"Robert always wants to make me happy," Strug happily tells PEOPLE of her husband, whom she met through mutual friends in Washington, D.C. "He's a little old-fashioned. He really courted me, and for a while. To this day, he still gives me flowers on a regular basis."
The reception, held at the Skyline Country Club, featured hundreds of orchids, a fireworks display, and a unique favor for the couple's 200 guests: tea and fresh scones for breakfast.
The bride wore a Pronovias gown, customized with over 5,000 Swarovski crystals and a sweetheart neckline ("it's spectacular," says her wedding planner, Anne Bryan) in a Jewish ceremony with Christian tradition incorporated as well.
"They'll have a Kiddush cup and then a unity candle, so it will be special for both of them," says Bryan.
The couple invited a few familiar faces, too: Strug's Olympic teammate Dominique Moceanu and her former coach, Bela Karolyi.
Guests – and the bride herself – ended the evening on a sweet note.
"I'll be honest: I'm really excited about the cake," says Strug with a laugh. "Remember, I was on a diet for a lot of my life!"
