Video Game-Inspired Wedding Unites Gamers in ‘Halo' Matrimony

Years ago, when design student Desirai Labrada came across John Henry in a deathmatch while playing Halo online, she probably didn’t suspect she’d end up marrying him in a Halo-themed wedding ceremony.

It’s probably the dream of most little girls to walk down the aisle to Halo’s signature theme song being performed by a string quartet. This January, Desirai actually got to live the dream when she married her Halo Honey in a public ceremony in Orlando during Otronicon, an annual event celebrating gaming and gamers.

Desirai’s dress bore her avatar embroidered onto the white silk, and officiating over the ceremony was Halo’s Master Chief, helmet and all. The reception was soon turned over to bloodthirsty Halo deathmatches, sticky grenade party favors and, of course, media interviews.

No word on where the honeymoon was, but I figure it wasn’t too far away from an Xbox.
