Known as the gaming couple among their friends Reshele and Brent incorporated touches of their “geeky” personality into their gamer themed wedding. “PC to console to board games we pretty much play it all. When we were planning our wedding, the one thing we knew for sure we wanted was to reflect that aspect of our relationship. It started with our engagement shoot. We wanted to incorporate our love of games in the clothes we wore to the props we used. During the wedding we wanted to keep things more simple.”
For the ceremony, guests sat listening to music from Legend of Zelda while the wedding party walked down to a mix of songs from the Final Fantasy Piano Collections. The gamer theme continued on into the reception with all the tables being named after the couple’s favorite games.
