girl.
After the "I dos," the couple and their guests celebrated at a reception full of Southern-inspired dishes, including chicken and waffles and special late night snacks. Yum!
