'Marvel-ous' Wedding: Couple Dresses as Super Heroes in Epic Themed Ceremony
The bride, a kindergarten teacher from Portland, Oregon, and groom, from San Diego, California, were dressed as Agent Carter and Captain America.
I’m with you until the end of the line. Shawn Richter and Lisa Lower are celebrating their wedding nuptials with an epic, Marvel-themed affair.
The bride, a kindergarten teacher from Portland, Oregon, and groom, a field service engineer from San Diego, California, were dressed as Agent Carter and Captain America. They joined their unity shield and raised it in victory during the ceremony.
There were movie posters set up all around the lobby of The Chateau Escondido in Escondido, California, where the ceremony was held back in June. There were comic books, Captain America and Peggy Carter Funko Pops and related artwork. There was even a life-sized cardboard cutout of Stan Lee. The guest book was made of a metal Captain America shield that all of the invitees signed.
The wedding, filmed by Classic Filmworks, started with a 17-minute audio track mixed with a message from Stan Lee and iconic music scores from Marvel. The happy couple were joined by friends cosplaying as Marvel favorites like Spider Man, Hawkeye and some of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Guests were encouraged to dress up as well -- and some went all out with face paint. Lower's 75-year-old dad wore an eye patch, dressed as Odin (cosplaying for the first time) as he walked her down the aisle. Lower's wedding dress was red and white to match the Marvel logo.
The receiving line after the ceremony was a Hollywood-style red carpet with step-and-repeat backdrops. Guests received a plastic event badge, just like one would get at a movie premiere. They waited in line to take photos and get autographs from the stars of "Fondue for Two."
Richter and Lower met at a San Jose comic convention in 2017. In 2019, they got engaged on the purple carpet of Marvel’s “Avengers: End Game” movie premiere in Los Angeles. Richter, dressed as Steve Rogers, proposed to Lower, who was dressed as Peggy Carter.
“I thought maybe there might be a small window before the celebrities arrived and basically that’s what happened,” Richter told Inside Edition Digital then of his plan to propose.
The unique proposal caught the attention of Disney. "Disney contacted us and said that they were 'working on a project' and asked our permission to use the video for the project," Richter told Inside Edition Digital. "We later found out it was a commercial to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Disney and were told a couple of weeks beforehand that the commercial would debut during the Super Bowl. Pretty amazing,” Richter said.
So was their wedding.
