happenには"when something happens, there is an event, especially one that is not planned"(LDOCE)という定義があります。「計画されていない出来事」というのがこの記事でも言えるのではないでしょうか。

よってここでのthe marriage had indeed happenedは、「結婚式は実際にトントン拍子に執り行われた」といったニュアンスだと思いました。(Minnesota)

It looks like Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevens indeed got married

I think we can now safely say that U.S. soccer star Hope Solo and former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens appear to have gotten married this week, following through on their planned wedding Tuesday evening despite spending the day at Kirkland Municipal Court for Stevens’ domestic violence arrest.

By Tuesday night, there were already reports that the marriage had indeed happened, as KJR radio’s Dave “Softy” Mahler reported via Twitter that all the court proceedings didn’t change Solo’s and Stevens’ plans. Just an hour before, one of Solo’s national team teammates, goalkeeper Jillian Loyden, had tweeted that she was “happy to witness such an amazing celebration of real love,” suggesting the wedding had happened but not giving enough details for the rest of us to be certain.
