Former Olympic figure skater and five-time world champion Michelle Kwan married Clay Pell on Saturday in Providence, R.I.

Pell is director for strategic planning on the national security staff at the White House.

The ceremony was attended by about 200 people, including Olympic champions Brian Boitano, Dick Button and Dorothy Hamill, People.com reports.

At the wedding, "You could feel the love Michelle and Clay have for each other," a guest told People.com. "They are truly a perfect match."

If the name Pell sounds familiar, it is because Clay Pell's late grandfather, Claiborne Pell, was a U.S. senator who sponsored legislation creating the Pell Grant program of federal financial aid for college students.
