NEW YORK (April 20) - A Super Bowl championship isn't the only big event this year for New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Manning married college sweetheart Abby McGrew during a sunset ceremony Saturday at the One & Only Palmilla resort on Mexico's Baja Peninsula.

Both The New York Daily News and The New York Post covered the event, with the Daily News providing details from inside the intimate ceremony.

The 27-year-old Manning and 24-year-old McGrew smiled and giggled during the 16-minute ceremony. They stood on a platform in the sand as waves crashed on the rocks behind them.

Manning and McGrew were both students at University of Mississippi when they met. The Daily News reports that Manning popped the question to her during a date in Hoboken last March, and that they chose the resort for their wedding after vacationing there several times.

McGrew carried a bouquet of white roses and wore a white gown with gold embroidering with a large bow and short train in the back. Her six bridesmaids wore champagne-colored strapless dresses.

Manning and his groomsmen wore khaki suits and white roses in their lapels. Manning wore a tie with blue and white stripes, while his groomsmen kept their collars open.

Moments before the ceremony, Eli Manning's brother Peyton, the Indianapolis Colt's star quarterback, wrapped his arm around his brother and whispered words of encouragement to him.

The Daily News reported that the minister looked down at Eli Manning's hands during the ceremony and joked that they were "quite large."

Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon declined to discuss the wedding when contacted Sunday by The Associated Press. Phone messages for Manning's agent Tom Condon and his Giants teammate Shaun O'Hara weren't immediately returned.

Manning has been with the Giants since 2004, and was this year's Super Bowl MVP, leading the Giants to their 17-14 upset win over the New England Patriots. Manning threw 19 of 34 for 255 yards and two touchdowns, including a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds to play.

          Her dress is lovely. She looks great!

          But has anyone noticed a trend with her guests? Note to self: sunscreen for guests' OOT bags. Nice "glow" Peyton. <--- Several of them look that color.

              I was wondering if I missed their wedding.

              Her dress is gorgeous!

              I guess she didn't include sunscreen in her OOT bags!
