It’s been a year since my marriage and I’m finally posting up pictures.
I wanted a classy wedding with nerdy undertones since we met playing World of Warcraft. It was still conventional: I wore a white dress, I had the appropriate wedding party, and the reception consisted of eating and dancing.
Here were the more interesting parts:
Our recessional music was to the Theme of Star Wars, adapted for cello and violin by me.
Our drink was called “Elixir of Cherry Blossoms” (my wedding flower)
Our wedding program contained a "buff" in the corner
Guests were seated to their tables named after locations in the mmorpg World of Warcraft. Seating arrangement was attached to a wreath of cranes. We made 1,000 cranes for the wedding.
This is was 1000 cranes looks like. We made them over the course of 5 months.
Each table had a description of the location and the story behind it.
Descriptions for some of the tables. We had 11 tables.
We had R2-D2 run around the dance floor.
The wedding party walked in to the opening music in the WoW login screen, and I walked in with my husband to “Live to Win”
We danced to “Earth Angel” from Back to the Future and the dance scene from Pulp Fiction. The video also sliced in Robot Chicken.
My sister-in-law made World of Warcraft papercrafts that were spread out at the headtable.
Frostmourne, Moonkin, Hearthstone, Goblin statue
The grooms cake was designed as a murloc wearing a top hat. You should have seen the look on the baker's face when we tried to explain to him what we wanted.
The cake came out really nice. We were very happy at the detailed results.
We made our own cake toppers in the shape of our avatars wearing appropriate apparel.
