Friday Night Rites: Why Lambeau Field Has Become a Popular Wedding Venue for Couples
Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers, is so beloved in Wisconsin that it's become a popular place to get married.
So it's fitting that brides and grooms flock to the stadium that's been dubbed "football's cathedral."
One couple, Patrick and Kayla just got hitched at the stadium before attending the game there the next day.
It's actually easier to get married there than it is to buy season tickets, which has a waiting list of more than 130,000. If one was to get on the list now, they might have to wait about 40 years.
The stadium holds 81,435 people and Packers games have been sold out since 1960.
The stadium was built in 1957 and was originally called City Stadium, in 1965, it was renamed Lambeau Field in honor of Packers founder, player and head coach Curly Lambeau, who passed away 2 months before the renaming.
