Wedding themes are typically the brainchild of the bride-to-be, but this post-apocalypse-theme wedding had Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams’ name written all over it.

The NFL player took his fandom for AMC’s Walking Dead to the next level when he incorporated zombie elements to his wedding shoot.

DeAngelo and Risalyn Williams turned their Memphis wedding into a dope scene straight out of the hit show, Walking Dead.

The running back originally wanted to bring this Walking Dead concept to life for their engagement photos, but due to the demands of football season they push it back to their wedding day.

His wife, Risalyn Williams was supportive of his desire to play out his fandom in real time. “He didn’t have to convince me. He really had to convince the bridesmaids,” she explained.

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.

The couple was married last month in Memphis.  

Congrats to the beautiful couple!
