The Alicia Sacramone, Brady Quinn wedding happened last weekend and the happy, athletic couple showed off their classic smiles in photos. Alicia Sacramone, a member of the silver medal winning Team USA at the 2008 Summer Olympics, had been dating Brady Quinn since 2007. Quinn was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2007 and has bounced around the NFL since then as a backup quarterback.
The Alicia Sacramone, Brady Quinn wedding was reserved to a few family and friends in an undisclosed location. Photos of the Sacramone, Quinn wedding leaked on Tumblr and Facebook Monday. Alicia Sacramone, now Quinn, was seen wearing a beautiful white wedding dress with her bridesmaids.
Standing next to Alicia, Brady Quinn went with a grey tuxedo and black bow tie. Quinn looked very John Elway-esque in his picture, grinning from ear to ear. The wedding couple looks excited to be finally tying the knot after six years of dating.

Alicia Sacramone has made a lot of noise over the years and not just in the world of gymnastics. Sacramone, now retired, has won four gold medals in the World Championships since she emerged on the gymnastics scene in 2002. But her photos in the ESPN Body issue stirred up quite a bit of controversy. In 2011, Alicia won a tenth medal, even though she was injured, to become the most honored American gymnast of all time.
While Alicia Sacramone is one of the most revered gymnasts ever, Brady Quinn has had a more difficult professional journey. After starring in a resurgent Notre Dame offense in the mid 2000’s, Quinn was drafted number 22 by the Cleveland Browns and only played in 14 games over three seasons. His appearances were underwhelming. In 2010, Brady Quinn was traded to the Denver Broncos where his role as a backup was cemented. Quinn has only played in 10 games since his stint with Cleveland, when he filled in for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012.
The Alicia Sacramone, Brady Quinn wedding is sure to be celebrated by the athletic community. Whether Quinn will continue to pursue his NFL career remains to be seen. With NFL free agency ramping up this week, Quinn is hoping to catch on with a team in need of a back up quarterback.
Congratulations Alicia Sacramone and Brady Quinn on your wedding!
