Welcome to When Geeks Wed, I’m Cassandra, the Editor-in-Chief and Founder. WGW is basically a collection of things that I would want for my wedding (if I could go back and do it all over again that is). What you’ll find on WGW are inspiring articles, interviews, real wedding photos, recipes and DIY projects all to help you plan the wedding of your geeky dreams. I love seeing what others come up with for their special day, and when it comes to geeks, their weddings can be pretty creative and amazingly epic.
When I’m not blogging, I’m a full-time 3D Artist having worked on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series and currently in the video game industry. I’m a gamer girl at heart who loves killing zombies especially the Call of Duty kind.
My blog has been featured on top sites from around the world along with Time magazine’s style page “Top 30 Pinners You Should Follow Now”, interview with Gaming Angels , Big Shiny Robot article “Geeks and Pinterest”, “What You Can Learn From 8 Top Wedding Bloggers” from Evolve Your Wedding Business.

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.
