'Til Game Over Do Us Part: Quirky Video Game Weddings
A couple's wedding is possibly one of the most important events of their lives. This celebration of their union is supposed to represent who they are as a couple, and they would often personalize it in order to express their interests to their guests. This is no exception for gamers. Video game-related weddings have become more popular than ever, especially for couples who have been raised by video games in the '80s and '90s. Here are a few examples of various video game-related weddings. Some of these are adorable, and some of them are just plain weird.
Married By Master Chief: The Halo-Themed Wedding
In 2009, Gamers John Henry and Desirai Labrada made their vows to the world with a Halo-themed wedding. The two lovebirds met while playing Halo and developed their relationship while playing various games online.

Kyle even proposed to his bride-to-be with a Triforce-shaped engagement ring.
Ashley walked down the aisle as "Zelda's Lullaby" plays. The groom and his groomsmen wore cuff links designed to look like game cartridges/discs of the past Zelda games. The couple even had a cake in the shape of the Triforce custom-made for their ceremony. To conclude the wedding, the obligatory Zelda fanfare "ta da da daaah" chimed as soon as their vows were set in stone.
