This was confirmed Tuesday by US-based magazine People.

"I've been looking forward to three things," Tebow said of the wedding. "The first moment I see her in her wedding dress, the first kiss, and the first dance together as man and wife. It's such a special night." 

According to People, Nel-Peters walked down the aisle in a custom-made gown from David's Bridal, a clothier in the US.
