In an interview before the wedding, Wozniacki said they chose Italy because they had a lot of fond memories from their vacations there, and as for the main venue, it already had a natural setting, and the newlyweds didn't need to do so much.

The tennis star and her 36-year-old husband met in November 2015 at dinner, a mutual friend introduced them, and two years later in Bora Bora, Lee proposed and afterwards took to Instagram to share the good news of their engagement.

During his speech at their reception, the former Golden State Warriors player said his 28-year-old wife makes him the best version of himself and promised to make her feel special every day.

Wozniacki didn't give a speech, but she shared a picture of the two of them on Instagram looking at fireworks display while standing at the edge of a cliff with the words "Best weekend of my life."

Happy married life to the couple!
