Goooaaall!

World Cup champ and two-time Olympic gold medalist Carli Lloyd looked stunning at her private beach wedding to high school sweetheart golf pro Brian Hollins in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, on November 4.

The bride was all smiles in her strapless gown from couture bridal designer Matthew Christopher’s Fall 2016 collection. 

This was the best day of our lives,” Lloyd told The Knot.

“Even after 16 years of being together, I fell more in love with him on our wedding day,” said Lloyd. “I love the person he is—the person he’s become.”

The couple got engaged in January 2013 after 15 years of dating but postponed a wedding until after the 2016 Olympics.

Lloyd told The Knot in 2015 that she would be a “low-key bride.”

“I’m not really that difficult. I just want to have a good time with everybody, I just want to have a good night,” she said. “I want my hair and makeup to look great [and] my dress to be beautiful. But other than that, I’m not too particular.”
