Jon Stokes (R2-D2 handler) very generously accompanied us to this event, so just before the bride and groom entered the reception area, R2 'stepped out of hiding' to say hi and roll ahead of them. He was a surprise as we'd previously expressed that we didn't have any droids available for this event. The happy couple's reaction was one of glee. The bride even squealed something to the effect of "omigah you GOT an R2!" and did a little happy dance.

It went beautifully, and Jon's professionalism and experience with large, cue-heavy events was crucial to that.

Thanks also to Timothy. Everyone loves a Wookiee!

Awesome job guys, and I can't believe Jon was able to come as well! I've trooped with him several times and know both he and his R2 are super top notch troopers Wink Thanks again to everyone, hope we get some pictures from the event too Very Happy

Jon went far above and beyond. It was a late night for us all, and he never said die.

I kept up on this and the couple actually presented the donation a year later at the annual event they were supporting. It was $200 to the "Matthew Nierenberg Memorial". They sent me some pictures of the check and the presentation but it's in a zip file and I can open it but can't figure out how to save it to then post it lmao, I stink so bad with computer stuff Embarassed

They also sent me a follow up link they did Star Wars style to announce their upcoming baby:

They apologized for the delay Wink
