On the New Year’s Eve, soccer star Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco tied the knot in a lavish ceremony. They were a perfect match both on and off the field.
The couple, who got engaged last December, rang in the New Year’s with style, trading vows before not less than at least 180 visitors at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Santa Barbara, California.
Morgan was reported to say that the feeling of being surrounded by both family and friends in such a beautiful location and on an auspicious occasion such as the New Year’s was truly magical for them. Carrsco added to the valor by saying that they are very happy, excited and grateful to start their new life as MR. and Mrs. Carrasco. He truly married his best friend.
The lady wore a lovely gown by Berta Bridal, then exchanged into a custom Amsale dress for the reception, where the pair moved to Jack Johnson’s “Better Together.” But what about Carrasco? He was seen sporting an Armani tux.
The wedding incorporated two signature drinks: a Moscow mule and a bona fide Cadillac margarita. What’s more, to pay tribute to Carrasco’s childhood, visitors delighted in a Mexican-American supper that was served family-style and incorporated a quesadilla bar and homemade churros. They commended well into the night with a live band emulated by a DJ. The celebrations even incorporated a balloon drop at midnight.
Morgan is one of the greatest stars on the U.S. national group. She helped the USWNT complete second at the 2011 Women’s World Cup and assumed a key part on the team that won gold at the 2012 Olympics. The 25-year-old additionally helped the Portland Thistles lift the National Women’s Soccer League championship in 2013.
Morgan led the U.S. to gold at the time of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The U.S. just about made it to the finals because of a spur of the moment goal made in extra time by the 25-year-old striker in a match against Canada. She was caught sporting a huge smile and saying that she never knew the feeling that she felt on that day while scoring the goal. It was exhilarating.
Carrasco’s no lightweight, either: The 26-year-old is a star midfielder for the Major League Soccer team the Houston Dynamo.
The two met at the University of California, where both were parts of the Golden Bears men’s and women’s soccer teams, separately, and were engaged in on Dec. 9, 2013.
