ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- A couple known as SickNdehed and Psychovandal were married before fellow gaming enthusiasts at a video expo in the Orlando Science Center in Florida.

Desirai Labrada, 29, aka SickNdehed, and John Henry, 27, aka Psychovandal, met online playing Halo 2, a video game about lobbing plasma grenades at aliens, the Orlando Sentinel reported Sunday.

They were married Saturday, with the bride wearing white, the groom wearing a tuxedo and the officiant dressed in the full body armor of a futuristic, alien-swatting supersoldier.

The couple had a Halo-themed wedding cake and planned to compete in a bride-versus-groom Halo tournament in the Science Center's Cinedome.

"I just wanted my wedding to be a little more interesting than the average wedding," said Labrada. "Basically, I just wanted to play video games at my wedding."
