Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek tied the knot on Saturday, marrying Duangpatra Bodiratnangkura – Dang for short – in her native Thailand.
He announced his engagement on Instagram in April, posting a photo of the two of them embracing and a dazzling ring on her left hand saying, “I’m the luckiest man alive.”
Photos have appeared on the social media site this weekend of the bride and groom looking stunning at their elaborate celebration at the Nai Lert Park Heritage Home in Bangkok, a part of Bodiratnangkura’s family estate.
Guests included Canada’s two-time Olympic ice dance champion Tessa Virtue.
Lysacek is a two-time Olympian who won gold in men’s figure skating in 2010, which was the first for a U.S. man in 22 years. He also owns a world title, Grand Prix Final title, two Four Continents titles and two national titles.
Lysacek and Bodiratnangkura were introduced in 2011 by mutual friends and immediately connected, but although they remained close over the years they reconnected in the summer of 2018. He proposed to her in Miami on her birthday, April 1.
