A handful of well-placed sources have told us that Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan got married over the weekend on the Georgia coast.
One source, whose family owns a place on Sea Island, told us Sunday that she had spotted Ryan leaving The Cloister, the resort on Sea Island, on Saturday night following the wedding.
Sea Island is a private island accessible via guard house only to resort guests, homeowners or people employed on the island. The site of the 2004 G-8 Summit, it’s a good place for a private event.
Update: We have a few more details!
Our source heard the wedding band play “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours),” and got a peek at the reception site. The decor was simple elegance – small, high-top tables with brown cloths and glass hurricanes filled with shells. Lights strung from the two Beach Club buildings over the terrace where the event was held twinkled above the festivities.
Another source says the new Mr. and Mrs. Ryan used the code names “Kevin and Sierra” to throw off suspicion. From the size of some of the wedding guests our source saw, it sounds like some of Ryan’s fellow NFL players attended. On Sunday morning, after valets loaded luggage into a big black Navigator, Ryan appeared and shook hands with all of the staffers. Nice guy!
Yet another source, who was attending a conference on adjacent St. Simons Island this week, told us that a clerk at an establishment down there told her they were getting ready for Ryan’s wedding Saturday morning.
We’re working to confirm this officially, with Ryan’s agent or the team. He said last fall that he and longtime girlfriend Sarah Marshall had gotten engaged, and planned to marry in the off-season. Here is that story.
Best wishes to this nice couple.
