Cosmic Wedding: Storm Troopers & Astronauts
It’s May the Fourth, and you know what that means – Star Wars wedding inspiration galore! This particular wedding, between Kellie and Steven in Vermont, was more space-themed, based on Kellie’s background in space science. But in a fun Star Wars touch, Kellie and Steven were escorted out of the ceremony by a trio of Storm Troopers.
The coolness didn’t stop there: there were a multitude of cosmic details, from the astronaut officiant to the fireworks show at the end of the night. It was truly (forgive me) out of this world! Much thanks to Lovely Valentine for sharing these photos with us, so we can share them with you! Now let’s take off into their exciting journey:
The wedding took place at the Woodstock Inn & Resort in Vermont, a gorgeous and spacious venue. The bride wore a beautiful two-piece gown: the base layer was a sheer dress with a star-like silver pattern, and on top Kellie wore a gorgeous skirt made of layers upon layers of tulle. The wedding was officiated by an actual NASA astronaut and ISS commander, Michael Lopez-Alegria. And of course, once they were pronounced husband and wife, Kellie and Steven were led back down the aisle by three Storm Troopers. But don’t worry, it wasn’t long before Kellie, Steven, and Michael got the drop on those troopers!
The bride and groom had a quick photo shoot with their fantastic photographer and a promotional car, then proceeded to the reception. The venue was transformed with a huge tent, filled with beautiful and colorful futuristic decor. Kellie also transformed, removing her tulle skirt to show off the beautiful sparkly dress underneath.
At last, in a grand finale, the night ended with a full-on fireworks show. As the smoke dissipated, Kellie and Steven’s guests were able to enjoy the lakeside view of the Milky Way and all the stars above. It was a beautiful wedding, perfectly captured by Lovely Valentine. I hope it helps inspire you as you plan a wedding of your own that is just as (so sorry) out of this world!
