Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick celebrated his nuptials to longtime girlfriend Kijafa Frink over the weekend with enough pomp, circumstance and security that, “It looked like a wedding for a head of state.”
Guests at the celebration at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach Saturday arrived to find they had to don rubber wrist bands that said “Crazy Love” to enter. Five uniformed police officers patrolled the event at the ceremony and reception in a private ballroom at the megaresort. One guest said, “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Vick went the traditional route and stayed at another hotel before the wedding. He and Frink — who stuck by him when he was sentenced to 23 months in Leavenworth for dogfighting — got a standing ovation after the ceremony, where Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, free agent Plaxico Burress, Vick’s agent Joel Segal and Eagles head coach Andy Reid were spotted.
For the reception, Vick was announced and burst into the room “looking like he was coming out of the tunnel before a game.” His young son, Mitez, walked him down the aisle and his daughters Jada and London were flower girls. Later at the party, guests formed circles around the kids and they each took turns doing “dance solos” with other children in the crowd. “Kids as young as 3, 4 and 5 were getting down,” said a spy.
We’re told the menu included chicken and waffles and a cake that “looked like it was about 9 feet tall. “It was first, first, first class all the way,” said a guest.
On Sunday night, Vick treated close friends and family to dinner at Prime 112 in South Beach. A fellow customer who saw Vick’s group having a hearty meal told us: “He seemed to be the happiest person there, bouncing around his table. He and his new wife, who at times was sitting on his lap, kissed a bunch of times. He was overheard saying how he felt lucky and blessed and was excited for this new part of his life.”Follow @PageSix
