At the end of her bronze-medal finish at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games, nine-time U.S. national figure skating champion and five-time world champion Michelle Kwan skated to "Fields of Gold" as her Olympic swan song.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, signaling a new beginning, she incorporated that same melody into her wedding program.
Kwan, 32, married Clay Pell, 31, director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House, on Saturday at the First Unitarian Church of Providence, R.I., PEOPLE has confirmed.
Pell, a JAG and Lieutenant in the U.S. Coast Guard, was dressed in full uniform for the ceremony. Kwan, who cried while walking down the aisle with her father, Danny Kwan, wore an ivoryVera Wang gown.

Nearly three years after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Olympic ice-skating champ Dorothy Hamill still feels fatigued and suffers some side effects of surgeries and radiation, as well as the multitude of different drugs she's taken.
But the good news: Hamill, 54, is cancer-free, and has been so for two years.
"It's out of my system," the 1976 Innsbruck, Austria, gold-medalist, who's currently training for several upcoming performances, said at Monday's 25th Great Sports Legends Dinner to benefit the Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis, held at Manhattan's Waldorf-Astoria. "I'm here and so far, so good. I'm not feeling great but I'm better."
During the early part of her treatment, Hamill, who was cared for at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, participated in clinical trials for different medications. She now takes Tomaxafen, which is used to reduce the risk of recurrence but produces side effects that leave Hamill "achy."

Olympic ice-skating champ Dorothy Hamill is undergoing treatment for breast cancer at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore, Md.
A rep for Hamill, 51, calls her prognosis very favorable, but says the treatments will require the Olympic gold-medal winner to take time off from headlining the Broadway on Ice national tour, Access Hollywood reports.
Hamill hopes to rejoin the tour on Jan. 16 in Ft. Lauderdale.
