The athlete’s better half donned a black leather jacket, a flannel button-down shirt, a pair of sunglasses and dyed-blonde hair.

Rippon told the publication earlier this year, ‘I’m excited to marry JP because he’s just the best. He’s kind, he’s funny, and he’s just as beautiful on the inside as he is on the out (which is a lot). He’s my cheerleader and I’m his. I just love him a lot.’ 

Getting the rings from Finland meant something to the couple too. Rippon explained that he enjoyed carrying a part of the European nation with them at all times. 

‘We bought the rings together and picked them up at the same time,’ Rippon said. ‘I really wanted us to have rings from Finland. I thought it would be fun to have a little piece of Finland with us all the time as JP is getting ready to move to Los Angeles hopefully by the end of the year.’
