This diehard Packers-loving groom said “I do” to the love of his life, Marie Packer, in a Green Bay-themed wedding on June 17.
Ryan Holtan-Murphy said it was a “no brainer” to take his wife’s last name.
“We’re the Packer family now,” he proudly told ABC News.
The couple tied the knot at Willis Tower in Chicago with elaborate Packers decorations, mostly arranged by the groom.
“I kept most things a surprise form her, but she knew about the mailbox because we ordered that together,” Holtan-Murphy, 41, said.
The groom even surprised his bride with a Green Bay-themed suit after the ceremony.
“I ordered it three months ago and have been hiding it under the bed in our guest room. She was a lot harder to find on the dance floor once I showed up in the suit,” he said with a laugh. “She’s a great sport. She’s a lot of fun.”
Packer, 38, said she was “surprised, but not surprised” when her husband came out in the suit, which she now knows was his pièce de résistance from the wedding.
“I was waiting for something,” she recalled. “I was thinking, ‘This is a lot more toned down than I was expecting.’ Everyone was in black tuxedos and everything and I was like, ‘Where is the green and gold? I know it’s around here somewhere and he just hasn’t busted it out yet.’ I just stood with my head down laughing easily for two or three minutes. He looked amazing. I thought he looked hilarious.”
