Another Star Wars Wedding

Another Star Wars Wedding

A Star Wars wedding in a galaxy far far too close.

A couple of Portlanders decided to forego convention and flirt with the line between good taste and whatever's on the other side of said line and Star Wars it up for their wedding. Yes, it was a Star Wars wedding for Rebecca D'Madeiros and Bill Duda. The couple decided (and we're paraphrasing), "Hey, the original trilogy was brilliant, let's do this thing." So, the Telegraph reports that the pair dressed as Rebel Alliance stalwarts Mon Mothma and Admiral Ackbar (a fishy character known for his tactical supremacy) and got married by Yoda. Of their officiator Bill Duda says, "It was a lot of fun - after all, it's not everyday you get to be married by Yoda," or get to see a real live naked woman, as it were.

The couple stepped out of continuity a bit as they had an honor guard comprised of Imperial Storm Troopers, the incompetent scourge of Rebel forces. The rest of the usual suspects were in attendance but totally out of character as Sith Lords mingled with Jedi Knights and the bounty hunter Jango Fett fraternized with a gold-bikini wearing Princess Leia (who was only born a generation after his decapitation at the hands of Jedi Mace Windu). By all measures, the canonical errors didn't ruin everyone's good time as Jar Jar Binks was a no show. All in all, the 70 some odd guests report that Rebecca and Bill's romance is way more believable than the non-chemistry between Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman, a love that provided the impetus for Darth Vader to betray the Republic and usher in a new age of Imperial despotism.*

Unfortunately, none of the bridesmaids took the best man up on his offer of a little lightsaber training.**

*Note: No one actually said that. It would just be impossible for a real, live couple to be less compelling than Anikan and Padme, unless lithium was somehow involved.
**Note: This didn't actually get reported either, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.
***Note: We're pretty jealous, we could conceivably be involved in a James Bond wedding 1 day, but what's the point?
