What a year it's been for Robert Griffin III. The Heisman Trophy winner went into Washington with the weight of the world on his shoulders and somehow managed to deliver, winning the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year Award while leading the Redskins to their first division title since 1999.
The year ended on a sour note as Griffin III had to leave Washington's wild card game after injuring his knee, but he is hoping to start the season on the field for the Redskins.
But before that happens, Griffin III had some business to attend to. On Saturday he married his fiancee, Rebecca Liddicoat, in her hometown of Denver. The two met at Baylor and were engaged in October 2010.
Here's a look at the happy couple on their special day and other notable occasions the past few years:
Washington coach Mike Shanahan, owner Daniel Snyder, backup quarterback Kirk Cousins and Baylor coach Art Briles were among the guests. Shanahan is very familiar with Denver, having won two Super Bowls as coach of the Broncos from 1995 to 2008. According to the Denver Post, the rehearsal dinner was held Thursday at Shanahan's Steakhouse.
Briles, who coached Griffin at Baylor, tweeted this photo with the 23-year-old:

Griffin wasn't the only young NFL quarterback to get married Saturday. Former USC star and current Philadelphia Eagles backup Matt Barkley also wed his fiancee, Brittany Langdon.
