    Love was definitely in the air for some sports studs this past weekend.

    NFL stars Matt Barkley and Robert Griffin III each tied the knot to their college sweethearts on Saturday, and tweeted about the events.

    "Wedding Day! Beyond blessed, thankful and excited to marry the girl of my dreams and my best friend. Praise the Lord!" Barkley, quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles wrote, while Washington Redskins quarterback Griffin said, "The easiest way to say It......BIG DAY!"

    Barkley married longtime girlfriend Brittany Langdon, a fellow athlete who played soccer for four years at Seattle Pacific and before that at Northwood High in Irvine.

    Meanwhile, Griffin made it official with his leading lady Rebecca Liddicoat, holding a ceremony and reception with a number of friends and family at the Denver Four Seasons.

    "I don't want to be melodramatic, but it was really, really beautiful," boxing promoter Rock Newman told The Washington Post. "Just the assured, confident love that they expressed for each other was so admirable, just so real, so authentic. It was all good."

    A collective aw would be appropriate at this time.
