We’ve got Michelle and Phil’s “Oscars in space” wedding coming soon, but I couldn’t wait to share their geektastic Star Wars meets Star Trek dessert bar. It’s the final frontier in satisfying your sweet tooth at the reception. We’re talking Wookiee cookies, Death Star cake balls, Star Trek iced cookies, pretzel lightsabers, and R2-D2 oreos. Plus there were even themed drinks like “The Beverly Crusher” and “The Dark and Stormy Side.” Let’s take a sneak peek before we see their full wedding later this week.
We’ve compiled collections of free fonts for your sweet and romantic wedding invitations and for your gothically delicious horror and Halloween wedding invitations. But today we’re indulging in our nerdy fandoms for some free geeky fonts for your superhero, magical, sci-fi, timey-wimey, and movie-themed DIY wedding invitations.
A surprise wedding is one thing. A surprise wedding with a Star Trek and LEGO theme is another. But a surprise Star Trek wedding planned entirely by the maid of honor?! Now that’s a whole other level of new for us. But when you see the photos, we think you’ll agree that it turned out fabulously. Just wait until you see the first look, the Tim Horton’s donuts, the Star Trek cake, and the awesome dancing.
This wedding is such an awesome mix of geeky and traditional: Star Trek meets Conservadox Judaism. Although this pair encountered some family drama, they totally triumphed with their chosen family and kicked ass in their Starfleet uniforms, Vulcan ears, and lovely garden ceremony.
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!
Seattle-based officiant Elaine Way was contacted by our Trekkie couple of the day (John and Becky) and asked if she would dress in full character for their ceremony. The character they had in mind was none other than Q, aka the bossy enlightened know-it-all from Next Generation. Since Becky and John are full-blown Trekkies, we also have the entire ceremony AND a wedding video!
