Planning on doing something different for your wedding day and don’t know where to start? Maybe your looking for a Gothic wedding dress or a Doctor Who themed wedding cake? Or maybe you just want to start at the beginning and find a planner that understands ‘your style’? Well there’s a new wedding show in town, promising to be like no other wedding show you’ve ever seen or been to before.

Artist Alice Carroll made this golden SNES dummy cartridge for couple Ben and Bethany’s video game themed wedding. Taking the idea of a cake topper and putting a gamer spin on it, the couple inserted the cartridge right into their SNES cake. They also had Zelda wedding rings, Pokemon cufflinks and walked down the aisle to Zelda’s Lullaby.

“I remember the first time we met. It was just like a scene from a romantic comedy.”

Built in 1939 the historical theater Gimle Kino in Oslo, Norway has premiered countless films throughout the ages from French “film noir” to elite art cinema. On July 28th the short film “The Wedding Party” premiered not to patrons and critics, but to friends and family of Inge and Sanne, who screened the film about the couple’s life together just before the bride was to walk down the aisle.

Star Wars Celebration VI wrapped up this Sunday in Orlando, Florida bringing fans together from all over the world to celebrate their love of all things Star Wars, and for one fanboy, his love for a girl named Mary. “The proposal was a surprise. I knew that Jason had a ring, but had no idea what he was planning,”  Mary (a Princess Cast Host and Panels On Pages Contributer) adds, “ I had to work on Thursday and Friday during Star Wars Celebration VI, and it was at that time that he bought a picture and autograph tickets for Carrie Fisher. He surprised me with the tickets on Friday night, and those completely threw me off of any inclination that he might propose.”

A match made in Gears Of War Megan and Jeremiah both met, pwned and fell in love in the third-person shooter from Epic Studios. The couple’s gamer wedding featured a Link and Zelda cake topper, comic book character table names and a Minecraft ring box. Not to be outdone, their cake cutting utensil of choice: a retrolancer (a gun from the video game series) which was bought when Gears of War 3 was released the same day Jeremiah proposed.

Located right behind the Empire State building in New York City and offering 360 degree views of the Manhattan skyline, couple Tiffany and Phil decided to ditch the hotel ballroom opting for a cool and contemporary loft for their city chic wedding.Gary’s Loft has a ‘white canvas’ interior furnished with American folk antiques and shabby-chic furniture. With little to no pre-existing decor, lofts like Gary’s allow couples the freedom to create their wedding from a virtual blank canvas. Rather than cover up the space, Tiffany and Phil added colors and details that would softly standout against the white room. Photographer Abigail Fuqua beautifully captured the couple’s wedding showcasing these soft pops of color from the lavender rose and lace bouquets and pink rose boutonnières by D For Decor florals to the bride’s own collection of tattoos.

To celebrate Star Wars Celebration VI (the biggest party in the Star Wars universe) here’s a cute Star Wars themed wedding cake by Lisa Seidling of Cake Works.

The cake is two-tiers with a Princess Leia bride and Han Solo Groom made from  gumpaste on the bottom tier; with star-fields of fondant on the top tier leading up to the Millennium Falcon and Death Star. The cake (including the Death Star) are red velvet with white chocolate/raspberry cream filling and white chocolate buttercream covered in silver fondant.

What happens when an engineer says “I do”…robot photographers that take pictures of guests and time-lapse video or Judgement Day!

Sacha De’Angeli, an engineer at Simple Switch Labs decided to design his own photo booth for his wedding using a camera, an Arduino and other random electronics as an alternative to renting an expensive photo booth. “I’m getting married, and I didn’t like the options for photo booths, so I made this thing…to make a time-lapse video of my entire event.” Six months and hundreds of prototypes later, the robot photographer known as Photoboop was born.
