Former Eagles QB Secretly Got Married This Week

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez took off to Mexico for a private wedding this week. He married actress Perry Mattfeld.

The couple tied the knot in a 16th-century colonial monastery on Sunday.

Sanchez spent 10 years in the NFL. He played for the New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears, and the Washington Redskins. He now works as a television analyst.

A total of 222 people were in attendance and celebrated the event at a private estate in Oaxaca City.

“We are both of Mexican descent and we loved the idea of celebrating there,” Mattfeld explained. “We visited Oaxaca a few years ago and fell in love, so we knew it was the perfect location for us. We also liked the idea of giving our friends and family a reason to visit Oaxaca!”

They were married by Scotty McKnight, who introduced them to each other in 2017, with Sanchez’s son Daniel a groomsman.
