This past weekend, the Suburban Collection Expo Center in Novi hosted the annual Motor City Comic Con, and also a Star Wars themed wedding. David Waite and Olivia Vance of White Lake asked guests to dress as Star Wars characters as they exchanged vows at the convention.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the couple met on Facebook 2 years ago, and shared a love of Star Wars, so they decided that a themed wedding was for them. Olivia, the bride, dressed like Padme Amidala, with face makeup and a cloak, while groom David dressed as Anakin Skywalker-complete with a light saber. A boyhood friend of David’s conducted the officiating duties.
“It all just tied together, our nerdness and our love of Star Wars,” Waite told the Detroit Free Press.
The couple was gifted with a special R2D2 cake donated by Shula’s Bakery in Brimley, Michigan:
