From the moment we met for their very first wedding consult, we could not wait for Jayda and Cole's totally unique wedding! Their Japanese proposal story was just as impressive, so we knew these two would take it over the top with their video game wedding theme.
Everything was very authentic to the two of them - both of whom love science fiction and video games. We really enjoy when couples can incorporate their personality into their wedding, especially when the two people share the same interests as deeply as these two. Their cat's name is Stan Lee for crying out loud!
The bride had Princess Leia inspired braids, a handmade necklace charm, and a wooden bouquet. While getting ready she even wore a Star Trek house coat. The groom so sharply dressed adorned himself with a replica Portal gun during portraits that we really enjoyed role playing with for a few photos.
A Lego wedding cake, inflatable Dungeons and Dragons dice kissing game, Portal Companion Cube wedding card box, one thousand paper cranes, and identical wedding party characters made out of fusible beads including the cat made this one of the best themed weddings! Cannot wait for the day that Player 1 and 2 become 3.
Some words from Jayda and Cole:
Our wedding day was amazing; everything geeky collided with fun. We had a lot of DIY accents lovingly made by ourselves and family. We blended our love of video games and Japan without making it look any less 'wedding'. The meal was brunch! Pancakes, waffles, fruit, pastries, spiked coffee and juices. Instead of clinking glasses, we had an inflatable 20 sided die to roll, with its own rules. We had a lot of fun surrounded by friends and family.
Andrea and Mitch were AMAZING! Right from the first meeting, they were helpful, insightful, and excited for us! They added great ideas to what we already had. We met and corresponded often, which was a huge help. They were always there for quick questions and long drawn out conversations. The day of they were great, close enough to get intimate moments, but enough that they weren't intrusive. They had great ideas for locations and great poses for portraits and fun candid shots.
