“I’m a huge Walking Dead fan,” Williams, 33, said in a video shot by the ESPN. “I wanted to do engagement photos of us being chased by zombies and we didn’t have time because it was during season and we didn’t have the opportunity, so [my wife, Risalyn] was like, ‘How are you going to pull that off?’” he said.

Raislyn also got into the spirit with the complete makeup. But, she said that DeAngelo Williams had to convince the bridesmaids for becoming zombies, and they had no option but to relent.

Williams’ “Walking Dead” themed wedding gave every one of his guests a chance to laugh and have lots of fun. The player added that it gave them a chance to step outside their “comfort zone and put on our acting skills.”
