I wrote this a while ago but it kinda sums up all the geeky things we will be having, sorry it is a little long but there is alot of geek in us!
Themes. Besides what is your dress going to look like this is the second question that comes out of peoples mouth holes when they find out I am getting married. After two seconds of me talking they realize they don’t want to talk about it any more. Now I don’t have a terrible theme, but most people don’t know much about old school video games, comic books, or Scott Pilgrim (the book and the movie). However they mean everything to us. Scott Pilgrim was a movie that my fiance introduced to me after finding how much of a geek I was and it is one our fave movies we watch together, we even had to kinda “defeat” some evil exes in the start of the relationship. Not only did we both grow up with Super Mario and Zelda, but we spend a lot of time at home placing Mario Cart and Super Smash Brothers together at home. I remember one of the first nights in our first place he was playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time while I was hand sewing our Halloween/Cosplay costumes of Old Gregg and The Funk, and thinking to my self how perfect this picture is. So that is why we decided if we would be having a party for us, might as well make it us, the geeky, video playing, comic book reading us.
Now the second part is based on 500 Day of Summer, our other movie that we love. Some people might criticized that they break up in the end and how it is a sad movie, but we don’t see it like that. It a movie about how real life is. And how their relationship was in the beginning, all fun and laughs, that is us. The only difference is I did not run when I got scared. I won’t lie, normally I run like hell when I get nervous or stuck to far into a relationship, but just how Summer knew about the guy in the cafe, I knew about Kyle and I stayed. Best choice of my life too! Besides all the mushy meanings, Hall and Oates “You Make My Dream Come True” has been one of our theme songs since Kyle flipped out in my friends car when he heard it on the radio and sang it like a pre-teen girl. The style of the movie is what we are going for though, the urban yet vintage look. Let me tell ya, Kyle can rock a vest like no tomorrow and I actually do pin up vintage modeling on the side, so it just fit. There will be lots of twinkling lights and paper cranes( out of comic books to tie in Scott Pilgrim) and hopefully on a roof top some where. Oh yeah and karaoke!
There will be legos! I grew up on them and one day when I have kids they will too. Story behind the legos is one day Kyle and I took a stroll down the street and after he grabbed my hand, he stopped looked at it and said “We fit together like we were two legos.” I swooned and blushed for a long time, till I found out it was from an LMFAO song “La, La, La” we had been listening to for a while now (He always thought of me when he heard that song and “Little Hipster Girl”). But it was true he is my lego. We even got almost matching tattoos on our year anniversary, mine is a painting of Audrey Kawasaki’s “My Dishonest Heart” but instead of a real heart I have a lego heart with a piece missing and he has the missing lego piece on his chest above his heart. When we sleep the tattoos touch, so sappy I know! We will ave little lego people in the center pieces and I am going to construct a lego poster as our guest book. Also I am working on getting Lego heart temp tattoos made to put in the program.
To kinda pull everything together we wanted to narrow down our color choice we will have, so we didn’t think to hard about it. Kyle’s fave color is light blue, mine is yellow. Add in some light grey and dark brown for accents and there you go! I know light blue and yellow don’t really go with November, but we are in South Florida. It will still be looking like summer till December or even January.
Now I am not saying there won’t be other references in the wedding, the paper swans on the gift boxes are after Prison Break since it was the first show we watched in full, His grooms cake is based off of Dexter’s breakfast open credited (Blue Moon cake with Blood Orange filling and maybe a little sprinkled candy bacon on top with the art work), a lot of binary coding since we both use to do graphic design and web site coding, and Admiral Snackbar’s Jello Shot bar that I will be making instead of a sweet table. But I am super excited every time I start a project for our wedding because I know it will show us and it will be worth it. Plus the Smile on his face when he sees the final product is heart warming.
