'Empire' turns 30: Share your memories
Boba Fett Gave me away at our Wedding...
Hi my name is Holly Golightly,I have been a Mega Star Wars fan since June of 1977.
My career as an artist and Comicbook creator was very much influenced by the Star Wars' films.
When planning our wedding with my husband, Jim Balent, (a comicbook artist/ creator as well), we naturally chose a Star Wars theme because it is so close to our hearts.
I've always had a crush on Darth Vader...and am very drawn to the Slave Leia Golden Bikini-so of course I wanted that to be our wedding outfits.
I think it made the wedding even more unique- and no Daddy jokes please...I've heard them all!
Jim and I storyboarded our wedding and we are so happy on how our day and video came out!
Our day was even made more special with the Stormtroppers of Orlando FL 501st as escorts, Boba Fett giving me away and R2D2 as our ring-bearer.
I hope you enjoy watching the video half as much as we did getting married...make sure you stay past the credits for the blooper reel!
This photo is a moment from that special day!
May the Force be With You...Always...
