“Fewer than 1% of our weddings are theme weddings. Most are not fully implemented themes, but rather just a few accents to the decor or activities,” said Mark in an interview with Bored Panda. “For instance, a couple might have light sabers and a bit of decor that matches the Star Wars theme, but they don’t dress up as a character from the movie. It’s rare to see a full-blown theme wedding where the wedding party and the bride and groom have dressed up to play the part and all the decor is theme related.”

Not only was R2D2 the couple’s ring bearer, the little robot even helped film the wedding with the GoPro attached to his head. Mark added that even things such as decor, music, and invitations were Star Wars themed.

“I think it’s good to still maintain some traditional elements to the wedding (after all, the day is not just all about Star Wars, or whatever the theme is, it’s about getting married primarily),” said the photographer. “Carrie and Cory’s wedding, while having a theme, also incorporated elements of their own personal style (such as Carrie’s choice of dress and hairstyle and flowers, and Cory’s choice of shoes, etc).”

“The bride and groom were over the moon (or maybe I should say they were over the Death Star) with how things turned out!” said Mark. “I don’t think they thought their photos would go viral by any means, but we all knew they had pulled off a very unique themed wedding that was fun for them and very entertaining for their guests!”

Not long after, Mark was asked to shoot another Star Wars-themed wedding

“Chris and Jolie wanted to go all the way for their Star Wars theme, so they flew all the guests to the swamp covered planet of Dagobah, where Luke had once trained to be a Jedi with Yoda,” explained the photographer. “It worked well because the bride and groom wanted a more secluded setting so that the Empire could not bother them on their wedding day. All joking aside, they simply wanted to add some Star Wars accents to their day and capture some fun memories incorporating the theme. Their light sabers were made by the Jedi Masters at the company Ultrasabers.”

This is not the first time couples had Star Wars-themed wedding – check out some more pics below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
