On Sunday night, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard officially went off the market. He tied the knot with his girlfriend, supermodel Chanel Iman, in a Los Angeles ceremony. And as you’d expect, they both looked thrilled and totally flawless.

And whenever an NFL player gets married, there’s a good chance at least one other NFLer is in the wedding party. Let’s take a look at who Shepard had standing at his side when he said “I do.”


It probably wouldn’t shock you to find out that every dude in that picture is a football player of some stripe, either NFL or college. But did you spot the second Giants player in that pic? On the far right, with hair that almost looks like it’s part of the flowers above his head?

It’s Shepard’s Giants teammate Odell Beckham Jr.! He wasn’t just an attendee at this wedding, he was part of the actual ceremony. And looking mighty sharp in that tux. In fact, everyone on both sides of the wedding party looked incredible. But most importantly, it looks like they’re having an absolute ball together.


Of course, the bride and groom looked positively radiant. And it wouldn’t do for a supermodel like Chanel Iman to wear just one stunning dress to her own wedding. She had a dress picked out just for the reception. And Shepard wasn’t left out! He had a jacket saved for the dinner and dancing portion of the evening.


She looks gorgeous, he looks handsome, and they both look so, so happy to be together. Especially during their first official dance as a married couple.


I’m not the only one who expected OBJ to jump onto the floor during their dance and catch a football with his fingertips, right? Is it just me? It’s probably just me.
