Michael Phelps revealed on Friday that he had secretly married Nicole Johnson in June. On Sunday, the Olympic swimmer and his new wife shared photos of the beautiful day on Instagram.
‘My best friend…. I love you!!’ Phelps captioned the image which shows the newlyweds walking up the aisle after saying their vows. Their son, Boomer, was held by one of the bridesmaids next to the altar.
The wedding ceremony took place on a lawn overlooking the ocean in Cabo San Lucas. The aisle was lined with white rose petals and lanterns.
Phelps wore a light gray suit with a powder blue tie. Johnson’s dress, by Julie Vino Bridal, appeared to be a two piece ensemble. The top had a plunging neckline and mesh detail, while the ivory colored skirt had a slit up the side.
Johnson, a former Miss California, started dating Phelps in 2009. They briefly split up in 2012 before getting back together. Phelps proposed in 2014.
The couple revealed they were having 2 wedding ceremonies. A small private wedding out of the country and then a big party for all of their friends and family back home.
This is the first marriage for both.
