The Bengals second year wide receiver/kick returner got married over the weekend. And you need to see this special moment from the big day.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson became a married man over the weekend.

And while the day was a special one for Erickson and his now wife, Kelsi, they weren’t the only two people who were honored with a special moment on the big day.

Kelsi's sister, Krista was born with Williams Syndrome and Erickson made sure that she had her moment during the wedding, too.

While the family is unsure if Krista will ever get married, Alex broke off from his first dance with Kelsi to also dance one-on-one with Krista for all of the wedding guests to see. In the video below, you can see the special moment and we’re told there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

Toward the end of the video, Alex’s best man cut in to continue dancing with Krista while Alex and Kelsi danced beside them and continued their first dance as a married couple. It was a great moment and part of a wonderful celebration for the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Erickson.

Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel and his wife Tarin as well as former right guard Kevin Zeitler and his wife Sara, were among those with Bengals connections in attendance at the Madison, Wisconsin wedding.
