Jessica Fowler and Mark Murray were married on November 7th of this year in a colorful, fun and upbeat break from the Covid doldrums. It was a fall in theme – along with some serious elements from a “galaxy far, far away.”

The Attendants & Prep Time

A Groom & his Storm Troopers

Mark is a huge Star Wars fan, so in true wedding compromise, Jessica had a Storm Trooper introduce them into the reception, the guys had Darth Vader masks, and the fall decor was on point. All the guests loved it!  Jessica and Mark have a blended family and they wanted the kids to feel a part of the wedding ceremony so they created a wedding puzzle, with everyone having a piece of the puzzle. 

The Ceremony

For as much laughter as there was at the reception (keep reading below), there were such tender moments and tears during the ceremony. These two and their friends just love each other so much and it was obvious.

The Details

Totally autumnal, completely Star Wars and oh-so Jessica and Mark. We love the way everything came together and how their choices spoke to their humor, love and style. The maid of honor carried a hoop down the aisle instead of a traditional bouquet!  

The Reception

These folks love to party and they said “I Do” to cake, dancing, cocktails and losing their shoes in order to keep going as the evening wore on and the sun went down. Everything became even more casual and the atmosphere was electrifying. For their send-off, what else? Light sabers!
