The bride and groom commissioned florist Layers of Lovely to arrange their bouquets. The wedding itself was coordinated by Green Orchid Events.

The pair got engaged in December 2015 and memorably made headlines after staging their engagement session in Wrigley Field. In 2016, the Chicago Cubs finally ended a century-old drought and nabbed the team’s first World Series victory in 108 years. Delp proudly accompanied the National League MVP on the team’s World Series Parade float in November.

Prior to their wedding on Saturday, Delp thoughtfully recognized her fiance’s eventful year with a fitting birthday cake—complete with a timeline of Bryant’s jaw-dropping accomplishments all set before his 25th birthday. “Planning a wedding and moving in to a new house, yet she still finds time to surprise me with an awesome cake!” Bryant captioned the sweet moment. “@jessica_delp is a keeper! Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!”
