Questions

1. Do you plan weddings? No, I’m not a wedding planner.

2. Why do you have ads? To fund supplies for diy projects, original content and of course the fees to keep this site running.

3. Can I feature images from WGW on my site? Of course, just link back to my post and be sure to also get the photographer’s permission for wedding and engagement photos.

4. How can I get my photos on When Geeks Wed? See the submission page for info.

5. Do you have any photos from your wedding? Here are a few from my October 31st, 2010 wedding taken by the talented photographer DeAnna Gallardo. My wedding was on Halloween, the theme was zombie/Gothic, and I wore a silver wedding dress instead of a traditional white one. Our friend who was our officiant made an extremely elaborate skeleton priest costume to wear, which everyone thought was incredible (even our families surprisingly). I did a lot of diys for my wedding: the flowers arrangements or the ceremony, menus, programs, favors and table numbers because I would have had to get these things all custom made to match the zombie theme. I figured why have someone else do what I could do myself (plus it saved us a lot of money). The geekiest part of my wedding – was when I walked down the aisle to the theme to Halo the video game.
