Fan-favorite Jeopardy! contestant Amy Schneider just won again.

This time, the win didn’t come from competing on a game show, but in her personal life, when she married her girlfriend Genevieve Davis in a small ceremony at a California Courthouse.

“Genevieve and I are delighted to announce that on Monday, May 9, we were married in a small private ceremony at the Alameda County Recorder,” Schneider wrote on Instagram. “We will still be having a traditional wedding & reception next summer, but our lives have been much too busy this year to get very far in planning it, and we couldn't wait that long to proclaim our love and commitment to each other. Thank you, everyone for your support!”

She also celebrated her love on Twitter.

“A year ago today, I was in LA, waiting to fulfill a dream,” she said of her time on Jeopardy! “The year since has been full of good days, but by far the best one was May 9th, when Genevieve and I got married. Without her, none of the other good days would have happened. I’m so lucky to share my life with her!”

Pictures of the happy couple show them both wearing sleeveless white wedding dresses with flower crowns in their hair. They are beaming with love.

Schneider and Daivs got engaged back in February.

“I have an announcement: Genevieve is no longer my girlfriend... she's my fiancée!!!” Schneider wrote on Twitter at the time. “I couldn't be happier or more proud to spend my life with the very best person in the entire world.”

Schneider, who was the first ever woman to win over $1 million on Jeopardy!, won the show 40 times during her run. She was also the first out trans contestant to qualify for the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

Even though it’s been a year since she was on the show, fans are still following her every move, and hope to see her return on the show for a special episode or tournament.
