Newlywed Paulina Gretzky has shared a glimpse into her very lavish wedding to Dustin Johnson – capturing the couple’s first dance and teary-eyed vows, as well as the moment she walked down the aisle and Johnson’s touching reaction to seeing his bride-to-be.

The model, 33, and the athlete, 37, said their ‘I do’s’ at luxury hotel and resort Blackberry Farm in Tennessee on April 23.

Now, Paulina has posted a video montage from the glamorous wedding, which gave viewers an inside look at the incredible venue that they tied the knot in, as well as the extensive glam prep that went into making her look picture perfect for the big day.

‘Mr. & Mrs. Johnson,’ she captioned the one-minute video. 

One clip in the montage showed Paulina sitting in a chair while a team of four people worked simultaneously on her hair and makeup.

Another featured an emotional Paulina and Dustin exchanging their vows in front of their close friends and family, including the bride’s hockey legend father, Wayne Gretzky.

‘Paulina, I take you be my best friend, my faithful partner, and my one true love,’ Dustin said.

‘Dustin, I give you this ring, this symbol of my commitment – to love, honor, and respect you,’ Paulina responded.

Elsewhere in the video, Paulina could be seen walking down the aisle alongside her father, as Dustin appeared to become overwhelmed with emotion. He wiped away tears as he grinned from ear to ear at his future wife.

Other clips featured the couple – who were engaged for more than nine years and share two sons together – having their first dance surrounded by a sea of flowers and candles.

The pair wed under a tent built on Blackberry Farm – which has a nightly rate starting at $1,045 – before moving to another tent for the celebration afterwards. 

Paulina donned a stunning, see-through Vera Wang gown with a plunging neckline while tying the knot with her athlete beau. 

The sheer figure-hugging number was covered head to toe in crystals; she wore an ivory bodysuit underneath to keep her assets hidden. 

She previously showed off the sparkling dress in a picture posted to her Instagram, which showed her kissing her new husband in the gown while surrounded by white flowers and blooming trees.

Stunning setting: Paulina and Dustin waited nine long years to tie the knot - so it should come as no surprise that they went all out for their big day, sparing no expense on what was described by one lucky guest as the 'Met Gala of weddings'

She captioned the post with the wedding date – April 23, 2022 – and tagged fashion designer Vera, as well as her hairstylists Riawna Capri and Violet Teriti, hair colorist Adriana Pinto, stylist Keith Lissner, and makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, among others. 

She also shared a glimpse of the dress while posting a video of Mario – who is well known for working with celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, and Jennifer Lopez – putting on her glam, which she captioned, ‘A real artist @makeupbymario.’

For the reception, Paulina switched into a silky, charmeuse gown, which was accented by intersecting crystal straps.

Her blonde locks were left loose, with curls flowing around her face. As for her makeup, she opted for a natural look, using a soft pink lip color and a smoky eye. 

Dustin rocked a black tuxedo for the ceremony, before he switched into a gray look for the party.

The couple’s nearest and dearest also shared some snaps from inside the over-the-top celebration on social media, which included several different photo ops, stunning floral arrangements, and plenty of dancing. 

Dustin and Paulina’s big day was attended by a slew of their famous friends, including Summer House’s Paige DeSorbo and Craig Conover, as well as Southern Charm star Austen Kroll.

The happy couple’s families were also in attendance – with the bride’s mother, Janet, posting a touching snap from the event, which showed proud dad Wayne, 61, getting emotional while waiting to walk his daughter down the aisle.

Wayne looked dapper in a tuxedo as he stood with tears in his eyes. 

‘Wayne waiting for his little girl to appear for her and Dustin’s big day,’ actress Janet captioned the photo, before revealing that her daughter’s wedding day – April 23 – was actually the same date that Paulina’s grandparents tied the knot. 

‘4/23/22 which happen[s] to be the same day that [Wayne’s] own parents [Walter and Phyllis] married,’ she added.

Her dad gave a speech during the wedding, calling it ‘the most incredible three days that he’s ever had.’

‘And I’ve had a lot of fun,’ he added.

Elsewhere, guests revealed some of the special touches that Paulina and Dustin arranged for their big day – with many of them taking full advantage of the numerous photo ops that were littered throughout the tented event. 

Social media clips showed several guests posing in a 360° video booth, while other images captured several of the couple’s friends standing in front of the stunning backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The wedding also featured a beautiful flower wall for guests to snap a picture in front of, as well as a extravagant archway that featured a neon sign which read, ‘No regretzkys’ – a clever play on Paulina’s maiden name.

She has yet to reveal whether she is planning to change her surname to Johnson, now that she and Dustin are officially married, after being engaged for almost a decade.

Dustin and Paulina first met in 2009, but they didn’t start dating until 2013.

‘I don’t know if you can call it a date since my dad tagged along,’ she later told Golf Magazine of their first date. ‘That’s how it goes in our family.’

The pair were linked in the beginning of that year, and they got engaged soon after, with Paulina – who has worked as a model, singer, and actress – gushing that she had ‘never been happier’ after he popped the question in August 2013.

Then, in September 2014, the sports star and the actress announced that they were expecting their first child together. She gave birth to a son – named Tatum Gretzky Johnson – on January 19, 2015.

‘Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning,’ he said in a statement at the time.

‘Both Paulina and the baby are healthy, resting comfortably, and in great spirits! We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received and plan to release further details in the coming days!’

After the arrival, Paulina couldn’t stop gushing about Dustin’s parenting to People Magazine.

‘Dustin’s the best dad. He’s my best friend. He’s been so supportive with me and we’re just there for each other,’ she said.

Their second son, River Jones Johnson, arrived in June 2017, with Paulina writing at the time, ‘I’m so thankful for my family and the new addition.’

In 2018, the couple faced trouble in paradise when rumors started to spread that they had split.

At the time, Paulina had deleted all of her photos with Dustin from Instagram, but she soon cleared the air on Twitter.

‘Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you for your love and support.’ 

Her dad gave a speech during the wedding, calling it 'the most incredible three days that he's ever had.' He added: 'And I've had a lot of fun'

It appeared that the couple was still going strong in December 2020 because she was the first to congratulate Dustin after he won the PGA Masters.

She ran onto the field and gave him a big smooch as soon as he landed the victory, with him telling People at the event that she is ‘such a bigger supporter’ of his.

‘Obviously with golf or any professional athlete, or even a business, you got to have somebody to support you,’ he said. 

‘I’ve spent a lot of time away from home, or at the golf course, or traveling on the road, whatever it is.

‘So you need that special person, especially with the kids, she does a great job taking care of everything else so all I got to do is worry about golf.’ 

He also told Golf Week, ‘For me, golf was always the most important thing. And now, it’s Paulina and the kids.

‘And they’ll always be the most important. Obviously, I love the game of golf, competing and playing. But they’re the most important thing.’

Nightly rates for rooms at Blackberry Farm start at $1,045, and a three-night minimum is required for all stays, according to the website.  

Rock legend Kid Rock, 51, performed at the wedding for the happy new couple, covering Chris Stapleton’s Joy of My Life.

‘You are the joy of my life,’ the newlywed model wrote on Instagram afterwards, alongside a clip of the special performance. ‘Thank you Kid Rock.’ 

Paulina's sister-in-law, Sara, shared several sweet snaps from the weekend, including some of herself and her partner posing in front of an archway that had the words 'No regretzkys' written in neon on it

The Bawitdaba singer is friendly with both Dustin and Paulina’s legendary father, Wayne, having been spotted playing golf together in Pebble Beach in the past.

The ceremony took place under an elegant white tent erected on the property’s spacious lawn.

Their wedding celebrations lasted for many days, beginning with a beautiful dinner on Thursday night, after the couple arrived in Tennessee from their home state of Florida via a private jet. 

Paulina shared plenty of glimpses into her big weekend before tying the knot, from her and Dustin’s flight to Knoxville to their welcome dinner later that night. 

But while she happily documented much of the build-up to the big day on her Instagram, it seems she wanted to spend the ceremony and reception living in the moment, and she refrained from posting too many images and videos on her social media. 

The party appears to have carried on into the wee hours of the morning, with the bride’s sister-in-law Sara sharing a late-night snap of herself and Paulina, along with some friend, all wearing hotel slippers while sitting on the floor. 

‘The after hours laughs,’ she captioned the pic, before posting a photo of the incredible fast food spread that guests enjoyed at the end of what appears to have been a very long night. 

Sara’s photo showed burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, and grilled cheese sandwiches laid out on Blackberry Farm napkins.
