At 'Wedding Games' in Nipomo, friendly competition and a fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Central Coast wedding vendors blew off some steam Sunday with fun and friendly competition while raising money for victims of the Thomas fire.

Games and relays at the "Wedding Games" event in Nipomo included a bouquet toss with a water balloon launcher, a wedding cake eating contest and the "aisle gauntlet" -- in which a swarm of people with pool noodles and iPad cutouts represented the selfie sticks and Apple products that can get in a wedding photographer's way. 

"We took wedding events that we usually film and we kind of manipulated it to make it a game" said photographer Patrick Ang, one of the event's organizers. 

The games cost $20 per participant and $10 per spectator. Ang said the  games raised about $2,000 for victims of the Thomas fire, California's largest wildfire in history, which sparked last December and charred more than 280,000 acres and destroyed over 1,000 structures. 

"This is what we wanted to do to give back," Ang said.
