Some couples invite their favorite celebrities to their weddings, but Tampa's Jennifer Huber and David Sanborn took it a step further. On January 4, 2017, the couple took to Ella's Americana Folk Art Café in Tampa, Florida to fully devote themselves to each other and their nuptials to famed German electro outfit Kraftwerk.

Hardcore fans may recognize David Sanborn from internet headlines reading "Florida Man Changes Name To Kraftwerk" (long story short, he dressed as Kraftwerk for his driver's license picture and photoshopped his name to read "Kraftwerk").  The saga of him playfully changing his name was picked up by outlets all over the globe and even ran in Kraftwerk's hometown newspaper Der Rheinische Post.

Locals probably know both David and Jen from their DJ gigs at the restaurant's Wax Wednesdays vinyl night, and they invited the Kraftwerk-attired public to last night's ceremony where Orlando, Florida's DJ Q-Burns Abstract Message played the tunes and Tampa's own record shop owner/ordained minister Keith Ulrey made it all official.

Brian Mahar was there to grab the photos you see below.
