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!

Emily and Tim take the prize for masters of subtlety. At a glance, you may not even notice the bitchin' geeky and superhero details because everything is just so damned elegant! But those details are there and they are FUN: a little red capelet (to match Emily's subtle fire engine red hair streaks), D20 cookie favors, and their Batman and Superman sneakers.
One thing you must know about this couple, Karl and Kristina, is that they had this engagement shoot. Yep, that's a cosplay of the anime series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which was a shared interest when they met. Their wedding, while not an exercise in cosplay, totally had veins of their anime love throughout (including the main characters of their favorite show as the cake toppers!).
Superheroes, NERF guns, fancy lighting, and an epic fireworks show with heart-shaped fireworks? You know we're in like Flynn. Just try and hold back the goosebumps when you hear what the best man said to his big brother. SO CUTE! We're in for geeky, we're in for awesome… we're in for geeky awesome!
