Pulgas Water Temple wedding

My dad’s speech in which he summed up our two families coming together by quoting the Borg from Star Trek: “Resistance is futile!”

Julie and Angelo’s underwater wedding

The most obvious thing that was offbeat about our wedding was that it was underwater. We met in a dive class, and after all of the diving we had done together, it seemed like the thing that expressed something very important to us both.

This musical theater couple’s wedding was as show called “Wedding: The Musical”

We wrote and produced Wedding! The Musical and had our friends star in it with us. Not only was there popcorn and commemorative posters sold pre-show along with a mime, during the “show” there was music, dancing, lip synching, a trapeze swing, skits to tell the story of our relationship, and eventually a ceremony complete with a ringleader, fire, and uh, missing rings. We also spent 3 months learning a choreographed swing dance and pretended to get in a huge fight in front of the 225 guests before sailing into said dance.
