Rennie Curran, who played with Atkins at UGA and is now a motivational speaker, posted many lovely photos with touching messages like this one:

"Geno protected me from offensive linemen for three years straight during my years at UGA and now I'm proud to celebrate this MAJOR moment in his life! Love you man!"

The ballroom was beautiful!

A friend posted an image of this magical moment:

This one's a little bit blurry but still a fun photo:

What a fun night!

Looks like Tony Conway was their event coordinator. He's the guy Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry turn to for fabulous festivities, too!

By the way the groom posted this adorable video of him and Kristen getting engaged. What a sweet surprise!

And he was counting down the days to "I Do!"

Cheers to the happy couple!
