Delle Donne and Clifton are The Knots first same-sex Dream Wedding couple. The Knot, which covers all expenses as part of the promotion, has named a Dream Wedding couple for the past five years. Accepting their invitation was a no-brainer for us, Delle Donne wrote in an email while traveling with her fiancee. Were so grateful for the support weve received. At the end of the day, we are both excited to stand in front of our family and friends and make this commitment. Love is love, and we cant wait to spend the rest of our lives together. The exact date, time and location are to be determined, a spokeswoman for The Knot indicated. Delle Donne, a 2016 Olympic gold medalist, and Clifton met four years ago after a mutual friend introduced them. Clifton was the first to propose, doing so at the same beach where they went on their first date. She attached a ring to the collar of their Great Dane, named Wrigley, and popped the question. Several weeks later, Delle Donne fitted their other dog, Rasta, with a wedding dress and veil.
