It's dangerous to go alone
From their very first meeting Grace and Alex’s love for The Legend of Zelda video game series not only sparked a romance, but the theme for their geeky wedding. ”When we officially started planning our wedding, it seemed like a Zelda theme would reflect our love very well and be enormously fun to plan, says the couple.” Along for the adventure was the couple’s photographer Jerry Wang of Jerry Wang Photography based in Lawrence, Kansas who snapped the beautiful shots of Grace and Alex’s Zelda inspired wedding.
From beginning to end these engagement rings from master jewelry designer Takayas are truly one of a kind. Fans of the designer’s Legend of Zelda wedding collection Melissa and Mike came to the LA based jeweler for their own custom engagement rings inspired by Legend of Zelda’s Triforce and Pokemon’s Mew. The result, two amazing rings for two gamers now forever tied to video games and each other.
This custom Zelda engagement box shared by Redditor Blakplague made for a surprise holiday proposal for a girl, who hopefully said yes, since it’s dangerous to go alone.
This sneaky Link by DeviantArt artist Emma-Is-A-Leaf was created for her brother’s wedding cake. Similar to last year’s hidden Spider-Man the artist wanted to create something that would look like it’s coming out from under the bottom of the cake, and in this case, it’s Link.
Proving he not only produces amazing work but also has amazing clients, master jeweler and owner of Takayas Custom Jewelry Takayas Mizuno’s latest ring collection is fit for any princess of Hyrule.
Drawing inspiration from the Legend of Zelda video game series Takayas created this wedding collection made from white gold, diamonds and yellow gold for the Hyrule Royal Crests on both the men’s and woman’s rings and Hylian Shield on the men’s.
These custom painted wedding heels from Etsy shop Bbee Shoes are pretty amazing. Each one is hand-painted by seventeen year old Alexandra Trim who has been painting shoes since she was thirteen years old! “[the bride] wanted me to paint her mint green wedding shoes with a Mario and Peach wedding theme. I painted two piranha plants on the heels, and fireflowers around the bottoms of the shoes. The sides feature Mario and Peach in front of a castle, as well as Luigi and Wario dressed in tuxedos on the other shoe.”
The dedicated fangirl and baker over at Nerdache Cakes has created some amazingly geeky cupcakes and cakes in the past, but check out her latest creation. This Loki cupcake inspired by the Avengers.
“Loki’s helmet is made from 24 separate fondant pieces, and took over 3 days to put together. It’s pretty screen accurate- besides it being edible! His horns are actually carved pieces of fondant that started as solid rectangles”, says Ant.
Every week, Ant takes requests from a new Fandom and replicates it in cake form. She is currently taking submissions for her Legend of Korra Cake Challenge!

Combing her passion for photography and ceramics Gisel Trujillo began making handmade geek inspired jewelry.
“I began making Halloween inspired earrings and became fascinated with the idea of making clay earrings for myself. Soon enough, I found myself in a Geeky world. It was then that I decided to share my creations with the Etsy world, not expecting this incredible experience.”
Known as the gaming couple among their friends Reshele and Brent incorporated touches of their “geeky” personality into their gamer themed wedding. “PC to console to board games we pretty much play it all. When we were planning our wedding, the one thing we knew for sure we wanted was to reflect that aspect of our relationship. It started with our engagement shoot. We wanted to incorporate our love of games in the clothes we wore to the props we used. During the wedding we wanted to keep things more simple.”
