Golden Tate says marrying Elise Pollard
Super Bowl winner Golden Tate says marrying Elise Pollard was the ultimate touchdown. After a 15-month engagement, the couple finally exchanged vows before 250 guests in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on March 11.
“I love the passion Elise brings,” the Detroit Lions player, 28, tells The Knot in an exclusive interview. “People can feel her energy a mile away and it makes those who are shy more comfortable immediately. She’s smart, beautiful, kind, and she makes me a better person. The smartest thing I ever did was marry this amazing woman.”
At first, it was tricky locking down a prime wedding date and location. “With Golden in the NFL, we literally had to plan our wedding date around the season,” Pollard recalls. “That lead us to the February and March time frame. We couldn’t risk planning anything during playoffs or up until the Super Bowl, because we didn’t know how it could affect our guests, groomsmen, and of course, the groom.”
