The photo that started this train of thought was a wedding party recreating the Battlestar Galactica photo that re-imagined Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper. I begged my sister to do it and to let me be the pointing bridesmaid, but she regretfully informed me that the reception hall doesn't have a long head table like that. Sad. :(

Don't worry, Star Trek fans. You've got some wedding love, too. The Las Vegas Hilton was the home of the Star Trek Experience from 1998 until 2008 when, sadly, it closed. But during those magical 10 years, you could get married on the bridge of the Enterprise. I personally wouldn't be comfortable with a heavily armed member of the Borg as a witness, but different strokes for different folks.

Here's a geek-splosion of a wedding. Sure, you're mixing your Marvel and your DC and your Pixar and your George Lucas. And yeah, Rorschach's hanging out in the back, all creepy-like. But I bet this was one heck of a party.

Let's face it, it's not a wedding without cake. One of my favorites right now is this gorgeous creation inspired by one of the xkcd's webcomics.

Best wishes to my darling sister and her charming fiance on a long and lovely life together! Do you think I'll be able to talk her into a few nerdy pics of our own this weekend so we can add to the collection?
