Tinder couple wins free honeymoon after tying the knot on the court of the Atlanta Hawks stadium

Swiping right on Tinder and meeting your future fiancé is the slam dunk we all can hope for.

In 2015, Ben McCleskey and Avery Armstrong did just that when they met at an Atlanta Hawks game during the Hawks’ ‘Swipe Right Night’ promotion.

Fast forward three years and one baby later, and the couple officially tied the knot right where their game of love began — the Philips Arena.

In a ceremony hosted by the Hawks and Philips Arena, the couple married at center court in front of 250 guests, including the Hawks CEO Steve Koonin.

Take a look at the incredible wedding below:

Koonin gave the first toast at the reception, and gushed about the couple:

“From that much-talked about promotion, none of us would have imagined that it would lead to our first wedding on the Hawks’ court. We all know that sports can unite people like few things can and we are happy to consider Avery and Ben Hawks fans and family for life.”

Guests drank and danced the night away at the Courtside Club for the reception.

But the real buzzer finish came when Tinder’s Head of Brand, Rosette Pambakian, appeared on a video message announcing that Tinder would be funding an all-inclusive honeymoon getaway for the couple:

"We want to congratulate Ben and Avery on their marriage. We couldn't be more thrilled that our Swipe Right Night with the Hawks led to such an amazing story and a life-changing match - and we are excited to send them on their honeymoon.”

Talk about the win of a lifetime!
