Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin got married this past weekend, and like all wedding ceremonies these days, Maclin's had a hashtag-appropriately #MACtrimony17.

"It was a good time," Maclin told the media after the first OTA practice Tuesday.

Maclin met his bride, Adia, while he was still playing for the Philadelphia Eagles (2009-2014).

"We got to know each other back then," he explained. "I almost lost it. I almost let it get away, and then we eventually got back in contact with each other and got on the same page and got engaged last July."

As can be heard in the video, Jeremy and Adia Maclin's first song was Ja Rule's "Put It On Me."

"It's just a song that her and I both enjoyed," Maclin said. "It's a song that, she used to sing that version to me and vice versa, and we thought that it had a lot of sentimental meaning. It back when we first met each other that we both kind of thought that song fit us, so that was cool."

Maclin estimated about 10 or 11 of his Chiefs teammates came out for the wedding.

"It's one of those things in which you come into a situation like I did two years ago now," Macin explained, "and now you're the high-paid guy, and the last thing you want to do is for guys to resent you because of that, which happens in this league, so you just come in and be yourself and they accepted me, and I was able to take some guys under my wing-Chris Conley, Albert Wilson, now Tyreek Hill, some of those guys."

Maclin continued.

"Me and Alex (Smith) have a great relationship, Chase Daniel was here at the time. Me and Tyler Bray have a great relationship, so the list kind of goes on and on. All those guys were there. Travis Kelce, Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware. It really is a big family. A lot of people just say it. This really is a family."

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who also drafted Maclin back in 2009 during his time with the Eagles, also attended the wedding.

"It was big time," Maclin said of Reid being there. "He gave me my first opportunity to play in the National Football League and ever since then, we've remained close. Even when he came here, we remained close and he would send me text messages to me as to what he thought of me as a person, as a football player and to have him there, to have Rick (Burkholder) and Aaron Borgmann, these are guys in which it goes beyond football. Clearly, when that football relationship ends, which it will eventually, we'll always remain friends, and that's the bigger picture here."

Maclin said his favorite moments from the wedding involved getting to watch Tyler Bray dance, and seeing his now-father-in-law, famous saxophonist Gary Bartz play two straight songs.

"To see all my teammates so captivated and everybody there so captivated in what he was doing and how he was playing, I think was probably the highlight of the night."

Above all though, Maclin said, the best memory of the weekend was actually getting married.

"I think my best memory was saying, 'I do,'" he said. "It's one of those things that you dream about, clearly for her but also for me as well. That really is my best friend. I remember that the song she was going to walk down the aisle to came on and I didn't even see her yet. I hadn't seen her or her dad yet and I just kind of shed a few tears because it really does mean something to you. To be able to do that, to be able to share that moment with her, with the one person I wanted to share that moment with."
