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.
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.
From the size of some of the wedding guests our source saw, it sounds like some of Ryan’s fellow NFL players attended. Before leaving, after valets loaded luggage into a big black Navigator, Ryan appeared and shook hands with all of the staffers.
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 as the weekend approached.
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.
