In general I'm not a fan of pranks, particularly ones that put the prank-ee in an initially uncomfortable position or require them to feign enthusiasm in front of a crowd, but considering the bride and groom's history of being epic Rock fans, I'm tentatively on board for this one. Besides, what says "true love" more than a ceremony filled with earthquake metaphors?
In all seriously, Michelle Nguyen must actually be a magical girl princess, because even though she's a professional event planner and competent seamstress, I still have no idea how she managed to pull this all off. But it certainly worked out for her and her new husband Will, who celebrated their nuptials earlier this month in the classiest, geekiest way possible. And if you're wondering if the senshi bridesmaids got some neat accessories, too? They did. It's wonderful.
It's wedding time! Come on, grab your friends. We'll go to very distant lands. Like New Zealand! That's where this latest geeky wedding took place. Che Saunders and husband Ford are animators in Auckland so it's not such a big surprise they decided to go with a themed wedding. And they were helped with the theme by dressing up the wedding party in Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors items from WeLoveFine!
Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy's Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can't even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Timeand R2-D2 engagement rings.

A few months ago, we featured the engagement shoot of two very adorable Doctor Who fans. It included a TARDIS built by the father of the bride. This time, photographer Davey Morgan has sent us some beautiful images from the wedding itself. And yes, the couple were nice enough to invite the old gal.
The newly-wedded Kelsie Curtis has like, the best dad (and loves our site, BONUS!). For her special day, he made the IT worker a replica remote controlled K-9 to be the ring bearer. He also made the couple a TARDIS cake topper, made out of wood and with a pulsing light on the top, and sonic screwdriver cake cutter. But the fun doesn't stop there, check out the photos Curtis sent us from the ceremony and reception for more geeky highlights!
Because it's Jake.
Comic creator Josh Adams(Doctor Who ongoing, Batman Odyssey) saw Paul Bierker's R2-D2 ring we posted on The Mary Sue a while back and decided he needed to propose to his girlfriend Saori with an equally geeky engagement ring. Adams contacted Bierker with his idea - Jake taking the shape of a ring - and he made it a reality. We're very happy to know we were at least in some way responsible for this happening. Hit the jump to see the finished product on Saori's finger.

Joshua Watson and his then-fiancée Rachel Van Der Merwe joined forces with photographer Jordan Nakamura to re-create posters of some of the couple's favorite movies and TV shows to celebrate the pair's nuptials. The results, as you can see, are really well done, to the point that some of the altered posters even trick Google image search.
Any future husband of mine has to be willing to do this, or the wedding's off.

This Steampunk wedding really takes the cake (har har) when it comes to doing marriage ceremonies in ambitious and unconventional ways! We got permission from the bride to show off her awesome wedding photos, the highlights of which are a striped wedding cake with octopi instead of figurines at the top, mini monorail table settings, and most of all: a ring-bearing robot built and designed by Grant Imahara, friend of the happy couple. How awesome is that?
If you want to see more pictures of the wedding, check out the fantastic marital details in the article over on Offbeat Bride. Congratulations to the bride and groom, and may every wedding be as epic as yours!

When photographer Davey Morgan sent us photos from a recent engagement photo shoot he worked, we realized he was familiar with our audience. Not only did the future newlyweds, Laurie and Justin, go for a Doctor Who theme, the couple mysteriously resembled Rose and The Doctor. And the TARDIS they shot with? Laurie's father built it from scratch, working lights and all. Morgan told us he also shot their wedding this past weekend and we can only hope someone ran away with the bride.
When Heather and Kim got married recently, they celebrated with an amazing superhero themed wedding, down to vintage comic postcards on which guests could write their well-wishes. To cap it off, the two lovely ladies and their guests dined on this awesome Xena/Wonder Woman wedding cake, complete with Xena and Wonder Woman action figues, ready for battle, as the cake toppers. Click on to see Kim and Heather cut their cake (with a sword!) and to enjoy more of their amazing Amazonian wedding photos.
This may be the sweetest, most involved geek proposal I've ever seen. Luke Plastow put together a Lord of the Rings themed scavenger hunt for his girlfriend on Christmas Day last year with the intent of asking her to marry him at the end. He wrote to us to say, "She is a huge Tolkein fan and it seemed right that if I was going to give her a ring it should be LOTR themed. The ring itself is Palladium, with a stone the same colour as Sauron’s eye. The setting for the stone is the same shape as Isengard. Inside the ring is an inscription in Black Speech saying 'One ring to rule them all.' "
Luke, if you weren't already taken...oh wait, you said your fiancé reads our site...best of luck in your lifelong fellowship!

In what may be one of the greatest moments in geek history, it was announced Sir Ian McKellen would marry longtime friend and colleague Sir Patrick Stewart. The only way this story could have been better would be if they were marrying each other.
