These two pulled in their family and friends to help out: it turns out they're related to a minister, a florist, and the pair of photographer-videographer-DJs that make up Post & Beam Co. The love these guys have for nature is clear — there are so many animal and plant touches. These guys are also big-time Wes Anderson fans, and used a bit of the filmmaker's style — especially with references to Fantastic Mr. Fox.

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 an all-era time travel costume wedding! Think amazing decor (including light-up centerpieces!), a chihuahua in a dress, and a mysterious Time Lord officiant coming out of the smoke! This theatrical pair KNOWS how to throw a multi-talented party.
I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that Sean is a pretty massive Indiana Jones fan — what with the fact that he dressed up as Indy for his wedding and all. His equally costume-enthusiastic bride, Urania, swapped out her full-length wedding gown for a N7 (the special forces in Mass Effect) ensemble later in the night, and costumes donned by guests included Harry Potter, knights, and a Gingerbread Man.
There is so much SWEET, sweet goodness in this wedding! Looking for a dancing astronaut? Here you go! Want to see a bride dressed as Little Red Riding Hood while being escorted by a wolf? Right here. There are also skull cake toppers, red polka-dot flats, and centerpieces featuring posts from various horror movies (including The Shining). Basically: it's a creeptastic Halloween wedding dreamscape.
Clapperboards, film rolls, and superheroes, oh my! It must be a movie-themed wedding… this time in Brazil! The couple planned to head off to London the day after the wedding, so it was a whole lot of packing and planning to make this all come together in time. And we think you'll love the adorable moments during the ceremony. Here's a hint: the groom may have futzed up rock-paper-scissors!
Let me just lay this right here: a tentacle aisle, tentacle bouquets, a pineapple print dress, fold-out fan programs, horror movie centerpieces, and a flesh-eating martian owlopus. You read that right. Oh, and some sage advice meant for a pre-teen that totally applies to all of us. Let us know if you spot the MINGLO, too!
The bride's custom Regency era-style gown was enough to get me digging this wedding, but it's also got a cake with LoTR and Green Lantern details, geeky place card quotes, a Ghostbusters and Wagner processional, and a no-joke killer gorgeous venue. They may have encountered some geek-wary resistance at first, but who wouldn't be won over by this Jane Austen-meets- geek wedding?
Dinos, Dorothy, and DeLoreans?! Yep, we've got an awesome natural history museum full of dinosaurs, ruby red Dorothy slippers, and Back to the Future in their trivia game. OH, and don't let me forget the EPIC DeLorean cake! It will make your '80s-loving day. Plus, you'll love how they chose their wedding date. Spoiler: it was to make one of them right!
We teased this contender for most geeky references ever in a wedding a couple of weeks ago, and now you'll get the whole story AND all the fandom references we know you want! We're talking Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Firefly, World of Warcraft, Dracula, Sherlock, Transformers, Myst, Diablo… GASP… Portal, Lord of the Rings, Mario… WHEW, I can't even go on. There's too many. Go on without us. But know that it's dangerous to go alone. Take this wedding.
It all started with a birthday card featuring purple and white dragons… and led to the gothic splendor that is this richly-hued fairytale wedding. There's a little bit for geeks, a little bit for film buffs, and a whole lot for those in the mood for romance. And when you see the details of the rich purple taffeta custom-made dress, you'll swoon.
Slogging through traditional love quotes can be taxing, especially when you just want something that tingles that geek-loving robot heart of yours. We root for the geeky underdog to get the girl and hope the battle over evil ends in a big snog. And we need something relatable for our ceremony readings, invitation wording, and pop culture-filled vows, right? You demand nerdy romance, funny vow ideas, and swashbuckling toast fodder from movies, TV, and a few books? As you wish…
