Guinness World Records, the global authority on record breaking, shared a story about hardcore players who tied the knot in a video-game themed way.  This and other video gamed-themed proposals and wedding ceremonies are featured in the latest Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer’s Edition.

Here’s the information on the Halo wedding, provided by Guinness:

· Halo is perhaps best known for defining the online gaming experience, so it’s no wonder that Desirai Labrada and John Henry met on Xbox Live while playing Halo 2 in 2004. Five years later, the couple marched down the aisle to the Halo 3 menu music. Their ceremony was officiated by a man dressed as Master Chief himself while guests received purple candles shaped like plasma grenades. The couple even skipped the first dance in favor of a bride vs. groom Halo tournament.

You can see more couples like these in the feature in the new Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer’s Edition book; it retails for $14.99. More information:
