When Comic-Con speed dating leads to wedded bliss: a nerdy theater celebration #Wedding Porn#bearded groom#brides in glasses#cake alternative#comic books#movie theater#movies#muppets#new york#puppets#theater Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jan 2 2014) Stephanie Kaloi Photos by: Dan Aguirre All photos by Dan Aguirre. Sarah and Shane first met at a Comic-Con Speed Dating event, and their love for movies, Doctor Who, and puppets brought them together. They got married at the Scotia Cinema in New York, where guests were greeted with popcorn and 3D glasses, and then peppered with trivia questions about the couple's relationship. Shane, a comic book illustrator, designed the wedding program himself. Guests munched on slices of an INCREDIBLE Van Gogh-inspired cake and then the two newlyweds snuck off for a little one-on-one Kermit-viewing time. Vendors!
