Its Pete "BenBinh" and Jen here and you may have heard we got enCAGEd in a rather uncoventional way at the C4GED 4-EVER marathon. That's right our own holy Ghost Rider of awesome acting, our National Treasure Mr. Nicolas Cage himself presided over and gave us his blessing. We were quite Moonstruck by the whole event. You could even say Mr. Cage is The Rock we are building the foundation of our relationship on.
However that moment was Gone in 60 Seconds and our wedding is around the corner, that's right time for the Kiss of Death itself (jk it's more like a Vampire's Kiss). Then after that of course it is our Honeymoon in Vegas....okay we're not really going to Vegas, maybe we're going Bangkok Dangerously instead? Actually we found some good deals and already booked tickets to Amsterdam, because what can I say, we're just Wild at Heart.
Lets break it down:
Round Trip Tickets to Amsterdam for two: $1K
AirBnB stay and accomodations for 9 days: $1K
Food, Fun, and Travel for 9 days: $1K
Venue Rental: $825
35mm Film Rental: $300
Now Knowing the details, Jen and I are saving our monies, her mom is going to give us some help, but we've already put several things on credit card. The wedding will be around $6K is ultimately in our hands, a lot of people at Alamo Drafthouse and AGFA are helping us out and giving us the best deals on prices. Our wedding will be quite odd. It's an October wedding so we will be Bringing Out The Dead for this one, it's a halloween costume party, Nic Cage themed and there will be a super secret 8mm oops I mean 35mm screening of a classic Nicolas Cage film for our guests, oh and of course us having our Face/Off with the nuptials. We don't need gifts, since Jen and I have alot of stuff already, we just want the Best of Times, an escape away where we don't have to worry about getting around or affording food. :)
It is 3K for that and the extra two or more if we get it, will go towards helping us with the wedding itself. Thanks folks, we love you
P.S. If anyone has the hook up with Nicolas Cage, please let him know there's an open invite for him, because we wouldn't want him to feel Left Behind.
Actually this may be a gamble but maybe we will roll Snake Eyes. Consider this an official open letter to Mr. Nicolas Cage if he would like to attend a wedding of true fans who adore your body of work with earnest joy.
We thank you for making our engagement extra special and hope we didn't cause you to Drive Angry with the puns. We don't expect you to be Leaving Las Vegas to see us and honestly we respect how busy you are as a performer and artist. Thank you and we hope you enjoy the absurdity. To show how much you meant to our engagement check out the tattoo Jen got in honor of the moment.
And we we thank you everyone for the support, you guys Kick-Ass.
