A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Kasie and Chris fell in love. Their friendship evolved into romance as their love of Star Wars (and other geeky hobbies) brought them closer together.
“We wanted a very elegant wedding, but we also wanted elements that highlighted some of our favorite nerdy things,” says Kasie. One way they decided to incorporate this idea was to depart through a tunnel of light sabers. Not only did it play to their nerdiness, but incorporated the Navy tradition of walking under a tunnel of swords.
