Yesterday in Miami, the Dolphins were up 17-7 over the Browns at halftime. They cruised to an easy 39-17 victory behind Tua’s 3 passing tds and rushing tds from Jeffrey Wilson and Raheem Mostert. But it was what happened before the game that set the tone for the day. A real life  Dolphins Tailgate Wedding.

The bride and groom exchanged vows in full formal attire in the gate 12 lot with Hard Rock Stadium as the backdrop. Someone even brought an Arbor. Some call it a Wedding Arch, but I like the classier tone of calling it an “Arbor”. They did it all, complete with a Officiant and a PA. Gotta make it so that those in the back can hear, too.

Based on the timestamp of that tweet, it looks like the Dolphins Tailgate Wedding went down around 10:30 in the morning.

Fall weddings are always tricky. There’s always going to be groans from people who don’t want to miss the game just because you didn’t want to get married in July or February like everyone else. This is a pretty amazing compromise. You can tailgate before the wedding, and the reception is the game. Obviously the two getting married are hardcore fans, but I’m wondering how many family members responded with “you want to do what?” And I do have a thought. There’s someone standing where the Best Man would normally be standing and I have questions.
