Because there's no better place to get married
With the royal wedding just a day away, everyone who is everyone has switched to ‘celebrate love’ mode. We thought we’d jump on that bandwagon by celebrating love the only way we know how… beach volleyball style. We’ve collated a few photographs of our beach volleyball stars on their wedding days… feel free to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’.
1. Kira Walkenhorst
Just look at them! (swooning) Walkenhorst and long-time girlfriend, Maria Kleefisch, tied the knot at the majestic Timmendorfer Strand in October last year. Well, you know how the saying goes, if you love where you work (the beach), you should get married there.
2. Alison Mamute
Foi um fim de semana mágico, inesquecível... Agora, meus amigos, sou um homem casado. E agradeço a todos que mandaram mensagens de carinho para mim e para a Tatiana, minha esposa, nesse momento em que começamos uma vida nova, construindo uma nova família... Não consigo dizer o quanto eu estou feliz...
One of our favourite Brazilian studs, Alison Cerutti said ‘I do’ to his long-time girlfriend Tatiana Tristão in September last year. The cherry on top was teammate, Bruno Schmidt, playing the saxophone at their wedding! Now that was one to remember.
3. Markéta Sluková-Nausch
Our Czech girl Marketa Slukova married Coach Simon Nausch at a picturesque farm in Arkansas, USA, in September 2016. “It is very romantic, located directly in the forest where you can see the Milky Way,” raved Simon. Nothing more romantic than being surrounded by close family and friends underneath the stars. For more on this dynamic duo, click here.
4. Sam Pedlow
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace . 🎄Wishing you and your families the happiest of Holidays this Christmas Season🎄 . 📷 @stolenmomentsphotography . . . #voli #volimania #voliindo #volleyball #beachin #volleyphoto #volleyballphoto #roadtotokyo #gc2018 #volleyball #volleyballislife #volleyballteam #volleyballgame #volleyballlove #fit #motivationmonday #motivationdaily #motivationquote #fitnessmodel #fitfam #california #manhattanbeach #hermosabeach #torontofitness #poweredbyplants #plantbased #sx2 #plantpower #inked #bearded
Sam Pedlow walked down the aisle with his long-time girlfriend Rebecca Hall-McGuire in October last year after 11 years together. “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams” says Pedlow on his beautiful bride.
5. Sarah Pavan
3 years ago I married the man of my dreams. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to wake up next to, and experience this life with such a wonderful and devoted husband and friend. The past 3 years have been the best of my life, and I can't wait to see what the rest have in store for us as we take on this crazy life we lead. Happy Anniversary, my love!
This lovely throwback was found on Sarah Pavan’s Instagram profile. Just pause for a moment to admire her - she looks amazing. Pavan married Adam Schultz in August 2011 and they are the definition of #CoupleGoals.
6. Phil Dalhausser
The thin beast wedded former beach volleyball player Jennifer Corral in October 2011. They have two little cutie-pies together: daughter, Sofia and son, Sebastian. Don’t they look like they belong on a postcard? Wish you were here!
7. Brooke Youngquist Sweat
This little black and white pic is of young Brooke Sweat marrying her partner in crime Nicholas Sweat. They definitely look a match made in heaven. Smiles all over.
8. Larissa Maestrini
Parabéns meu Amor!!!! Mais um aniversário ao seu lado... Deus foi tão bom comigo de ter colocado você na minha vida. Eu agradeço e vou continuar agradecendo todos os dias por isso! É como se eu estivesse no paraíso... ter você juntinho é a melhor coisa do mundo. Eu durmo e acordo todos os dias sentindo um amor tão grande que parece não caber em mim. Eu te amo demais!!! Essa frase parece pequena pra expressar tudo o que eu sinto por você, meu amor. Estou e estarei sempre aqui pra você. Quero poder te amar e cuidar de você pelo resto dessa vida e das outras também! Vamos aproveitar esse dia especial!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Adding white to the rainbow and celebrating love - Larissa and Lili Maestrini Franҫa are a picture of happiness. I wonder who caught the bouquets?
9. Casey Patterson
Casey Patterson and wife Alexis are the couple that everyone wants to either be or be friends with. They are the the epitome of #RelationshipGoals and now, four kiddos later, they are the epitome of #FamilyGoals. Gotta love the Pattersons.
And there you have it, nine pics of our beach stars walking down the aisle, tying the knot, getting hitched, getting betrothed, hearing the wedding bells and it is oh so beautiful. We are just left wondering, who’s next? And can we be invited? And… will Bruno Schmidt be playing the saxophone?
