The 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea has inspired athletes, sports enthusiasts, and even brides and grooms. Team USA athletes made history with 23 Olympic medals, including nine gold medals from Jamie Anderson for women's snowboard slopestyle, Red Gerard for men's snowboard slopestyle, Chloe Kim for women's snowboard halfpipe, Shaun White for men's snowboard halfpipe, Mikaela Shiffrin for women's giant slalom, Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall for women's cross-country skiing, Team USA for women's hockey and men's curling, and David Wise for men's ski halfpipe.

While we're excitedly watching this year's events, the current coverage also makes us reminisce on the Olympic Games of the past. Inside Weddings has featured the real weddings of a number of Olympic athletes, as well as some engagement shoots, engagement parties, and planning tips featured on InsideWeddings.com. Take a look below to get a glimpse at the celebrations of some well-known Olympians, and be inspired by their celebrations that won gold in our minds.

Olympic Figure Skater Rosalynn Sumners - Wedding
A year before Rosalynn Sumners earned her silver medal at the Olympics, her future husband – athletic talent manager Bob Cain – failed at his attempts to sign her as a client; however, when she was skating in the touring production that he created the following year, they fell in love. Nearly 15 years after that, the pair walked down the aisle as husband in wife in Palm Springs. See more images here.

Olympic Volleyball Player Murphy Troy - Wedding
Blair Tarnutzer and olympian Murphy Troy’s relationship was long distance for some time, as Murphy is a professional volleyball player who played overseas after graduation. While wedding planning, Blair was taking the bar exam while her groom made the Men’s Indoor National Team for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. They took home the bronze medal and months later, he said “I do” in the California desert. See their event here.
