Stranger Things Star David Harbour Officiates Fan's Wedding Thanks to Twitter Challenge
Stranger Things fans might remember back in January when Chief Hopper actor David Harbour made a kind of crazy agreement with an engaged fan. Seems the actor has a sweet spot just like his character!
Ericka Millholland from Springfield, Illinois tweeted at Harbour, asking how many retweets it would take for him to officiate her wedding. Surprisingly, the 43-year-old actor replied the next day, requesting 125,000 retweets, to read a love letter of his choosing, and to cut the first piece of wedding cake.
125k retweets. Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony. I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece. #allthecakes https://t.co/rSku8qD7uT

Harbour's list of demands were ultimately met, as Millholland got almost 132,000 retweets. The actor went on to get ordained, and performed the marriage ceremony this weekend. The best part? He was dressed as Hopper!
Taking to Twitter, Harbour shared a photo from the wedding with his fans, making sure everyone knew he held his promise. "And so me and some fun folks in Springfield, Illinois made good on our promise we made all those months ago," he wrote.
Hey internet. I know it’s been awhile. I retreated. Needed some space. You probably get it. But I’ve been thinking about ya in the interim. And all your retweets. And so me and some fun folks in Springfield, Illinois made good on our promise we made all those months ago. pic.twitter.com/fZK8zNMQSi

The wedding is hardly Harbour's first time granting a fan request on social media. Back in October, he agreed to take senior photos with a high school student from California, who reached out to him via Twitter.
Come January, Harbour was there in a full on photoshoot with Damaris Fregoso.
It's great to know such a fan-favorite actor not only acknowledges his fans, but actually hangs out and does hilarious stuff with them as well. We'll see more of Harbour when Stranger Things returns for Season 3 in summer 2019.
