Dan and Katie's wedding was a science nerds DREAM. They got engaged and knew they wanted to tie the knot on the day of the big solar eclipse in Nashville. They actually ended up winning their entire wedding day from the Adventure Science Center through their "Elope at the Eclipse" contest. So it's now a dream for double the reasons.

They rocked a small, sweet ceremony in front of their closest family members… and all of the local news stations(!). Their eclipse wedding was televised as they exchanged their vows, and they were interviewed several times throughout the day from both local and international news and radio stations.

It gets better: their first dance was on the main stage at the Solar Eclipse Festival at the Science Center and their "reception" included a private viewing party of the Eclipse on a roof that overlooks Downtown Nashville.

Katie had a gorgeous wedding dress that she got at the last minute (less than 48 hours before the wedding) and all alterations were done in less than 24 hours! Her bouquet came straight from a local flower truck nearby. Katie has a unique and stylish mid-finger wedding band which is blowing our minds.

Y'all NEED to see this one and mark it in your brain as total science-meets-love magic…
