true wetsuits

Yes, that is a guy getting out of the water in a business suit—but don’t worry about him. He hasn’t snapped under the pressure of his demanding job. Quicksilver Japan’s “True Wetsuits” include a jacket, pants, and tie made with two-millimeter super high-stretch jersey Neoprene and a shirt made from Drylight which is a special fabric made in conjunction with 3M.

You can choose a black suit, blue suit, or tuxedo suit if you want to be a super fancy surfer. Not sure how your boss or other surfers will feel about your look, but you just keep being you on the beach or in the boardroom.

jen and joshua wedding 1

Writing about geeky weddings is always fun, but getting to write about a geeky wedding in which a friend of yours is the bride? That’s awesome.

If you know just how big a Star Wars fan Jennifer is, then it’s no surprise that she would go all out for her wedding. From the cake toppers to the table cards and everything in between, there’s a lot of Star Wars going on. But the amazing thing is how they managed to make everything so beautiful and elegant.

As Jennifer told Green Wedding Shoes:

“From the moment we started planning, my now-husband and I decided that we wanted our wedding to be intimate, fun, and a reflection of who we are as a couple. In terms of the details and decor, we tried to create an atmosphere that was whimsical, romantic, and modern. Since I’m a lifelong Star Wars fan, I knew I had to incorporate my fandom into some of the wedding details. The cherry on top for both of us was getting Stormtroopers from the 501st Legion to be a part of the wedding. It was an absolute dream come true!”

zelda wedding 1

Alex and Grace met through a mutual friend and both of them joined a gaming group that got together every week to play titles like Dungeons and Dragons and Link’s Crossbow Training. They became friends but didn’t start dating immediately—and when they did, it was long distance. As you might guess from the title of this post, they eventually got engaged and decided on a Legend of Zelda themed wedding. They explained to their photographer:

We are both huge fans of the Legend of Zelda video game series by Nintendo and our mutual love of the game has been a pretty strong point in our relationship. Alex and I both had seen quite a few articles about game-inspired weddings on websites like Kotaku and Offbeat Bride, and 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.

The Zelda touches included cupcakes topped with green rupees, elf ears for the bridal party, potion cocktails, and subtle placement of the Triforce symbol.

Karen and Charles Kent (yes Kent!) have a thing for Superman—Smallville in particular. The couple’s wedding was inspired by the long running series about Clark Kent, with the event actually taking place at Hatley Castle in British Columbia. You may recognize it as the Lex Luthor mansion from the series. It’s also been featured in the X-Men films and on Arrow. It’s the superhero/villain estate of choice.

Their wedding featured red, blue, and yellow colors in the classiest way possible, and the groom donned a Superman cape for parts of the event. They even explored Smallville filming locations during their honeymoon.

As you’ll see in the pictures and video after the break, it’s a nerdy dream wedding done right.
