Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles is officially a Galia Lahav bride. She walked down the aisle to her now-husband, Houston Texans player Jonathan Owens, in a plunging halter gown from the brand with a tiered ruffle skirt. The dress featured a striking open-back silhouette and simple thin straps tied in a neat bow. The 26-year-old star wore her hair in a high ponytail, and finished her look with white ankle-strap stiletto sandals.
Back in March, one month after getting engaged to Owens, Biles posted that she secured not one but two wedding dresses from the iconic bridal brand, with one being the first design she tried on during her fitting. Lahav is renowned for using meticulous sewing techniques alongside fellow in-house designer Sharon Sever, and there are not many gowns that rival their couture work. On Saturday, April 15, Biles picked up her two designs capturing scenes from the final appointment with a mirror selfie. The 26-year-old gymnast opted for an athleisure look for the outing, consisting of biker shorts, a cropped tank, and brown leather trench.
Biles and Owens, 27, tied the knot on the beach at a destination wedding surrounded by their friends and family. In a Q&A posted to Biles’s Instagram stories, the couple revealed their color scheme for the big day, which was gold, white, and champagne. As such, the decor, wedding party, and even some of the guests followed that palette. Throughout the last several months, Biles revealed other details via Instagram, including the Prada satin mini bag with crystals she wore for wedding festivities.
