Warriors rookie Jordan Poole was at Chase Center on Saturday. He wasn't getting up shots at the practice facility, which is still closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Standing outside the Warriors' arena, Poole served as a witness for the wedding between Lindsay Hirsch and Dustin Schneider.
Poole, wearing a mask while standing a safe distance away from the bride and groom, was wearing a custom Warriors jersey with the couple's last name and the date of the wedding.
Poole posted on his Instagram Story, and said being there for Lindsay and Dustin's big day was one of the "dopest" things he has been a part of.

So how did this all come together? The San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau said he received an email from the bride and passed it along to the Warriors.
According to The Chronicle, Lindsay and Dustin were supposed to get married at Walt Disney World in Orlando -- ironically, the proposed location for the resumption of the current NBA season. In their search for alternate location, they decided to see if they could say "I do" outside Chase Center. As you can see, their plan worked out.
Got an email from the bride a couple months back and forwarded it to the Warriors. Very cool to see this come together, with Jordan Poole standing in as a witness. https://t.co/ALQUdGjWjd— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) May 23, 2020
“I couldn’t say no to that,” said Poole told The Chronicle's Ann Killion, who attended the wedding.

As it turns out, Poole and Dustin have something in common: They both attended the University of Michigan, Killion wrote.
Not a bad way for Poole to spend part of his Memorial Day weekend.
