Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson Are Married: Get Details About the WNBA Stars’ Wedding

Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson are married, two weeks after their domestic violence arrest.

The 24-year-old WNBA stars wed on Friday at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix. Johnston posted a wedding photo of herself and her partner on Saturday on her Instagram page.

She wore a strapless champagne wedding gown with crystal detailing, a sweetheart neckline and long train, paired with what appeared to be a cathedral-length veil, crystal headband and large necklace while Griner sported a tan suit, light button-down dress shirt and white tennis shoes.

The bride had picked out her dress at Bridals by Lori’s in Atlanta, as seen on an episode of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.rs_600x600-140815174820-600_griner2_cm_81514_copy

The wedding took place on Friday in front of some 75 guests and the newlyweds’ first dance was Ed Sheeran‘s “Thinking Out Loud,” People magazine reported.

Griner proposed to Johnson in August 2014 (see a pic of the engagement ring!)

The wedding comes two weeks after both women were arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after police responded to a domestic dispute at their new home outside of Phoenix. The two suffered minor injuries. The WNBA launched an investigation.

Griner pleaded pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct under a plea deal and is set to attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling and upon completion all charges will be dismissed, USA Today reported on April 28, adding that she voluntarily began counseling the day after her arrest and is cooperating with the WNBA’s investigation.

“It is never OK for an argument to turn physical,” the newspaper quoted Griner as saying in a statement released through her attorney. “This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously. I am committed to making positive changes and I plan to use what I have learned to set a good example and help make a difference in the world around me.”
