Brazilian women really love dancing, particularly Salsa, and they are not afraid to show off their voluptuous yet toned figures while dancing many a forbidden dance!
For whatever reason, there is no question that men love Brazilian women.
But when it came to their Saturday night wedding – which the couple confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE – Olympic ice dancers Charlie White and Tanith Belbin opted for a more subdued, elegant affair.
With White’s brother-in-law Todd Weishaus officiating, the pair, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, said their “I do’s” before 130 friends and family surrounded by greenery inside the enclosed glass Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfield, not far from the suburban Detroit rink where they first met in 1998.
“She was the most beautiful girl at the rink,” says White, 27, who won the 2014 gold medal with skating partner Meryl Davis and then went on .
“I think probably every guy had a crush on her.” Together since 2009, the couple celebrated their vows with a dinner of filet mignon and shrimp cremosi, followed by a three-tier vanilla cake layered with raspberry curd and vanilla buttercream.
She and White both just completed a Stars on Ice tour, and White continues to skate professionally and speak as an ambassador for the sport.
They got engaged during a vacation in Hawaii last year.“We were three to four hours into a pretty treacherous hike by the time we reached this beautiful waterfall,” she says.But the long climb had led to slips and scrapes, and spotting the pool of water, she says, “I had to go rinse out my wounds.” That’s when White scampered to join her and began to kneel on the slippery rocks.Belbin, 30, wore an ivory strapless A-Line gown by Modern Trousseu, with a pink ombré skirt and sweetheart neckline.Her maid of honor was fellow retired ice dancer Lauren Fenft, with bridesmaids that included White’s three sisters and his skating partner Meryl Davis, all wearing “whatever dress they wanted in any shade of pink,” says the bride.“His commitment to make a difference in this world is so inspiring, and being around him just made me feel like I wanted to be the best version of myself as well.
