Continuing in the spirit of superhero week here at Offbeat Bride, tag along with us to the Santa Barbara Zoo. Bridget and Sam got married there earlier this spring surrounded by subtle hints of superherodom: Batman cufflinks, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bow tie, the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond cake toppers… wait, what's that? The Doctor isn't a superhero? He is in my heart, okay, let me have my little pleasures, IT TOTALLY COUNTS.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of doctor who posts.
A life-size TARDIS, a TARDIS cake, a Doctor Who officiant, and loads of sci-fi details… you space-theme lovers are in for a treat. Add in the convertible gold dress, the DIYed heart backdrop, and the heart-melting father/daughter waltz, and you'll see how sweet sci-fi can be. Oh, and this bride has some SERIOUSLY good anecdotes for taking on too much and asking for help.
Time Lords, Daleks, the TARDIS, and two hearts… this truly is a Doctor Who extravaganza. The groom tells this tale and you can totally tell that this is truly his dream wedding. We're psyched that this geek boy found his perfect geek girl. Oh, and just try to keep the tears at bay when you read the groom's vows. Siiiiigh.
Erika and Emmanuel chose a Raleigh, North Carolina Moroccan restaurant called Babylon for their ceremony and reception spot. The venue's brightly colored interior and exterior definitely complemented the fun vibe of the day! Wedding decor included wedding flags decorated with hearts and flags that read "Yay" and "Huzzah," and Erika and Emmanuel carried their own "Mr. and Mrs. Emmerika" flags.
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a non-traditional couple totally rocking tradition: ceremony in a church, traditional reception, the works. But don't forget the amazing details like the cake topper, the invitation illustration, and the naked hot-tubbing after hours!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
If you could dream up a geeky celebration of love and life set in a garden, you'd probably come close to the wedding that Olivia and James had at The Old Rectory Bed and Breakfast in Great Malvern (United Kingdom). These guys had two cakes, one with a Lego Stargate scenario on top and the other was a TARDIS), Olivia wore white Batman-adorned Converse, guests were assigned to a spaceship-labeled table for dinner, and Olivia also carried a TARDIS and a Golden Snitch as her good luck charms. AND our very own Catherine designed Olivia's dragon engagement ring!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a pair with a penchant for books, comics, and of course, the 10th Doctor! The groom even wore his signature suit. They both wore Chucks, carried Sonic Screwdrivers, and had a lovely handfasting to boot.
