Our short ceremony had music by the Smiths, The Cure, and Type O Negative, as well as an officiant dressed as a friar. The ceremony highlighted with nerdy themes including, but not limited to, X-Men, Star Wars, Stardust, Princess Bride, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Lord of the Rings.

Appetizers were passed around until the bridal party was introduced. We came out dressed as Cyclops and Marvel Girl! The first dance was a mashup of Bella Morte's cover of "Earth Angel" and Volbeat's cover of "Only Wanna be With You." With a bride from Philly and a groom from Buffalo, dinner included cheesesteaks and wings, courtesy of Jeffrey A. Miller Catering. Dracula and Frankenstein pinball games and wedding tattoos were open for all guests to enjoy.

Music included everything from old school hip hop, Motown, industrial, and punk rock. The night was spent dancing and laughing, and was a total blast for all involved. Sparklers lit up our exit at the end of the night.

What was your most important lesson learned?

Always triple confirm everything that you plan, as sometimes people forget things and can lead to a lot of stress at the end of the planning.
