Southern Indiana groom receives video message from Aaron Rodgers

A groom from Evansville, Indiana received the wedding gift of a lifetime from his favorite NFL player over the weekend.

Take notes folks getting married. This is a way to show your future husband how much you love him. One woman in Evansville wanted to make sure she gave her future husband the gift of a lifetime on their anniversary, and she ever did! I’m pretty sure this is the woman of the year material.

Katie Folsom married her husband Elijah over the weekend of November 19 in Boonville, Indiana. Elijah has been a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan his entire life. When the couple started dating in 2017, Katie made his dreams come true by buying him his first Packers jersey, which was his favorite player Aaron Rodgers. Then she took him to his first ever Packers game in Detroit against the Lions. Katie then took him to Lambeau Field to watch the Packers play the Chicago Bears at home for their 5th anniversary. This is love at its finest.

Fast forward to that year, and Katie wanted to get him the ultimate gift for his wedding present… as if marrying a woman who does all these awesome things wasn’t enough. She wanted to do whatever it took to find a way to get Elijah’s favorite player, Aaron Rodgers, to send him a personalized video. Katie told me:

I contacted the stadium, then they put me in touch with his agent. His agent and I stayed in touch weekly for about three months. The agent finally told me that most likely it would not be possible to get the video, but the very next day he was able to do the video for Elijah and I was able to surprise my husband at our wedding with this special toast from his MVP.

I asked Katie how Elijah reacted when he saw this video at her wedding. She said as soon as he saw who it was he sat very tall in his chair and was super excited. When he then said our names, he straightened up even more excitedly.

I really hope Elijah is as good at surprising Katie with great things as she is! I’m sure he’ll remember it and brag about it for the rest of his life.
