This Couple Really Loves Football — and Their Wedding Proves It

This couple really knows how to stick to a theme! I guess it’s easy when you’re both die-hard football fans (she’s a Giants fan; he’s a Red Skins supporter). Everything from the boutonnieres to the cake toppers and even the wedding sign announcing the bride’s walk down the aisle were inspired by this couple’s shared love of the game. But they even went a step further. Rather than exchanging traditional vows, the couple wrote their own:

“From preseason through the play-offs and Super Bowl; in good health and injury, despite tackles and fumbles; whether the New York Giants win or lose, I promise to support and always love you in our game of marriage. And take you as my wife.”

This couple’s game-day-inspired wedding by Look Wedding Photography is a touchdown. Here’s why:

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
