The couple, engaged since August of 2014, had their first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” reports People.

While Griner and Johnson look happy as can be in the wedding photos they posted on Instagram, there relationship took a dark turn just two weeks ago when they were both arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after a fight between them turned physical, according to the AP.

Griner accepted a plea to enter domestic violence counseling, while Johnson volunteered for counseling. Once Griner completes mandatory counseling the charges against her will be dropped, according to USA Today. 

In a statement following the arrest, Griner said, "It is never OK for an argument to turn physical. "This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously."
