On Monday, Melton posted a pic of herself kissing Wambach on their wedding day, which took place over the weekend.

Along with a pic of Wambach wearing a “Christian Mommy Blogger’s Wife” hoodie, Melton wrote on Instagram, "I love my wife. LOVE WINS.”

A day later, Glennon went into detail about finding love with Abby on Instagram. She said, "When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared. I thought that my fear might be bigger than my courage, and that because of that size difference, I might miss out on my chance at happiness. This was so painful.” After a deep conversation with her friend Martha Beck, Glennon revealed that she decided to “choose joy” over “heartbreak and pain.”

When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared. I thought that my fear might be bigger than my courage, and that because of that size difference, I might miss out on my chance at happiness. This was so painful. One day, I was talking to my dear friend Martha Beck. I told her that losing this love would be painful, but that I was used to learning from pain. And Martha said: "Honey. It's true that God teaches us through pain. But it is also true that God tries to teach us through joy first. You can keep choosing heartbreak and pain, Glennon. But you can also choose joy. God can use that choice too. And I actually believe that God prefers to use joy to teach us." And so, for once, I chose joy. I have lived a long while learning from pain and God, it's been a good teacher. I'm forty one, now. And I'm graduating to joy. I choose joy. You can, too. First the pain. Then the rising. Your courage is bigger than your fear. Love, G (Ms. Doyle-Wambach if you're nasty) @abbywambach @elizabeth_gilbert_writer @marthabeckauthor

The two are currently on the way to their honeymoon. Wambach posted a pic of Melton, writing, "This is her trying to get organized as we are on our way to the airport heading off to our honeymoon. I think she is scared I'm going to take her planner away this week!"

In November, Abby and Glennon confirmed they were in a relationship. On Facebook, Melton wrote, "Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now. So today, I’m going to share with you my new love.” They would get engaged in February.

Before confirming their relationship, Abby ended her marriage to Sarah Huffman and Glennon ended her's to Craig Melton.
