Soccer Star and U.S. Olympian Carli Lloyd Is Married!

Carli Lloyd is a married woman!
The two-time Olympic gold medalist married her high school sweetheart, pro golfer, Brian Hollins, on Friday.
According to The Knot, the pair exchanged vows in Puerto Morelos, Mexico surrounded by 75 close friends and family members. The ceremony took place beachside along the beautiful Mayan Riviera. Lloyd, 34, wore a stunning strapless gown from Matthew Christopher’s fall 2016 collection.
Lloyd, a self-proclaimed “low-key bride,” took a laid-back approach to planning her destination wedding.
“I’m not really that difficult,” she told The Knot in an interview last year. “I just want to have a good time with everybody, I just want to have a good night. I want my hair and makeup to look great [and] my dress to be beautiful. But other than that, I’m not too particular.”
The newlyweds got engaged in January 2013, and dated for 15 years prior. The pair chose to extend their engagement until after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro where Lloyd competed with the United States Women’s National Team.
Prior to the wedding, Lloyd took to Instagram to share a few sweet photos with Hollins.
