Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens Are Officially Married
Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are married! On Saturday, Biles and Owens shared photos of their special day, taken by Rachel Taylor of Raetay Photography, on their respective Instagrams, alongside sweet captions celebrating their first day as husband and wife.
“I do 🤍 officially owens 🤍,” Biles wrote on Instagram alongside a carousel featuring her in a white tiered wedding dress and Owens in a tan suit. The happy couple are beaming in their photos as they exchange their vows and share two kisses. The NFL player shared a similar set of photos on his own grid, which he captioned, “My person, forever ❤️💍.”
The photos reveal the couple had a legal ceremony at what appears to be a courthouse, but they still have a big wedding to come where they’ll be surrounded by their friends and family. The couple – who first got together in 2020 – got engaged in February 2022, and they’ve been sharing their wedding planning process ever since. On April 15, Biles even shared that she and Owens had obtained their marriage license.
In a 2022 interview with E! News, Biles revealed details about what her wedding guest list will look like. “We have some of my teammates that I’d be inviting. But other than that, it’s really close family, friends and people that have watched us grow throughout our relationship and will share that love on that day,” Biles said.
While answering a series of questions on her Instagram Stories in August 2022, Biles said the most stressful thing about wedding planning has been “locking in the date and getting the venue, but once that happened, everything has been smooth sailing.” She added, “I know exactly what I want, I have a great wedding planner.” For Owens, it’s been putting the guest list together.
On the flip side, Biles has really enjoyed “seeing the vision come to life.” She says, “That for me has been the most exciting, and putting like, my dream wedding board together.”

Simone Biles’s Wedding Dress
Less than a month after getting engaged, Biles found her dress while shopping at Galia Lahav’s flagship store in LA. “I had my best friend and my mom there and then once we found the dress, we did FaceTime Jonathan’s mom so that she could see it. But it was just a very, close tight knit group,” Biles told E! News. “I didn’t show all my friends because we still wanted it to be special for everybody. It was something I didn’t think I would go with, which was so crazy because I came in with a list of my likes, what I want it to look like and then I kind of did the complete opposite of that. But it was a fun experience. I really enjoyed it.”
The Wedding Venue
While they were legally married in a courthouse, Biles and Owens are having a beach wedding, though details about the location are still under wraps.
