Real Weddings | Alicia's San Diego Chargers vs Seattle Seahawks House Divided Wedding Garter

It's been awhile, and we are way overdue for another installment in my Real Weddings series!

Today features Alicia's San Diego Chargers/Seattle Seahawks house divided wedding garter. A Seattle native, Alicia wed husband Adam last December at the Karl Strauss Brewery & Garden in Sorrento Valley, San Diego. Photos by Stephina Photography.

Alicia's own words on selecting her garter: 

I was so excited to find Sugarplum Garters because Adam and I met tailgating at a San Diego Charger game in 2010 and we are both big sports nuts! I however was born in Seattle and my heart has remained with the city and its teams even though I have lived most of my life in California. Initially I was just going to order a Chargers garter but then I saw Heather will do a "house divided" garter and I was SOLD!!! 1/2 Chargers 1/2 Seahawks, and this is how it goes in our house!

Any two teams you choose can be included on a house divided garter or set. My house divided garter is available for purchase on my website here; it can be purchased by itself or in a set including a keepsake garter and a toss garter.

If you purchased a garter from Sugarplum Garters and would like to be featured in an upcoming Real Weddings post, please contact me at sugarplumgarters{at}
