Germana & Andrew
In a galaxy not so far away, Germana and Andrew fell in love… to say this fun couple are Star Wars fans may be a bit of an understatement! Their September 2017 wedding, in Norwood, MA, centered around an intergalactic theme where Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Stormtrooper and more were among the guest list. This featured bride story is truly unique, and we are thrilled to share Germana and Andrew’s story, along with lots of amazing photos!

Germana recalls, “Andrew’s original plan was to propose at the DeCordova Art Museum in Lincoln, MA. But, the weather was terrible that weekend, and we were booked solid for the next few weeks. The ring was burning a hole in his pocket, so he popped the question at home while I was putting things away! I wouldn’t change a thing.”
“I remember thinking to myself, as he was showing the ring and proposing, ‘Omg, is that an R2-D2 ring?!’ I was so focused on that, I forgot to say yes at first. He did a great job, I’m a HUGE R2-D2 fan, and the thought of getting an R2-D2 ring never crossed my mind!”
The venue and theme
“At first we weren’t going to have a Star Wars themed wedding. We only wanted a few Star Wars elements. I was never one of those people who was into wedding planning, outside of the dress shopping. However, we wanted our wedding to be fun, and for the planning to be fun as well. So… we decided to just go for it, and chose a full-on Star Wars theme! Best decision ever!”
The wedding dress
“My experience at VOWS was amazing! My consultant was Sapna. She helped me zero in on exactly what I wanted. We got there a bit earlier than my appointment. I wanted to poke around the selection. My bridesmaids and I tagged a bunch of dresses and I tried on all of them. I wasn’t really set on anyone in particular, but Sapna found my gown toward the end of my appointment. I am so grateful she did, and so is my wallet!”
“My dress is an awesome WTOO by Watters design. It really went well with the theme of my wedding. I nicknamed it ‘hyperspace’ as the pattern on the dress looks like when the ship hits hyperspace in Star Wars. I honestly didn’t think I would find a dress I liked more than a Lazaro gown that was way out of my budget from another bridal shop. But, it happened! Since the dress was such a bargain, I had plenty of money left over for a custom star veil, custom star belt, and let’s not forget to mention my awesome R2-D2 heels!” Photo: © Berryphotos
