Katie and Matt combined Star Wars and Star Trek for their wedding earlier this month. When Geeks Wed writes:
The couples’ Klingon wedding ceremony officiated by “Jean Luc Picard” had a Star Wars twist and continued on into their geeky reception. During a Klingon wedding, the groom’s Tawi’Yan presents the couple with bat’leths (or in this case lightsabers) to mock battle each other representing the struggle of the male and female Klingon hearts against one another. After the couple recites their vows (swearing to unite against all their opponents) their guests attack them.
The reception featured Star Wars ships and a Han/Leia cake topper, as well as some Star Trek and Doctor Who guests . More details and pics at the link! (via)
The embarrassment squick strikes back. The second WTF moment of the runup to Celebration V has arrived… The Celebration Chapel. Yes, because going to a Star Wars convention just isn’t geeky enough, you can get a (not legally binding) “light side” or “dark side” wedding. Amusing in theory, but… Really? Seriously? That said, apparently I accidentally proposed to Mandy on Twitter earlier and was invited to photograph her other fake internet wedding, so… What? I’m not even sure anymore. Embrace the pain!
Panels. Shocker! There will be a collecting track! Okay, so it’s not shocking at all, since this has been pretty much the only track at the last couple of Celebrations. Sigh.
If you’re gonna go for it, at least do it with a sense of humor – it looks like everyone had a ton of fun! (And bonus points for a non-traditional wedding couple!) Check out the cake! And a pinata! See the whole set from Justin Winokur. (via)
While I don’t doubt there were still plenty of Star Wars fans still roaming around Saturday and Sunday, with most of the panels being on Friday there wasn’t much new floating around. Well, except for the Mandalorian wedding. (Oye vey.) And Cinematical posted a brief review of Fanboys. And the official site has more pictures, of course, while Rebelscum continues exhaustively documenting the booths and products of every licensee.
