See Vader kiss a stormtrooper at this Star Wars beach wedding #Real Weddings: Southern US#beach#couples of color#destination wedding#eloping#florida#lawn games#star wars October 5 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Filda Konec Photography Photos by Filda Konec Photography Years ago, Joey met Kiara in Hong Kong; they're currently living in New York; and they decided to say their vows in the Florida Keys last June. Whew! These world travelers wanted to keep things pretty simple… you know, a classic dress, a great suit, just a casual destination wedding in sunny weather. Maybe a light-hearted game of beanbags. But you can't keep offbeat down, and Joey and Kiara sneaked some geek into their classy elopement with a Star Wars beach wedding! I love Joey's explanation about making out in their Darth Vader and stormtrooper masks: We are both fans of Star Wars! It was originally her idea… it fits well because the new Star Wars movie is coming out this winter! -Joey Spoken like a true geek, sir.
