Paulina Gretzky flies to Tennessee to prepare for wedding to Dustin Johnson

Paulina Gretzky is back to wedding prepping after celebrating her last days of singledom last month during her lavish bachelorette party in St. Barts. 

The 33-year-old, who is the daughter of retired ice hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky, took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to document her trip to Tennessee. 

Paulina and her pro-golfer fiancé, Dustin Johnson, are expected to tie the knot at Blackberry Farm, a luxury hotel and resort in the Great Smoky Mountains, the New York Post reported.

The bride-to-be was joined by her mother, Janet Gretzky, and her pal Kristina Melnichenko when she flew to Knoxville, which is about a half-hour drive to Walland, where the resort is located. 

Paulina also tagged the event-planning company YSD Events when she shared a photo of the city right before her plane touched down in Tennessee. 

The future Mrs. Johnson was dressed in a white sports bra and matching leggings, topping off her look with a camel coat and white sneakers. 

The group posed for a photo in what appeared to be The Barn, a James Beard Award-winning restaurant at Blackberry Farm.

Another snapshot showed Paulina and Kristina holding glasses of red wine in the backseat of a vehicle. It seemed as though they were enjoying a wine tasting while touring the grounds. 

Paulina has been engaged for nearly a decade and shares two children with her husband-to-be. After all that waiting, it looks like she is ready to go all out for her big day. 

She certainly didn’t hold back when it came to her bachelorette getaway that was held on St. Bars in late February.  

Paulina was joined by eight of her closest pals — including her sister-in-law Sara Gretzky — when she flew to the French-speaking Caribbean island on a private jet filled with swag for her and her party guests.

Paulina documented her entire bachelorette weekend on her Instagram Stories and later shared a throwback photo of them boarding their private jet. 

She posed on the stairs by herself while her friends huddled together on the tarmac together. She captioned the picture ‘P’s Last D,’ which was also the getaway’s official hashtag.

Snapshots and videos from the week-long getaway show the group dancing, singing, and taking down plenty of drinks. But every morning they woke up to fresh-cut fruit, squeezed juices, chia seed pudding, and plates of pastries. 

They also had a raucous dinner La Guérite Restaurant Saint Barthélémy, where Jeremy was filmed dancing on his chair to ABBA’s ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).’

During the trip, Jeremy posted a sweet photo of himself posing with Paulina who was decked out in a pink bikini while on a boat.  

And while Paulina had a great time with her friends, she wasn’t without her fiancé. 

She shared a photo of herself with Dustin, 37, who was also on the island for his bachelor party, though it’s unclear how much time they spent together.

Paulina and Dustin started dating in 2012 and got engaged a year later. They share two sons: Tatum, seven, and River, four.  

She spoke about her longtime engagement on her sister-in-law Sara’s podcast, The Netchicks, last year. 

‘I don’t know if people know if me and Dustin are really married or not. We’re not,’ she reminded listeners. ‘We’re so in love.’

Last April, she lived every bride’s dream when she shopped for the perfect wedding dress with Vera Wang in New York City.

Paulina enjoyed a celebratory dinner with the renowned fashion designer before trying on a number of gowns at her bridal boutique. 

The couple is due to tie the knot this year, though the exact date remains unknown. But if her recent planning is any indication, their big day is coming up soon.
