An Awesome Video Game Theme Wedding ~

So I was just browsing around and found this FUN and COOL wedding and I MUST share! How awesome!!!! Source: Karen & Ian's Wedding


Smiles


"What made our wedding offbeat: Ian and I met because of our mutual interest in City of Heroes (an online superhero game). We're both huge geeks, and among our common interests are comics, video games, Dungeons & Dragons, and sword fighting. We knew we wanted to incorporate those things into the wedding."


Proposal Picture


Save The Date


Uhhhhhhhh, HOW COOL^^^^ that is awesome!


"I proposed to him using a picture I commissioned of our City of Heroes characters and our save-the-date cards were superhero-themed. We had Tetris-themed invitations and online-only RSVPs as well. I wore a red corset and skirt and carried a feather bouquet, while Ian wore a kilt, a bowler hat, and an axe."


Weapons


"Our wedding party carried swords, axes, and daggers, and our wedding party gifts were hand-painted shields. We signed the legal paperwork ahead of time and our "officiant" for the ceremony was our Dungeon Master (dressed as the Impressive Clergyman from The Princess Bride)."


Tetris


Photobooth


"We also had a photo booth (Ian's laptop with Sparkbooth loaded onto it) and it was a huge hit. With Sparkbooth, we were able to print a copy of the photos immediately for our guests and save a copy to the hard drive."


So I was just photo 3441122-1


"Tell us about the ceremony: When we first started planning the ceremony, I told Ian it needed to be short and funny, and I didn't want to have to say anything if I didn't have to. I know that I cry at weddings (every single one I've attended) and when I'm crying, I get all choked up and can't talk. I'm also quite shy and it would have been pretty awful to have everyone waiting on me to say my lines, and the silence stretching on and on because I couldn't get the words out."

The Kiss


Walking


Applause


King Richard


"My funniest moment: Hands-down, my dad walking into the reception dressed as "King Richard VIII" to emcee. He had managed to keep it a secret and we were both shocked when he came in wearing his crown and robes. It was the perfect touch. My brother-in-law and one of my cousins were dressed as his court jesters. It was probably the hardest I laughed all day, and that's saying something!


Ian found the ceremony (especially the "split mad loots" line) to be the funniest moment. We both had a very hard time keeping a straight face. His youngest brother completely lost it during the ceremony because he didn't think we'd actually go through with the one we had practiced during the rehearsal.


The speeches were also touching and hilarious. We got rickrolled by my Maid of Awesome, and Ian's best man busted out Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." By the end of the night, my face hurt from smiling and my feet hurt from dancing."

"My advice for offbeat brides: Look carefully at all the wedding traditions in your area/culture, and decide which ones work for you and which ones don't. Just because it's "always been done that way" doesn't mean you need to do it that way. You may need to compromise with more traditional family members, but make sure you sit down and discuss things with them so you can each explain your point of view and see if you can come up with something that suits you both.


Check out day-of coordinators. We ended up winning one in a draw, and Wendy was amazing.


Ian: Make sure you get involved and give input to as much as you can. There were lots of things for which I didn't give any useful opinions ("whatever you want to do" is never the correct response), and that just makes things harder. If you help out with stuff, you get to put your own personal touches on thing. You will never get everything you want so learn to compromise."

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!!!

I can't see any of the pictures (probably because I'm at work), but I am excited to look when I get home. I have played City of Heroes (though I found it wasn't my style) and I love when people stay to themselves. The personal element is so unique! And I love that their Dungeon Master (this involves table top RPG Dungeons & Dragons; avid player here, lol) performed the ceremony!
