One recently married couple loved World of Warcraft so much they decided to make Blizzard Entertainment's MMORPG the theme for their matrimony. The Offbeat Bride (via The Huffington Post) this week posted images of Jen and Nick's Warcraft-themed wedding and it's the ultimate fantasy come to life.

The Warcraft-themed wedding (which took place in New Hampshire) included Alliance and Horde flags on the altar and the couple also crafted their own weapons based on items from the game. Tables at the reception were even named after World of Warcraft raid bosses.

Jen and Nick did not meet in World of Warcraft, but that's where their relationship blossomed, Jen wrote on the website.

"He lived in New Hampshire at the time, and I was in Massachusetts, but we could talk through the game and grow together," she said. "So the game became part of the wedding theme, since it was so integral to our relationship. We aimed for a balance between nerd and tradition."

The wedding wasn't all about Warcraft, however. Jen's processional music was the Game of Thrones theme, while the after-party featured "Terra's Theme" from Final Fantasy. On top of that, when Jen and Nick presented each other with rings at the altar, the "Get Item" sound from The Legend of Zelda played.

Last month, BioWare recalled how two Mass Effect 3 players met, fell in love, and were eventually married. You can read that story here.
