This gaming couple found a creative way to incorporate their love of Borderlands into their upcoming wedding. Sharing her invite on Reddit Bansh33 says, “My fiance and I got into Borderlands shortly after we started dating. We spent hours a day on our characters. When Borderlands 2 came out, we got to do it all over again!” judging by her fiance’s previously completed missions which include; appearing as a contestant on American Ninja Warrior and Guinness World Records: Gone Wild for “Most Items Kicked off Peoples Heads in a Minute” I expect some ninja moves on the dance floor will be in order to complete the couple’s wedding mission.
Electrical Engineer Bill Porter proposed to his girlfriend in a very unique and geeky way, he etched the words “Mara will you marry me?” into a PCB (printed circuit board). What followed says Bill, “is the usual happy ending movie proposal; tears, kisses, everything you would expect. I don’t need to go into details. The bottom line is it worked; she said YES! She was so caught off guard by how I did it she couldn’t stop laughing for a long time after.”
Now in the initial stages of planning for their ‘circuits and swirls’ wedding, Bill and his fiancé Mara have scraped convention once again and applied their engineering degrees into creating custom electronic wedding invitations. “Not content with plain old paper invitations my fiancé Mara and I smashed our geeky heads together to come up with a design that keeps with our circuits and swirls theme,” says Bill. “We decided to be more literal, by putting actual circuits into our invitations!”
It wasn’t the programing or electrical elements that challenged the couple during the making of but the number of invites coupled with the time spent on design and the cost of the components.
These Back to the Future fans didn’t need to hit 88 mph to shoot some seriously awesome save-the-dates! With a little help from one Atlanta based Delorean owner this geeky pair had the opportunity to shoot with a movie replica for the day, without disrupting the space-time continuum (I hope). “We wanted to somehow incorporate our love of the movies into our Engagement Shoot and our Save the Dates, explains bride to be Abbie, “unfortunately, neither one of us knew anyone with a DeLorean handy or a flux capacitor.” So the pair did a little digging and found a site that helps connect DeLorean owners to events and car shows.
