Once Kortnie met her husband at the end of the aisle, the couple held hands as they prepared to solidify their union.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds walked down the aisle together as guests snapped photos of the blissful couple.

The newlyweds were then whisked off on a boat where they took romantic post-wedding photos.

The lovebirds could barely keep their hands off each other as they put on an amorous display aboard the boat.

Kortnie kicked her bare legs into the air as Jim showered her with kisses.

They were also pictured lovingly gazing at one another and with Kortnie tenderly wrapping an arm around her new husband.

He carried Kortnie’s quilted white purse, a small bottle of Champagne, and another garment over his arm as he followed his bride-to-be with an umbrella in hand.

Kortnie hiked up a bit of her dress as she descended the stairs in her strappy white heels.

‘The best part of the wedding is I now get to spend the rest of my life with Kortnie,’ her new husband said. ‘For the first time in my life, I finally understand true happiness.’

After the ceremony, the newlyweds celebrated with loved ones inside the Colonne Room, a majestic hall containing marble floors and crystal chandeliers.

The menu featured classic Italian food, a pasta course, entree, and dessert. As for their wedding cake, the couple cut into a four-tier cake decked out with an exquisite arrangement of white roses.

This marks the fourth time Jim has tied the knot – he was first married to LeAnn Horton, with whom he shares daughters Hayley and Lauren. They remained friendly after their split, and she heartbreakingly later died of colon cancer in 2015.

In 2008, the athlete walked down the aisle with Allison Jayne Raski, whom he shares two more children with, his son Landon and daughter Sutton.

They finalized their divorce shortly before he married Meghan King in 2014. They share daughter Aspen, five, and four-year-old twin sons Hayes and Hart and finalized their divorce in 2021.

The marriage marks the first time Kortnie, who became Instagram official with Jim back in April 2020, has tied the knot.

The couple first entered the public eye in January 2020 when Meghan revealed she and Jim had a threesome with a friend during their marriage. That third partner was later revealed to be Kortnie. 

Kortnie announced their engagement in August 2021 with a photo of her massive diamond ring.

‘Dear Diary, A month ago, Jimmy asked me to marry him in the most intimate and personal way,’ she began her caption. ‘I said yes! Love, Kortnie.’
