How many fandoms can you count in this nerdy wedding theme? From Doctor Who to Star Trek, this couple knows how to get their nerd on (spoiler: barrels of homemade mead are involved).
The theme to our wedding was pretty simple: "these are a few of our favorite things." One of the things that made us fall for each other was our similar interests from childhood. We wanted our wedding to be full of nostalgiac whimsy and, most importantly, us. From the first day we were engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Childrens Fairyland in Oakland, a place near and dear to our hearts. You better believe I called the venue that first day while laying on the beach in Hawaii.
A wedding on a train with a gorgeous brunch spread on a Sunday? Sign us up! Add in the adorable Ring Pop exchange with the groom’s new stepson, the awesome kids’ activity table, Star Trek details galore, and the bar after-party, and we’re in love with this brunch wedding on a train. Oh, and want happy guests? This ice cream truck surprise is a surefire win.
The bride, Rian, wore a beautiful custom suit from Duchess Clothier with three different pairs of shoes, including a pair of light-up Hover Kicks. She said her inspiration was Janelle Monae with a nod to Michael Jackson. It’s our wedding suit DREAM. Don’t miss Rian and her father wowing everyone with their dance to Janelle Monae’s “Tightrope.”
Okay okay, so I know a lot of you will be rocking white dresses at your wedding (and that’s rad in itself!), but just in case you’re planning to rock a seriously epic print dress, let me offer this galaxy print wedding dress for your consideration. Of course, if it’s not right as your wedding dress, can we at least see galaxy print bridesmaids? Oh it will fill our space-loving hearts with joy.
May the fourth be with you today. Lightsaber fights, Pop Vinyl Leia and Captain Kirk cake toppers, mixed paper + real greenery bouquets, Star Trek insignias, fandom character-named tables, Vader candies, all on top of a whole lot of glamour. It’s your fifth grade party dream all wrapped up in an elegant Star Wars wedding package. Come see how this couple made it happen.
