Young Gets Married
San Francisco Examiner 14Mar00 P2
By SethRosenfeld

KAILUA-KONA, HAWAII -- It actually happened. Mormonism's most eligible bachelor, Steve Young, was married yesterday to former model and public relations professional Barbara Graham, 31, a summa cum laude graduate of Arizona State University. The marriage was solemnized in the Kailua-Kona LDS Temple, which the couple left about 3:15 p.m., and was followed by a reception featuring a luau, complete with roast pig and burning torches.

Because of media interest, security at the wedding was fairly tight. The couple were hidden from view by friends when they exited and got into cars at the Temple and a police officer and a security guard kept four journalists covering the wedding at least 200 feet from the building.

Young's agent and lawyer Leigh Steinberg said, "He's really excited. She's wonderful. Very bright. A very mature yet sweet personality. And beautiful.'' About 90 guests joined Young's and Graham's families at the Orchid resort hotel starting Sunday. The luau was actually Monday night and included Polynesian music and a man juggling flaming spears. Young and his family even entertained the guests by performing the hula dance, according to Steinberg, "He needs to stick to football," he added.

The wedding caps a line of three girlfriends to whom Young had proposed, including BYU graduates Aimee Baglietto and Stephanie Weston. But Young reportedly pulled out of both relationships. "There's always been extra scrutiny on Steve and his romantic life,"Steinberg told the San Francisco Chronicle. "He's arguably the best known Mormon figure in the world. There has been enormous pressure on him."

Young and Graham plan a honeymoon trip around the world, but have kept their precise plans private to avoid publicity.
