Samantha & Ken: Tech, Love, and Video Games

Planning a wedding with a theme is so much fun! Samantha and Ken were college sweethearts who both majored in computer science and shared a love of video games. The goal was to personalize their wedding with a computer and video game theme, while still creating an elegant event. Of course, the key was in the playful details. The photos by Michael Rastall Photography capture the magic:

The bridal party having fun.

Many churches and venues do not allow flower petals to be thrown. 
As an alternative, we had the flower girl hand full-stemmed flowers, 
to guests, as she made her way up the aisle. 
Guests were surprised and delighted by the twist on tradition!

The themed details started with the escort cards, which were displayed as keys on a keyboard. 
As guests removed their cards, the keyboard underneath was revealed.

The tablescape featured the purple and yellow color scheme with custom cookies in the shape of video game characters at each place setting.

Instead of table numbers, each table was named after a video game or gaming console. 

Some of the custom cookie favors included Kirby and GameBoy.

Cute and yummy!

The traditional money dance involves guests pinning dollar bills to the wedding dress.
But using a sash for pinning can help avoid tears or sticks. 

Whimsical signature drinks added to the theme.

The cardbox - can you guess which video game it's from?

Congratulations to Samantha & Ken!
