Couple Has Awesome Star Wars-Themed Wedding, And Their Photos Go Viral


Carrie and Cory Shields met while interning with Disney’s college program. The two started dating and realized just how much both of them loved Star Wars. He told her that in the extended universe, Boba Fett was actually able to escape the Sarlacc pit and continue to be the best anti-hero in Star Wars and she looked at him and said ‘I love you.’ To this he responded ‘I know,’ paying homage to Leia and Han Solo. Fast forward a couple of episodes and the couple got married.

“Fewer than 1% of our weddings are theme weddings,” Carrie and Cory’s wedding photographer, Mark Hillis, shared with Bored Panda. “Most are not fully implemented themes, but rather just a few accents to the decor or activities. 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.”

Hillis thinks that Carrie and Cory executed their themed wedding very well, without going over the top by dressing up as stormtroopers, or having the wedding party all dressed as characters. “They had some very unique elements to their day based on the Star Wars movies, such as a full life-sized R2D2 robot that was remote controlled and used as their ring bearer during the ceremony,” he said. In fact, they even attached a GoPro to the robot to capture the ceremony from its perspective.

“They also had the theme integrated into much of their wedding day decor, music, and their invitations. 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). 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! 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!”

Later, the same photohrapher was asked to capture 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,” Hillis explained. “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.”

Over the years, Star Wars has become one of the more popular wedding themes
