Wedding follows sci-fi game theme
A couple known as SickNdehed and Psychovandal were married before fellow gaming enthusiasts at a video expo in the Orlando Science Center in Florida.
Desirai Labrada, 29, aka SickNdehed, and John Henry, 27, aka Psychovandal, met online playing Halo 2, a video game about lobbing plasma grenades at aliens, the Orlando Sentinel reported Sunday.They were married Saturday, with the bride wearing white, the groom wearing a tuxedo and the officiant dressed in the full body armor of a futuristic, alien-swatting supersoldier.
The couple had a Halo-themed wedding cake and planned to compete in a bride-versus-groom Halo tournament in the Science Center's Cinedome.
I just wanted my wedding to be a little more interesting than the average wedding, said Labrada.
Basically, I just wanted to play video games at my wedding.
