WATCH: NFL Star Celebrates "Walking Dead"-Themed Wedding

It turns out Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is a really big fan of "The Walking Dead" -- to the extent that he recently had his entire wedding party done up like zombies for the day of the ceremony.

In an ESPN video documenting the day of his marriage to longtime girlfriend Risalyn Burzynski, Williams declared his love of "The Walking Dead," and explained why he chose to incorporate the zombie series into his wedding.

"I'm a huge Walking Dead fan," Williams said in the video. "I wanted to do engagement photos with us being chased by zombies and we didn't have time because it was during season and we didn't have that opportunity, so [Risalyn] was like, 'How are you going to pull that off?'"

Well, he certainly pulled it off -- without objection from his bride. "He didn't have to convince me," Burzynski said. "He really had to convince the bridesmaids, and then he said they had to do it because they're bridesmaids."

Check out the ESPN video documenting Williams and Burzynski's special day below:
