Congrats to Abby and her new wife, Glennon Doyle Melton! Although it feels like Wambach and Melton just got engaged, the two made it official this past Sunday (5/14) in a beautiful ceremony. The lesbian athlete donned a burgundy (?) blazer with white pants while Glennon wore an exquisite gown for the occasion — check out some of the gorgeous pics below!

Oh, and Melton wrote the sweetest message about conquering her fears to find love with Abby:

When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared. I thought that my fear might be bigger than my courage, and that because of that size difference, I might miss out on my chance at happiness. This was so painful. One day, I was talking to my dear friend Martha Beck. I told her that losing this love would be painful, but that I was used to learning from pain. And Martha said: "Honey. It's true that God teaches us through pain. But it is also true that God tries to teach us through joy first. You can keep choosing heartbreak and pain, Glennon. But you can also choose joy. God can use that choice too. And I actually believe that God prefers to use joy to teach us." And so, for once, I chose joy. I have lived a long while learning from pain and God, it's been a good teacher. I'm forty one, now. And I'm graduating to joy. I choose joy. You can, too. First the pain. Then the rising. Your courage is bigger than your fear. Love, G (Ms. Doyle-Wambach if you're nasty) @abbywambach @elizabeth_gilbert_writer @marthabeckauthor
