Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will head all the way to Miami Beach to wed longtime fiancee Kijafa Frink in June.
Sources say that the couple are planning a wedding to take place on June 30th. The couple has been engaged since Vick popped the question back in December of 2009, and the couple are finally close to tying the knot. The June 2012 wedding is reported to take place at the Fontainebleau hotel and resort in Miami Beach.
Invitations have already gone out this month to Vick and Frink’s roughly 300 guests, making for a relatively intimate and small ceremony. Guests of the couple reportedly include Vick’s former mentor and former Colts and Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy, Vick’s current coach Andy Reid of the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick’s agent Joel Segal, and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy among other teammates of the quarterback.
Frink has been at Vick’s side through some of the quarterback’s most troubled times. She stood by him during his 2008 dog fighting controversy, for which he received a three-year suspended sentence. Of his behavior on the matter, Vick said, “I want to apologize to the court, my family, and to all the kids who looked up to me as a role model”. Following that case, during Vick’s bankruptcy court proceedings, he provided for Frink’s living arrangements despite selling three of his six homes.
Things are looking up for the couple, as Vick is currently signed the the Eagles under a six year deal with $40 million guaranteed, and $100 million offered over the life of the contract. Frink pays the bills through co-ownership of accessories line and boutique PNK Elephant. The couple have three kids together.
Congratulations from IQ to Michael Vick and Kijafa Frink on their impending nuptials.
