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.
