Eli Manning said ‘I do’ to his college sweetheart, Abby McGrew, in a sunset ceremony on the beach in front of the Sea of Cortez Saturday.

Giants star Manning, 27, and McGrew, 24, exchanged vows on a platform in the sand as waves crashed over rocks behind them at the One&Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, reports the New York Daily News.

The bride, in a strapless white gown with gold embroidering, carried white roses and walked down the aisle to an altar covered in pink wildflowers.

McGrew was attended by six bridesmaids in champagne-colored gowns and Manning and his six groomsmen wore khaki suits.

Earlier in the week, Manning hinted to PEOPLE about the private event, saying only that it would definitely involve close friends and family – about 60 loved ones flew to Mexico, according to reports.

Manning’s parents, Archie and Olivia, and his brothers, Cooper and Peyton, were among the guests, who were taken to the nuptials in golf carts.

“Welcome to one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever presided over,” the minister said to begin the evening, according to the News. The ceremony took about 15 minutes and a reception followed on the beach.
