One of the best parts about planning a wedding is getting to choose the place where you and your significant other will say the words, “I do.” Some couples go the traditional route and exchange their vows in the church, while others fly off to Vegas to get hitched.
For 2004 NASCAR Premier Series champion Kurt Busch and his love, polo player Ashley Van Metre, the wedding took place at the beach. And, boy was it beautiful!
According to Ashley’s Twitter page, the lovebirds tied the knot on Saturday, Jan. 7, on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy. The happy bride, who got engaged to Kurt in 2015, posted a photo of the duo’s magical view from where they were staying. She included the caption, “Only unicorns get double rainbows. Today is the day! What a blessing.”
As you can see in the scenic picture above, the pair’s wedding location is a tropical dream come true. Two stunning rainbows overlook the crystal clear ocean. Although Kurt and Ashley kept the details of their wedding to a minimum, FOX Sports reports that their ceremony included 30 lucky guests.
On Jan. 9, Kurt confirmed the couple’s wedding with an image on his own Twitter page.
In the shot above, you’ll see that Ashley’s pretty hand with painted nails rests on Kurt’s. The pair flaunts their stunning wedding rings amid a blue water background. And, it’s so romantic! Kurt writes, “My life completely changed when fate brought us together. So happy to call you my wife.”
Kurt and Ashley’s walk down the aisle comes after fellow NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s New Year’s Eve wedding to Amy Reimann.
Congratulations, Kurt and Ashley!
