Stenhouse Jr. revealed on Twitter a year ago that he popped the question after a hike at the famous Cathedral Rock sandstone mountain in Sedona, Arizona. They began dating sometime after his 2017 split from ex-girlfriend and fellow NASCAR driver Danica Patrick.

On Oct. 26, Stenhouse Jr. and Goodfleisch exchanged vows they wrote themselves at Runnymede, a private property situated along the banks of the Ashley River in Charleston, South Carolina.

According to PEOPLE, the ceremony had a “modern glam” theme, complete with a mirrored aisle that they walked down as singles and up again as a married couple. She noted on her Instagram that she wore a long-sleeved dress from Berta Bridal while he sported a look from The Black Tux. They both walked the gorgeous property in Christian Louboutin shoes.

As if being at the two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion’s wedding wasn’t enough of a thrill, fans of motorsports would have seen fellow Cup Series and “Race For The Championship” star Kyle Larson among the six groomsmen. 

Also in attendance were noteworthy NASCAR names like Denny Hamlin, Todd Gilliland, Harrison Burton, Riley Herbst, Myatt Snider, and Zane Smith, according to PEOPLE

Following the wedding, Goodfleisch took to her Instagram to share some of the best shots from the lavish ceremony as well as a video showing a bit of the reception, which took place under a tent. 

“I’m a WIFE,” she captioned one of the posts

Her new husband quickly commented, “You complete me and wow leveled up.” 

The wedding fell right in the middle of the NASCAR Cup Series. Although Stenhouse Jr. did not make the Championship 4, his big day occurred between two major races in the series at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Martinsville. Fortunately, he was able to make it to both and compete his heart out.
