U.S. women's ice hockey captain and Olympic gold medalist Meghan Duggan married longtime Canadian rival Gillian Apps on Saturday. Several members of the U.S. women's team were a part of her bridal party and many others took to social media to share their words of encouragement. Hockey players, soccer players, a bobsledder and more members of Team USA reached out to Duggan via Instagram to show their excitement.



Apps played for Team Canada against Duggan at both the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Winter Games, winning gold both times, as well as at five world championships. She has since retired from international play.

Inspired by their love story and infatuated by the adorable photos, Team USA players and fans also took to Twitter to react to the news.
