How to incorporate gaming into your wedding and still keep it tasteful? It's a question many young men and women are dealing with nowadays. So, until we get The Tasteful Gamer's Wedding by Martha Stewart, we're just going to have to keep figuring it out on our own. This is how Cory Stockton, lead level designer at Blizzard, worked gaming into his wedding:
- Super Mario Bros. wedding cake. (So. Cal. designer Erica O'Brien)
- Legend of Zelda ice sculpture/vodka luge (So. Cal. Union Ice). The sculpture doubled as a vodka luge for martinis and shots at the wedding. If you look close at the images in the gallery you can see the channel flowing diagonal down the center of the sword/shield for the alcohol.
- Tables were all named after video game consoles. The head table was called "Press Start to Begin." There were 23 tables from the NES and NeoGeo, to the Xbox 360.
- The grand entrance music was The Legend of Zelda's overworld theme and the wedding party's music was the Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 theme.
