Wilson and Ciara pick favorite wedding moments (1:53)

Newlyweds Russell Wilson and Ciara share their favorite moments from their wedding ceremony and how they make their busy schedules work. (1:53)

By now, you're well aware that Super Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson married singer Ciara this summer in a castle ... in England ... with a star-studded wedding party and guest list. But did you know Wilson isn't the only NFL player who tied the knot this offseason? And he wasn't the only one to say "I do" to a celebrity or overseas.

Check out this collection, thanks to their social media accounts, of NFL players who made life-changing commitments, including a couple who had their dog as a witness, two players marrying Olympic athletes, a player with a Harry Potter groom's cake and one player whose daughter is just as famous as he is.

Calvin Johnson: The former Detroit Lions star receiver married Brittney McNorton on June 4 in Detroit. The pair got engaged in March 2015, when Johnson proposed while in Baltimore for the NFL's Ed Block Courage Awards.

Aqib Talib: The Denver Broncos cornerback married Gypsy Benitez on March 26 in Allen, Texas. The wedding extravaganza had plenty of NFL stars in attendance, including Von Miller and Vince Wilfork. How much did it all cost? Talib has an answer.




Damon Harrison: The New York Giants defensive tackle spent the July 4 weekend getting married to Alexis McCroskey and then went to work with his new team instead of taking a honeymoon. Harrison left the Jets after four seasons and signed a five-year deal with the Giants this offseason.




Marquise Goodwin: The Buffalo Bills receiver and Olympian Morgan Sannette Snow said "I do" on Feb. 12 in Colleyville, Texas. The couple met as athletes on the University of Texas track team.

Jeremy Zuttah: The Baltimore Ravens center married Heran Haile in a gym that was converted to a wedding venue because their first choice of venue, Baltimore's city hall, would not allow their dog, Ace, inside. As you can see, they couldn't hold a wedding without their best witness.




Zack Martin: The Dallas Cowboys guard (center) married Morgan Eifert on July 2 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Morgan is quite familiar with NFL life; her brother is Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert. Judging by this Instagram photo, the Martins had a darn good time.

The GOB @thegob70 got married tonight. The WATT @watt65 is an animal. Thank Q

David Johnson: The Arizona Cardinals running back and his longtime girlfriend, Meghan Brock, married on April 8 in Tempe, Arizona. And 2016 keeps getting better for the couple: They recently announced on social media that they're expecting a baby.

Before @meghantara & I go off to our honeymoon paradise. We would like to thank everyone who came out to share the special day with us. I know there's some of you we didn't get around to at the wedding. We apologize for it, and hope to see you soon! Again, Thank you so much. It was such an amazing day for the both of us, and we hope it was for you too. Now let me talk about my beautiful wife. I am so proud and thankful Meghan agreed to marry me (ya see sometimes I'm a handful๐Ÿ˜). She is such an amazing, strong-willed woman. When I saw her for the first time in her gorgeous dress.......... Man, I was in AWE. Feeling as if I was in a fantasy dream. Love you Mrs. Meghan Tara JOHNSON!
