Deangelo Williams’ Walking Dead-Themed Wedding
Steelers Baller Deangelo Williams is known to be all about that family man life. Now, he’s made it official with his fiancee Risalyn in the most nerdy and cute way possible — with an entire wedding based on his and his lady’s all-time favorite show, “The Walking Dead.”

Walking Dead fans are known to be frightfully loyal, but Deangelo Williams has taken that to new heights.
The Steelers running back had his entire wedding party made up by professionals to look like zombies from the popular AMC series.
Becoming a ‘walker’, as they are known, was a dream for Williams, who said his wife, Risalyn, was just as excited as he was.
‘I’m a huge Walking Dead fan and I know the wedding day is typically for the woman or for women, so the whole entire wedding party are zombies and we get an opportunity to flex our Walking Dead muscle,’ Williams said.
‘He didn’t have to convince me,’ Williams’ wife Risalyn said. ‘He really had to convince the bridesmaids.’
The groom and his bride brought in a professional make-up artist to turn their entire wedding party into ‘walkers.’
‘Not only did I become a Walker, but I became a husband,’ Williams says.
Willaims worked with ESPN to create a video about the affair.
He said he initially ‘wanted to do engagement photos with us being chased by zombies’ but didn’t have time because he and his wife got married during the football season.
Awww. What do you think? We realize that most brides prefer a little more glamour on their wedding day…so is this #RelationshipGoals or no?
