Olympic figure skater Michelle marries

Two-time US Olympic figure skater medal winner Michelle Kwan married her Coast Guard fiance in Rhode Island this weekend. Lt. Clay Pell and Michelle tied the knot at the 200 year old First Unitarian Church in Providence where they had invited 250 guests.

Kwan, who was in tears while walking down the aisle, wore an ivory, strapless Vera Wang wedding dress with scalloped hemline. The designer has made many of the skater’s dresses in the past.

Her husband, aged 31, is a director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House and a Lieutenant in the US Coast Guard (whose full dress uniform he wore for the ceremony).

Kwan, 32, has won more ice skating medals for America than anyone in history. Her accolades include a silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics, and a bronze at the 2002 Winter Games.
