Emily and Phil met in 2002 through mutual friends in the UK Garrison, a Star Wars 501st legion group, and have been together ever since. The pair chose to have a wedding that combined all of their favorite things: leopard print, music, and, of course, Star Wars. The bridal party wore leopard-printed dresses to match Emily's self-designed shoes, and the bride's floor-length red bridal gown was matched by the groomsmen's red shirts.

These two costumers certainly seem to have a flair for making an entrance — Emily was brought to the venue on a steam train! Guests were treated to a host of activities (tattoo station, anyone?) and joined in the photo booth by none other than Lord Vader himself…

Emily designed her leopoard-print Converse on the brand's website.

The rings were engraved in Aurebesh.
