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.
