Travel through Tatooine, Middle Earth, Westeros & more at this pop culture travel-themed wedding (with April Fools pranks!)

Our geekdom runs deep and we're known to throw themed parties, so settling on a single fandom felt forced for an event of this magnitude. Instead, we decided to put a little bit of everything we love together for a truly unique experience. For a while, though, nothing fit together. Plus, we were annoyed by traditions that felt were “expected.” So, we identified what really mattered: bringing the people we love together and staying true to ourselves.

Then something clicked for our theme: inspired by a wall in our home covered in fictional maps. We chose a Pop Culture Travel theme!

Journey to the center of the Earth at this Iceland volcano wedding 700 feet down!

Southern Australian couple, Petra and Jan, decided that their bucket list included a two-day Iceland volcano wedding with their three sons joining them as guests. They wanted to be the first to marry somewhere unforgettable in Iceland, inside a VOLCANO. They were married 700 feet down into the Earth. Just wait until you hear the whole story to the center of the Earth…

A tiny party for humans, cats, and Bigfoot at a CAT LOUNGE

We canceled the planning of the big wedding and decided to elope with one friend and an awesome photographer. We held out cat lounge wedding at Purrington's Cat Lounge.

It was a day of cats, chocolate cake, sprinkles, and one of our faves, Bigfoot!

We're planning two weddings: family-friendly AND kink-friendly

One of things my fiancé and I most cherish about our relationship is that we lead the kind of double-life worthy of one of the superhero comic books he loves so much. Normally, we are responsible, hard-working citizens who live and parent together in a small, quiet town. But after a quick change in a phone booth (aka, when my ex has the kids and we travel), we become adventurers well-versed in kink and non-monogamy who love to find weird bars, get tattoos, and go out dancing until the wee hours of the morning.

So it stands to reason that we have to plan not one but two weddings…

A dashing self-officiating urban elopement (with a rock star cameo!)

Sheannette and Paul met when she bought a mid-century desk from him via Craigslist! It was basically love at first sight after that. For their chic urban elopement in Denver, they rode around town in a limo to visit three different locations and create some gorgeous shots with their two children. Oh, and while they were there? They ran into a super famous rock star just chilling with his dogs. Let's see the whole stunning display at this self-officiating urban elopement…
