Set phasers to "lame".

aw man, don't call Ackbar "minor"!

so let me get this straight (heh)-- this is okay with the fundies but not the marriage of two committed same sex people that occurs in a church or park or whatever without the star wars stuff? I don't get it.

just stop it. people - star wars is NOT COOL.

I went to the Flickr page. It was funny for a minute, but right around the Admiral Ackbar/Darth Vader light saber fight, it gets really, really sad.

Even if you aren't into Star Wars, the image of that guy striding down the aisle wearing a fish-face mask on his wedding day is without a doubt the most wonderful thing I will see all day.

Somebody invited me to a WoW wedding this Saturday at 8PM PST.

Now that was strange. Apparently they get a 300 level tailor to craft the Bridal Dress ...

Coincidentally, my trivia team was thinking about calling itself "Hot Admiral Ackbar Action" a few weeks ago. Now it doesn't seem so funny.

@2: It was probably a trap comment, but my first instinct still was to correct you that phasers belong in the Star Trek, not Star Wars, universe.

I'll go hang myself now.

@12 - well duh.

Although they do have phase pistols in Star Wars.

I wonder if he took the fishhead off for his honeymoon night....

Posted by NapoleonXIV | July 29, 2008 3:33 PM

As the Yoda pictured in the photos I find some of the comments bizarre. Get a sense of humor you must!
P.S. For the record I don't even like Star Wars.

Posted by Gena | July 29, 2008 3:34 PM

Um, I know I'm only revealing what a huge fucking nerd I am with the comment, but Admiral Ackbar and Mon Mothma are only minor characters in the movies. In the Star Wars Expanded Universe, they're both very, very important.

I'll go hide now.

Posted by Gitai | July 29, 2008 3:38 PM


So do they actually get it on in the expanded Star Wars universe?

Posted by keshmeshi | July 29, 2008 3:50 PM

Google 'Star Wars Ice Cream Guy' and 'A5-D4'

you got nothin on those two.

@18: No. They're only in bed in the political sense.

Posted by Greg | July 29, 2008 4:27 PM

As the one and only Slave Leia bridesmaid-(I did the rings)...I would like to say it was a great time...the cast/characters were all amazing-even if you are not a Star Wars freak! Props to Justin Winokur for capturing everybody's attire/expressions so well- fabulous job :)

Writing the speech w/the bride and groom was my fave part!

Posted by CallyBee | July 29, 2008 4:37 PM

The bride, here. Some of you are missing the point. This wedding was completely tongue-in-cheek. We are not huge Star Wars nerds (even though we look it), but thought it would only be worth having a wedding if it was a silly Star Wars costume party. Everyone said it was the greatest wedding they've ever been to. Who wouldn't want to be married by Yoda in backwards Yoda-speak? We all had a wonderful time. I HEART Ackbar!

Posted by Mon Mothma | July 29, 2008 6:00 PM

I think that's awesome. They could have gone with something cliche, Han and Leia, or Anakin and Padme, but they chose more interesting characters like Mon Mothma and Admiral Akbar, who totally rocked the rebellion.

Plus everyone looks really into it, and the costumes are good. Really good.

Posted by rb | July 29, 2008 7:24 PM

Uh.... A marriage usually only gets one wedding, so it seems really unbelievable that no one in the party admits to being huge Star Wars fans, yet they went all out into Star Wars esotera for the wedding (characters only a Star Wars geek could identify), played along, and loved it.

I suppose to some, "not a huge star wars geek" means "only wears a stormtrooper costume once a month".

Posted by K | July 30, 2008 9:16 AM

I heard Jar Jar got super wasted at the reception afterwards.

Posted by Ani | July 30, 2008 3:25 PM

What was the cake made of? And how did the person make it?

Posted by Simon | July 30, 2008 5:17 PM

@24 If you can believe it, we convinced people who had never seen Star Wars to dress up in costume. Costumes were required (we're hard-asses when it comes to theme parties). There were some amazing, creative costumes, even better than ours. The guys in the professional costumes are the 501st Legion; you can look them up. Star Wars is totally nostalgic for us. We're fans, but we don't follow the current stuff and we hate the new movies.
@26 The cake was dark chocolate with hazelnut chocolate ganache and vanilla cream frosting. There were some wafer cookies, Ding Dongs, and Pokky in there too. It was delicious! Best wedding cake ever, in my opinion!
