AJ McCarron, Katherine Webb tied the knot Saturday night

Former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron married Columbus' Katherine Webb Saturday night at Orange Beach United Methodist Church.

Webb posted multiple photos last week, teasing to the Saturday evening nuptials.

Her sister, Laurie Webb, posted this photo on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

One of Laurie Webb's photos from the rehearsal dinner suggested the wedding is happening at Orange Beach, Ala.

Webb was raised in the Columbus-Phenix City area and graduated from Auburn University. She entered the national spotlight when she watched her boyfriend, starting quarterback McCarron, play for the University of Alabama in the Jan. 7, 2013, BCS National Championship. During the game, ESPN’s camera turned to Webb and sportscaster Brent Musburger gave some remarks admiring her beauty.

Since then, she gained a deluge of Twitter followers, appeared in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and covered the Super Bowl for "Inside Edition." She also competed on "Splash," a celebrity diving competition.

Webb first confirmed her relationship with McCarron to the Ledger-Enquirer in late December 2012.

McCarron was drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.
