What is … an award-winning wedding announcement?
Jeopardy! champion Amy Schneider shared on social media that she tied the knot with Genevieve Davis on May 9 in a small private ceremony at the Alameda County Recorder in Oakland, Calif. Though the couple are planning a traditional wedding and reception for next summer, they couldn't help saying "I Do" to each other even sooner.
"Our lives have been much too busy this year to get very far in planning [the wedding]," Amy, the winningest woman in Jeopardy! history, captioned her Sept. 27 Instagram post. "And we couldn't wait that long to proclaim our love and commitment to each other. Thank you, everyone for your support!"
In photos posted on social media, Amy gave an inside look of her special day, where she and Genevieve dressed in white gowns for the occasion and topped off their bridal attire with floral crowns and pearl jewelry. The couple glowed with joy as they shared a kiss and hugged each other. See their wedding photos here.
Amy, who will be complete in the Tournament of Champions this fall, wrote on Twitter that a year ago she was in L.A., "waiting to fulfill a dream."
"The year since has been full of good days, but by far the best one was May 9th, when Genevieve and I got married," she tweeted. "Without her, none of the other good days would have happened. I'm so lucky to share my life with her!"
Amy and Genevieve have been engaged since February when they both proposed to each other.
"She said yes! Well, actually I said yes, but then I wanted to propose too, so she said yes as well lol," Amy wrote at the time. "I couldn't be happier or more proud to be marrying the very best person in the entire world, and I'm so glad to be sharing my life with her. It's great to be able to introduce her to people as 'Genevieve, my fiancée.'"
Now, the Jeopardy! champion can introduce her as Genevieve, my wife.
