Black and white stripes, a sexy pin-up dress, long black gloves, and a groom in red — this wedding is very enticing. Add in all of the video game references (including in the vows!), and you've got the best combination of gamer geeks and total hotties. Don't miss the Mario centerpieces and the bride's swanky top hat and Batman ring!

Oh, hello fabulous and colorful venue of our dreams. You're hosting a super elegant Scotland-meets-America wedding featuring a bride with a red faux-hawk and a slew of men in kilts? Oh, you do know what we like. Lots of DIY projects, origami bouquets, and amazing mural decor? Now you're just putting us on. Guess we'll have to just see it to believe it.
Native to South Caroline, Tammy and Patrice eloped to Washington, marrying each other at Seattle Glassblowing Studio. Photographer Jeanne Phinney credits officiant Elaine Way with organizing a lot of the wedding's details, particularly the unique ceremony. The couple signed a handmade ketubah they had brought with them and, with the help of studio artisans, created a custom piece of blown glass for their unity ritual! I'm loving how focused the artist is while the couple snuggles in the background. Sexy, artsy, romantic.
Fire Flowers, MegaMan, Bob-omb, Mario, Link, and the making of player twos… this is a gamer geek's wonderland. You have to see the costumes, the 8-bit cakes, and of course, the TRIFORCE UNITY CEREMONY! Come geek out and get your game on. Just don't nibble the favor soap!
This bird-themed wedding started with the perfect wildlife preserve venue. Flocks of fauna and a peacock circle made for some feather-y awesomeness. Except for when one very bold goose decided to invade the ceremony. But aside from rogue geese, this gorgeous wedding was luminous. Wait until you see the bride's amazing feather sleeves!
For this Swedish couple, 'til death do us part just isn't going to work. They embraced the theme, "Far longer than forever," complete with skeletons to represent everlasting love. With rich red and black details and a gorgeous church backdrop, we'll be in love with this wedding forever, too. Oh, and just wait until you see their matching skeleton shoes!
Karen and Kaitlin met at Plymouth University in New Hampshire, so, of course, it became their perfect venue for a fall wedding. Photographer Sarah Vanessa says that the couple had an unplugged wedding, a concept we've talked about before here.
The photos don't lie: Karen and Kaitlin look like they had the best day revisiting their college haunts. Please ooh and ahh with me as we enjoy the wedding dress (dat neckline), the bow tie, the vest, and wow, that reception dress.
We heart this casual New Zealand wedding with lawn games, lots o' kids, and even more paper flowers. Plus, you'll love the groom's skull ring, the bride's retro dress, and their sweet favorite moment. And just wait until you see how they almost missed their officiant at the ceremony!
Pick a side: Horde or Alliance for this geektastic World of Warcraft, LEGO, and crafted weapons (worthy of the best cosplay) wedding. Instead of a sweetheart table, a loot table… instead of traditional table numbers, raid bosses. Pick your weapon, regen your mana, and get ready to raid at this wedding worthy of the word "WoW."
An backyard engagement pool party becomes a surprise wedding complete with the couple quite literally taking the plunge after they got married! Some friends may have had to pick their jaws up off the floor, but it was a wild surprise wedding ride that made for a low budget, high fun day.
A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!
