Love it or hate it 3D seems to be everywhere 3D TVs, 3D video games and now 3D wedding proposals. Michael, a technology consultant who spends most of his time consulting on 3D workflows, proposed to his girlfriend Kate in 3D and as she sat watching also felt it in 4D. “When I decided to propose, I thought what better way than to propose in 3D. I hadn’t seen it done before – and that’s enough for me.”

Well he didn’t have to fight all her exes she did send him on a Scott Pilgrim-themed scavenger hunt around the city of Toronto with a very special surprise at the end.

Redditor proposing_gf shared her photos from her inventive and untraditional proposal. She says on Reddit,”we had talked about it before casually. I asked him if he would be upset if I ever asked him and he said no that he thought that was an awesome. I then had to lead him off my trail but telling him that it was never going to happen and that I liked tradition.”

An Austin, Texas wedding in December between two Doctor Who fans; of course their wedding color would be Tardis blue. Austin based wedding photographer Nadine captured the geeky side of this cute couple at their The Winfield Inn wedding. Recalling the day Nadine says, “during her first look, [the bride] brought along her little Tardis, which made “Woosh! Woosh!” spaceship noises when you lift the lid. As she got close to Kevin, she lifted the lid, and he burst out laughing at the unexpected wooshing noise. Then he turned around to see her for the first time. The moment was full of laughter and happy tears, and it really reminded me how blessed I am to be a wedding photographer.”

Bringing to life delicious visions of her clients owner and operator Cathy of the Canadian based The Cake Whisperer created this wedding cake inspired by the German-style board game Settlers Of Catan. “I like to think I was born with a paintbrush in one hand, and an off-set spatula in the other. The Cake Whisperer marries my lifelong passion of the creative arts, with my new found love of baking and pastry,” says Cathy.

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since the cult sci-fi drama Firefly first premiered on September 20th, 2002, and to this day remains one of my favorite television shows. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, I wanted to post an easy tutorial for recreating Kaylee’s colorful parasol for your wedding. A great accessory for an outdoor wedding to shade the bride or bridal party; you can also make mini versions to put in your reception’s floral centerpieces.

Days before their Disney World wedding bride Morgan and her Simpsons fan Husband to be, ordered this cute groom’s cake themed after the opening of The Simpsons. The Marge and Homer bride and groom figurines the couple found on Etsy made the perfect cake topper.

When I first came across Gobo Studio I immediately fell in love with photographer Hien Nguyen’s photos and his Tim Burton inspired Corpse Bride photo shoot. With a background in 3d film/animation Hien shoots everything from everyday portraits to zombie themed engagement shoots.

A personalized photo guest book for your wedding is something truly unique. It’s easy to make your own comic book wedding guest book with your favorite photos or engagement photos. Use Photoshop or any other photo program to arrange your photos in a comic book layout and then add blank comic bubbles for your guests to write in. For this book, I actually used my wedding photos (since I didn’t take engagement photos). I started with a black background (you can also use white) and arranged my photos on top leaving even spacing between them. Then all you need to do is get your pages printed out and bound into your very own comic book.
