San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates had one hell of a productive off-season -- the future Hall-of-Famer just got married to his longtime girlfriend ... and TMZ has the pics.
Gates -- who will probably be the #1 tight end drafted in your 2011 fantasy league -- tied the knot to model-turned-business owner Sasha Dindayal on July 9 during a lavish ceremony at the Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego.
We're told several Chargers were among the 250 guests -- including defensive stars Shaun Phillips and Stephen Cooper.
But the best part -- THE FOOD!!! Guests were treated to a 5-course meal ... consisting of duck foie gras ... caramelized shallot ravioli in a brandy butter sauce ... braised short ribs and grilled prawns with buttermilk mashed potatoes ... and for dessert -- red velvet wedding cake with marble sponge cake which was FLOWN IN from Trinidad.
After the ceremony, the couple took off to Tahiti for the honeymoon.
A happy tight end ... makes for a happy fantasy team.
