It’s a love story straight out of Sports Illustrated. Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller and Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum said “I Do” at a ceremony on Saturday.
Kelsey looked absolutely stunning in her gown, Darren beyond handsome in his black slacks, white coat and sockless shoe game. They look absolutely swept away by the moment!
Turns out the pair have been dating since last year… which technically makes them an at-work romance. Both the Las Vegas Raiders and Las Vegas Aces are both owned by Mark Davis.
Things have been coming up “Aces” for Kelsey Plum, who had an incredible season with the Las Vegas’ WNBA franchise, bringing the valley our first professional title. Not to mention being named the 2022 WNBA All Star MVP. While the Raiders didn’t have the ending they were hoping for, Waller has had an incredible storybook career. He was on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad when he was given a shot by the Raiders, and he ran with it.
The cutest thing about this couple? They registered on TheKnot.com like the rest of us. See, celebrities are normal people too!
Darren Waller and Kelsey Plum weren’t the only ones getting wed…
Here’s an awkward twist though – Darren Waller wasn’t the only Raider getting married on Saturday. Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby also got married to his longtime girlfriend on Saturday. Which wedding did teammates go to? Where did Mark Davis end up? Or is it the perfect excuse to miss both? Only time will tell.
So, Las Vegas, it is time to bow to our royal sports couple. Harry and Meghan, step aside. Until you can run for nearly 1,200 yards or take home a title, you are mere peasants. Gaze at your MVP (most valuable pair).
