This might be the most Buffalo wedding ever.

At halftime of the New England Patriots-Buffalo Bills Week 4 game at New Era Field, Mackenzie Park and Jordan Binggeli, both of Rochester, New York, became the first couple believed to be married during an NFL game.


The wedding had tons of Bills touches. And 71,868 fans — er, wedding guests — as witnesses.

Former Bills great Kyle Williams officiated the ceremony ...

... and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly gave away the bride.

Here’s an up-close view of the event:

Well, isn’t that lovely? Bills legend and Hall of Famer Bruce Smith also was watching the event.

The couple beat out 1,400 other applicants in a contest through the Bills and Reeds Jenss Jewelers. Their first date was at a Bills game in 2008. The groom reportedly proposed by saying, “You intercepted my heart. Let's tackle the world together. Will you marry me?"

The Bills didn’t beat the Patriots on Sunday, but this marriage feels destined to be a winner.
