Little peanut Colin very much wants to become a Jedi when he grew up—but bless his sweet lil heart, he also wants to get married!
Because Jedis, charged with the very serious business of keeping the peace, are not allowed to marry, concerned and enterprising little Colin whipped off a letter to George Lucas, requesting special permission to also be allowed to get married when he hopefully becomes a Jedi one day.
Dear George Lucas,
I don’t like that a Jedi cannot get married. I want to get married without becoming a Sith. Please change the rule. P.S. I want to come to Skywalker Ranch please.
Welp, he got it. And he is pumped.
Way to fight for what you want, Colin! You’re going to make an excellent Jedi husband one day.
We’ve seen some brides do some pretty crazy-cool—and surprise—things at their weddings: Rap. Dance. You know, stuff like that.
But I can’t say we’ve ever seen a bride—in full regalia, no less—plop down behind a drum set and completely slay some metal. But here is this totally bad-ass, beautiful bride doing just that. Please enjoy Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” courtesy of her awesomeness:
Did you bust out with a surprise performance of any kind for your guests at your wedding? If so, do tell!

At Let Them Eat Cake, you’ll be wowed by designs like this confection from last year’s event.
A week from today, my engaged friends, is an event where you can look at and eat, like, a million seriously impressive cakes made by local Philly-area bakers, sip champagne, listen to a live band, and have a generally lovely evening with your fiance or bridesmaids—all while knowing that the proceeds of the evening are going to City of Hope’s women’s cancer research. It’s time for Let Them Eat Cake!This is the deal:
The couple: Cat McQuail and Joe Hauschildt from Philadelphia.
The ring: My ring is a pear-shaped solitaire diamond set in white-gold prongs on a yellow-gold band. My fiancé picked it out on his own, but called one of my good friends right before he bought it to confirm he was making the right choice.
While we had talked about rings in the past, we had never been shopping together and my Pinterest “Put a Ring On It” pinboard was private, so there’s no way he could have seen my ring pins—but luckily for me, his selection mirrored the rings I pinned on my secret board! As a recent law school grad, he likes to do his due diligence, so he did a lot of research and then purchased the ring online.
So Jon Ardito over at Philly’s JAE Entertainment sent us this Bridal Bootcamp playlist, which he put together using songs from the company’s bands’ and DJs’ playlists that get people dancing at wedding receptions—and that also make for great pump-you-up workout songs.
We thought it was pretty great as far as champagne-soaked dancing goes (you know, our area of expertise), but just to be sure it met with approval for working up a sweat, we checked in with our buds over at Be Well Philly, since they are kind of the experts around here in workout playlists.
I wish I had been at this wedding to have a drink with this girl. For although she did not have a designated person (i.e., a date) with whom to hop in the photo booth and do all the requisite photo booth poses, she hopped in that damn photo booth anyway and posed away:
We love this girl. Image via Imgur.
She sent a shot of the excellent result to her brother, who then posted it on Reddit, that we now all might enjoy learning the proper way to go about being at a wedding without a date. Though I’m not sure anyone will be able to do that better than her.
Something tells us she’ll have a date at the next wedding she attends.
