Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III married his college sweetheart, Rebecca Liddicoat, on Saturday in Denver, near his spouse's hometown of Boulder, Colorado.

The location was disclosed by Mike Klis of The Denver Post, and two-time Emmy Award-winning reporter Dryol Joyner posted a photo of Griffin and Liddicoat as they prepared to tie the knot:

The 23-year-old signal-caller chose the Denver area out of respect for his bride, but there were unique football ties involved.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan coached the Denver Broncos to two Super Bowls, and he found himself back in the Denver area to support his QB on this wonderful occasion.

Griffin's profile inevitably caused the Internet to be flooded with photos from the wedding, but they were all in good fun.

RGIII was on Twitter throughout the day. Usually articulate and elaborate in the public eye, the 140 characters and sheer excitement kept his thoughts succinct when he described his feelings:

He also retweeted several of the many congratulations that poured in for him—including this one from ESPN's NFL Twitter:

Baylor head coach Art Briles oversaw Griffin's development into a Heisman Trophy winner in college and was in attendance. Briles tweeted a photo with several of his former players and Griffin's teammates, as well as an exclusive shot with the man of the hour:

Briles was spotted with Shanahan as well, per Baylor's official football Twitter page:

Ex-Bears running back Ike Williams served as one of the best men at the wedding, and he was thankful for receiving that honor:

Quarterbacks often take care of the sometimes unheralded men who protect them, and for Griffin, that was no exception even on this day. Redskins offensive lineman Chris Chester tweeted his gratefulness for Griffin seating the O-line and fullbacks at the bar:

Renowned radio personality Rock Newman was also among the notable attendees, and he snapped several pictures. The following photo reveals the scene before the bride and groom made things official:

He then snapped a picture very similar to Joyner's when the ceremony was underway:

Newman's own wife got a picture with Shanahan:

Newman also got a picture of RGIII's first dance with Rebecca and a dance with his mother, Jackie:

It has been quite a past couple of years for Robert Griffin III. He followed up his Heisman Trophy-winning final campaign at Baylor with a magnificent NFL rookie season in 2012. Away from the gridiron, though, Saturday marks what has to be the most important day of his life to date.
