Elvis Kenobi presides over Wedding for Brain Tumor victim in a Star Wars Elvis mashup ceremony. 

   PART ONE

On 12-13-14 I get a panicked call from Nick and Destiny. They need to get married Asap at our Cute Little Wedding Chapel. We set them up for a 10pm wedding. 30 of their friends and friends showed up. They told me the sad news that Nick was just diagnosed with a brain tumor and they needed to get married asap.

So surrounded by friends and family I gave them a wonderful heartfelt ceremony filled with laughter and love.

PART TWO

They were scheduled to get married the following January and when they contacted the venue  the venue was unsympathetic and would not change their date or refund their money. This outraged many around them and Channel 7 news did a story on this (watch original news story below). tumor news

PART THREE

Members of the wedding community rallied around them and together we all set the wheels in motion to do their wedding and donate our time. The White House Restaurant in Anaheim donated their facility and catering and many other vendors jumped on board.

PART FOUR

January 2nd 2016 their new wedding day.

When we designed their ceremony they wanted something very special and different. They were doing a 50s style wedding and wanted me to do Elvis but they were also huge Star Wars Fans. So I designed a mashup ceremony using my Elvis and Star Wars scripts together. I wore my Jedi outfit and Elvis wig and glasses and created………Elvis Kenobi the intergalactic king of rock and roll.

The Wedding party walked in to the Imperial march from the movie then Elvis Kenobi sand the bride down with the Hawaiian Wedding Shon. With references to the star wars movies and Elvis songs the ceremony was filled with laughs, songs and Love. We included the potion ceremony where their Midichlorians were blended together into a tree trunk from the planet Endor. If smoked arised then their love was true. Then did a Sand Ceremony with sand from the planet Tatooine.

It ended with an amazing Kiss and the recessional was to the Star Wars Main theme song.

Channel 7 news showed up and did a follow-up story as shown below. Video

It all ended with a wonderful happy family moments. Nick is tumor free. Yaaaaaa!!!

They gave me an awesome testimonial Video_1

May the force be with you. Elvis has left the galaxy.
