Harris, 34, and Krieger, 35, officially exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony with family friends at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida, on Saturday.
US National team Soccer stars Ashlyn Harris and Alie Kriger are now married! 34-year-old Harris officially exchanged vows with 35-year-old Krieger in a wonderful ceremony with their friends and family at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida, on Saturday. People confirmed that Singer Kina Grannis performed at the ceremony as the couple walked down the aisle. Just days before the wedding, Krieger told the magazine how she and Harris fell in love with the venue right away.
“It was this kind of Mediterranean castle-like vibe right on the water, this European-type vibe that we were going for,” she explained. “Right when we walked in we were like, ‘Oh my God. We love this and everyone else was going to love this and this is just … This is it.’” Added Harris, “I think the biggest thing for Ali and I was creating an environment where it was a very classic and clean and modern and just really sharp and almost in a magical way that’s kind of what our vision was from the very beginning. So right off the bat, we excluded anything rustic, anything barn door, anything that had that kind of aesthetic. And I think that for me personally, the venue was the most important thing.”

Krieger exclaimed how she took on the responsibility of planning the event and festivities herself. Along the way, she received much help from Sara Lowell of Sara Renee Events and the couple's agency, Wasserman. The couple used the Knot to help get prepared for the big day ahead, and also create a registry for their guests.
We really went from having no out USWNT players at the beginning of the decade to Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris starting the new decade playing together for the USWNT as WIVES and that is what I call an absolute GLOW UP 🥺 pic.twitter.com/AAe1qytWY9— dened rey moreno (@Hajabeg) December 27, 2019
For the special day, Krieger wore a gown by Pronovias, who is the designer for the mother of the brides' dresses and bridesmaids' dresses. Harris wore a stunning custom suit made by Thom Browne. The couple took each others' rings, by Great Heights, who according to Kriger "share the same vision and support surrounding equality and LGBTQ marriage rights." “So I’m so excited to have this type of platform to have this type of visibility to be seen as a gay couple and it be accepted and it be important,” she added.
“We became really close friends, and we just hung out, we clicked, and we had so much in common,” Harris told People of the time the two had just met. “We always sat next to each other on the bus and on flights, and we kind of just talked about our dreams and our hopes and what we wanted to do one day when we grew up. Because at the time, we were kids.”. “You’re always fearful of that — you never know how people are going to react, and you might lose fans, or lose respect,” Harris said. “You never know where people lie on the political scale, so it was definitely risky,” she continued. “But in the end, we had such a great outpouring of just love and acceptance, and we're so grateful for how we’re continuing to progress and move forward in society, and being accepted for being authentically who we are.”

Harris and Kriger, who were both part of the U.S Women's Soccer Team which won 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, giving America their 4th championship are all set for their whole new adventure as a married couple. “I just feel so happy. When I’m training, and I’m in games, and challenges or things aren’t going my way, I literally am so happy to go home to the family I’m creating,” Harris told People of the engagement in March. “It just makes life so enjoyable, and waking up every day for a new adventure with my little family, and it’s like the best feeling in the world.”
