There’s a newly-married WNBA power couple in the house!
This weekend, the public silence surrounding Courtney Vandersloot and Allie Quigley’s romantic relationship was broken in the best way, as details (and photos!) emerged that #VanderQuigs were wed in Seattle — which is just north of Vandersloot’s hometown of Kent, Washington — on Thursday.
Their Chicago Sky teammates Diamond DeShields and Gabby Williams attended the wedding and seemed to mirror WNBA fans’ collective feelings toward the nuptials:

Las Vegas Aces center Carolyn Swords was there, too:
And so was Gonzaga head coach Lisa Fortier, who was an assistant coach for the Zags during Vandersloot’s college career in Spokane:
Such a beautiful wedding celebrating two amazing women. Loved hearing the stories about them both and catching up with the old Zags❤️ Congrats @Sloot22 & Allie #vanderquigs #powercouple pic.twitter.com/5yiGvnYsBt— Lisa Mispley Fortier (@FortZagWBB) December 29, 2018
Of course, with WNBA free agent rumors kicking up with the onset of the new year, this could fuel speculation that either Quigley or Vandersloot might not be on the Sky next year.
This past season, the league’s other married couple — the Phoenix Mercury’s DeWanna Bonner and the Indiana Fever’s Candice Dupree — played against each other for the first time since their wedding in 2016. Bonner and Dupree were previously teammates in Phoenix for six seasons.
Until any of those business matters are addressed, though, let’s all just sit back and bask in the glory that this union has blessed us with. Congratulations to the happy couple!
