Olympic gymnast Carly Patterson is a new bride after exchanging vows in Dallas, Texas on Saturday (03Nov12).

The 2004 gold medallist wed Mark Caldwell in front of about 250 friends and family members.

Patterson wore a Vera Wang gown and admits there was no fuss choosing it, telling People.com, "My dress was the very first one I tried on. I knew it was the one immediately."

The couple met at a mutual friend's wedding in 2009 and became engaged in January (12).
