And THIS ladies and gentlemen, is how you throw a wedding!!!
With all the negative news surrounding NFL husbands, it's nice to shed some light on one bomb NFL couple. Over the weekend, Cincinnati Bengal's Adriel Jeremiah Green aka "AJ" got married to girlfriend of five years, singer and former Def Jam signee, Miranda Brooke (of the track, "I'm a Hater"). The 26-year-old football star and 24-year-old entertainer met on social media (don't sleep y'all!) back in 2010 and tied the knot in a star-studded winter wonderland themed wedding at Atlanta's luxurious 200 Peachtree venue. Celebs in attendance included AJ's teammates Andy Dalton, Carlos Dunlap and Mohamed Sanu.
It was a Cinderella-esque affair with Miranda changing at least four times throughout the night, but the highlight of the beautiful wedding (aside from that gorgeous six-tier wedding cake) was the couple's first dance, followed by Miranda's dance with her father (who hit the Robot in his Jordans) and Miranda and her bridesmaids, who performed a few routines, including Beyoncé's "7/11."
Talk about turning a wedding into a Hip-Hopera. Hello!
Peep video from the wedding, photos and deets on the couple's love story below:

AJ and Miranda grew emotional as their friends and family made speeches.
And just some fun deets on the two:
How They Met:The Georgia State and University of Georgia alumnis met on Facebook back in 2010 "back when Facebook was hot for people our age," according to Miranda.
How He Proposed:
AJ initially intended to propose to Miranda in a big, public way- but sort of chickened out upon seeing how packed the restaurant was. Aside from his public lifestyle, he's actually a pretty modest "country boy." So, the wide receiver opted for proposing in the privacy of their home instead. After a day of shopping, Miranda racked up on Yankee Candles and upon bringing them home, AJ placed the ring on the wick of one of the candles. Miranda didn't catch the notion the right away and actually thought that the sales assistant dropped her ring on the candle. “I wouldn't call him the most romantic guy in the world. But it was A.J.," Miranda said.
Why We Love Them:
They are just so darn cute! From their matching outfits on the 'gram, to their silly dances, this young couple is proof that friendship and knowing how to have fun together is important keys to maintaining a great relationship.
Why They Are Soul Mates:
AJ once said in an interview, "With her man, it's like she's my best friend. I can talk to her about anything, she's there. So I feel like she genuinely loves me and I trust her."
Miranda also has referred to AJ as her soul mate countless times and even says that although they get ready in separate rooms, they often come out matching. How cute! "[He] does his very best every day to make me feel loved and appreciated. The way he TREATS me is better than any materialistic/monetary gift that I could ever receive! "
By the way, we knew Miranda was gonna kill that "7/11" routine because of this video she posted a few months ago (LOL!)
