Brenna Huckaby has two Paralympic gold medals, and this weekend she got to add another piece of jewelry to her collection: a wedding ring.

The Paralympic snowboarder wed her longtime boyfriend, Tristan Clegg, in an outdoor ceremony at Looking Glass Arch in Moab, Utah. The two live in nearby Salt Lake City with their three-year-old daughter Lilah, who Huckaby says was “literally the star of the show” at the wedding. Huckaby’s teammate Brittani Coury created the flower arrangements for the ceremony.

The couple has been together for more than five years. Clegg was also a competitive snowboarder, and the two met while training. He proposed on top of Snowbird Mountain in Utah early in 2018.
