Olympic gold medal-winning skier Picabo Street married John Reeser on Oct. 25, she confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

"It was a beautiful day," Street tells PEOPLE. "I was outside, which I love. The foliage had turned colors. I felt like a princess."

The Christian ceremony took place before 100 friends and family on top of Alabama's Prospect Mountain, in Hanceville. The bride wore a wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier and the groom chose an Ermenegildo Zegna suit.

Street, 37, and Reeser, 31, met two years ago on an airplane and became engaged last spring.

Street plans to divide her time between Utah, where she arranges ski clinics and works as a motivational speaker and TV personality, and Alabama, where Reeser works in the heating and air conditioning business.

Named after a town in Idaho near where she grew up, Picabo Street first joined the U.S. Ski Team in 1989, at age 17. By winning the 1995 World Cup, she became the first American ever to take a season title in a speed event.

In the 1998 Winter Olympic Games hosted in Nagano, Japan, Street won a gold medal in downhill skiing.

This is the first marriage for Street, who has a 4-year-old son, and the second for Reeser, who has a 5-year-old son.
