During the wedding processional, these surprise Stormtroopers came down the aisle throwing flower petals. Although I've seen other Star Wars weddings where Stormtroopers participated, I've never seen a wedding where they served as flower girls.
The idea of integrating them as flower girls came from the wedding planner, Nam Lam — and what a great idea it was as you can see here. The humor, whimsy, and quirkiness of this small detail added a great deal to the entertainment value of these Star Wars characters. As you can see from the reactions on the faces of guests nearby, they were a big hit with everyone. The humor was intensified because of the juxtaposition of serious soldiers taking on the role normally held by little girls. In retrospect, I wish I had the foresight to have asked that the florist provide flower garlands for these guys.
