WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson got married on Friday in Phoenix, just two weeks after the couple was involved in a domestic violence incident.

via People:

As about 75 guests looked on, the
brides, both 24, were married beneath an archway at the Pointe Hilton
Tapatio Cliffs Resort. Bouquets and arrangements of white hydrangea,
white and coral roses, and peach hypericum berries helped establish
their theme of “desert elegance” in the city where Griner plays center
for the three-time WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury.
Their first dance was to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”
Johnson, a forward with the Tulsa
Shock, wore a full-length, strapless champagne gown with a small train
by Matthew Christopher that she selected from Bridals by Lori in Atlanta
on an episode of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress.
The couple were engaged last August.
After the ceremony, they celebrated with a sit-down dinner on the
resort’s Falls Terrace, followed by a tiered cake dessert that combined
Griner’s favorite, white cake, with Johnson’s favorite, red velvet.

Now, just two weeks ago, the couple got into a physical altercation
at their home in Goodyear, Arizona. They were both arrested for assault
and disorderly conduct. Griner took a plea deal to enter domestic
violence counseling in exchange for having her charges dropped. Johnson
reportedly enrolled in counseling voluntarily.

“It is never OK for an argument to
turn physical,” Griner said 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,” she added.

Domestic violence can have lasting psychological effects on everyone
involved. We hope that they continue to work on developing a healthy
relationship/marriage.
