A “Mandalorian” Wedding

29 July 2008

How do you know two people are meant to be together and just so happen to be die hard fans of the Star Wars movies? They decide to marry…Mandalorian style.

Thomas Kuhlman, 39, and Tenille Kuhlman, 30, married outside of Comic Con (the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world) in full Mandalorian costume. And if you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, Mandalorian is a fictional race in the Star Wars Universe. The couple were surrounded by fellow members of the Star Wars fan club, who also wore full costumes including helmets, boots and jet packs.

Leading up to the altar decorated with white faux roses, guests created a long light sabre arch for the bride and groom to walk under. The ceremony was carried out by Tom Hutchens, an IT professional and Mandalorian preacher.

Vows were recited in both Manalorian and English followed by the unique ending, “I now pronounce you Mandalorian husband and wife.”
