Matt Murray didn't exactly have a Best Man at his wedding, he opted for Man's Best Friend.

The Pittsburgh Penguins goalie eloped with fiancee Christina last week, flanked by their two Newfoundland dogs, Beckham and Leo.

The groomsmen, well groomsdogs, wore leafy green necklaces as the two-time Stanley Cup champion and his bride were married in a small ceremony with a forest backdrop.

The Murrays shared a few photos and a video of the ceremony on Instagram.

Beckham and Leo are not only quite large, literally, but they are also big on social media. Their Instagram account has over 14,000 followers.
