Grace Amundsen and Scott Barnkow

June 2, 2017

From the beginning of their love story to their happily ever after, Grace and Scott have been true to themselves and their love of pop culture. Their wedding embraced many of their favorite things – from the bridal party (which included a “bridesman” and two “groomsmaids”) dressed in cloaks to become “the fellowship of the wedding,” to Grace and Scott leaving the ceremony to Darth Vader's theme, “Imperial March,” to the centerpieces that included a 3D-printed Poké Ball and balloons from Pixar's "Up." A few wedding crashers made the outdoor ceremony even more entertaining: During the procession, a beluga pod and sea lion appeared just offshore, causing the entire wedding party to stop and watch. What Scott remembers most about the day was the wedding music: He still tears up when hearing the Piano Guys’ version of the Jurassic Park theme.
