You may recognize this pair from Alexa’s Nigerian engagement ceremony bridentity crisis, and we just had to see how it all turned out. It’s a two-ceremony mega-mash of Nigerian and American culture including handmade geles (Nigerian head wraps), geeky details, a sweet candle ceremony, and some flubbed vows that are too funny to miss.
We couldn’t resist mentioning the book arch in this gorgeous wedding in recent Monday Montage, and now Cindy’s giving us the whole bibliography. Folded paper and piles of books abound from aisle decor to bouquets, and from a custom cardbox to their signature arch — but you’re also going to love all the subtle nods to geekery. Book-lovers, get our your library cards and check out all the love!
I profiled nerdy Save the Dates about a year ago — now it’s time for some geektastical wedding invitations in your face. So wipe off your glasses and get a real good look at these geek wedding invites, some of them are even for sale right now, some of them were genius DIY projects from genius nerds in love.
These two initially didn’t know they were planning their wedding on Transgender Day of Remembrance, but they ended up embracing the overlap with a moment of silence and a hymn in honor of the day. They also stuck to their guns when they decided to keep this celebration very small. But there was one member of the wedding party who had to be there: their dog!
A wedding at the Arizona Science Center with beakers full of candy (since they met at a candy shop) and fall-themed details. It’s a combination with which you might just fall for. Check out the richly-hued day with striped socks, live music, and of course, science projects for all!
A rainbow xkcd cake with raptor cake topper, an arcade party with Donkey Kong favors, and a gorgeous garden ceremony that blends tradition while shaking things up. I know this is some of y’all’s dream wedding. And it certainly was for this pair.
