U.S. soccer star Carli Lloyd married her high school sweetheart Brian Hollins during an intimate wedding in Puerto Morelos, Mexico over the weekend.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist exchanged ‘I Dos’ on Nov. 4 in front of 75 of her and Hollins' closest friends and family, The Knot reported.

According to the weddings website, Lloyd, 34, wore a strapless white gown from couture bridal designer Matthew Christopher while her five bridesmaids wore Amsale dresses from Bella Bridesmaids.

The World Cup winner shared some sweet pre-wedding photos on Instagram, including one of her kissing Hollins, who is a professional golfer.

“#HeadOverHollins,” she captioned the post on Thursday Nov. 3.

And while she is not in training camp with the U.S. women’s national soccer team, it doesn’t mean that she is not keeping up to her impressive work ethic.

To start off her special day, Lloyd went on a run along a beautiful beach.

“I may not be preparing for a game but it still doesn't stop me from getting a run in on the morning of my wedding,” she captioned her workout photo.

Lloyd and Hollins got engaged in January 2013 after 15 years of dating and decided they wanted to get married after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

She told The Knot in a November 2015 interview that she was a “low-key bride” and wanted a destination wedding.

“I’m not really that difficult. I just want to have a good time with everybody, I just want to have a good night,” she said. “I want my hair and makeup to look great [and] my dress to be beautiful. But other than that, I’m not too particular.”
