Couple to Have Halo-Themed Wedding
When you think “romance,” alien invasions and tons of firepower don’t often come to mind but…hey, waitaminute, what am I saying?! What could be more romantic? Apparently, Desirai Labrada and John Henry agree, as they will be pledging their eternal devotion to one another with “A Match Made in Halo” wedding on Saturday, January 17. The blessed event will take place at the Orlando Science Center as part of Otronicon, a huge video game event.
The bride and groom met while playing Halo online in December of 2004 (I personally like to imagine the proposal taking place right before a shotgun blast is unloaded into the bride-Spartan’s face, but I’m weird like that). Labrada later relocated to Florida to attend Full Sail University in the Degital Media Degree Program, and the two continued their relationship face-to-face.
The Halo paraphernalia will include Master Chief serving as the officiate, Halo emblems for the bridal party, a string quartet playing music from the soundtrack, and a cake/décor inspired by the games. MTV Multiplayer Gaming Blog will be covering the event with updates and video leading up to the big day. The event is being sponsored by a host of Central Florida businesses.
Personally, I’d like to wish the couple the best of luck, and suggest that they focus on team-based multiplayer from here on out. Remember: The family who pwns together stays together.
