Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff married his fiance, Sports Illustrated model Christen Harper, over the weekend in a small, intimate ceremony.

According to TMZ, "Goff rocked a snazzy black tuxedo and bowtie for the occasion ... and Harper had on a strapless white gown and veil. They looked as happy as could be as they exchanged vows ... staring deeply into each other's eyes as the small crowd watched on. Harper was pretty emotional during the "I Dos" ... wiping back tears as she officially became Mrs. Goff. The two got engaged back in June 2022 ... after first going public together in 2019."

The couple grew up in California, and both Goff and Harper were excited to share their special day with close friends and family.

“This summer we're getting married in California, and we're very excited,” Goff recently told People Magazine about the wedding. “California is where I grew up and live currently, and my fiancée is from just outside of Los Angeles, so she was born and raised there as well. So, we have some pretty good roots there.”

Lions quarterbacks coach Mark Brunell was asked about the type of present someone gives to a quarterback who seemingly has it all.

“An NFL quarterback, for a wedding gift? Well, that’s tough," Brunell expressed. "I’d have to think about that. I don’t have much time. I better hurry up. I’ve got a couple weeks. I kind of leave that for my wife. She takes care of that stuff, and it’ll be good.”
