The pair officially got married back in June (before Phelps won his 23rd Olympic gold medal in Rio) in an intimate backyard ceremony in Tempe, Arizona with only five people present. Their destination wedding in Cabo ― with 50 guests, a mariachi band, an exquisite Julie Vino gown and party that went until 2:30 a.m. ― was the real deal.
“When we talk about our wedding, we mean our Cabo wedding in October with our parents, our siblings, our bridal party, and a few people who played an integral part of our relationship while we were together,” the former Miss California told Brides magazine.
The couple’s now 7-month-old son Boomer acted as the ring bearer, donning a Burberry ensemble for the occasion while holding a little bag with the rings.
“I think he kind of sucked on the bag a little bit while he was standing up there!” Johnson said.
The newlyweds also told Brides they live a “healthy, competitive” life together.
“Every morning when we wake up, whoever says, ‘I love you more’ first wins for the day — and we’ve been doing this for a couple of years now,” Johnson said.
Between a baby, a wedding and a record-breaking Olympic games, 2016 has been a big one for Phelps.
“It’s been a huge year,” he told Brides. “We just decided to do everything with a bang, and cram it all into a year! It was a hectic couple of months, but looking back, it was a great couple of months.”
