At the wedding reception, the couple arranged for tables named after LGBTIQ icons. A placard on Table number one said, “Marsha P Johnson. The defender of trans rights.”

When they sliced their wedding cake, the cut revealed rainbow coloured sponge layers.

Before the wedding, Ashlyn spoke to People about the significance of the day.

“I think so much of our support from our family and friends have been through soccer and this is just so much more meaningful, in my opinion, to be celebrated for love and acceptance and inclusion, that’s so major in the world we live in now.”
