THE BLOG When Geeks Wed is a Northern California based blog lovingly curated by me (Cassandra) and is a collection of things that I would buy or want to make for my own 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 epic dreams.
THE GIRL My name is Cassandra and I created this blog out of a love for geeky things, video games and web design. I try to update as much as possible but I do have a full time job as a CG Artist. I previously worked in the video game industry for a few years before my current position on a popular CG television series. Besides blogging and work, I’m a gamer girl at heart who loves killing zombies, especially the Call of Duty kind.

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.
