Magical Dark Crystal Wedding Cake

Dark Crystal cake (6)

Takes me back to my childhood. Little Cherry Cake Company did an amazing job capturing every detail from Dark Crystal. The cake features Gelflings Jen and Kira, Skeksis, Fizzgig, Mystic, and more. They recently won a gold medal at Cake International Manchester. I’ve been a huge fan of their magnificent work, since I first saw their Alien and Predator cake back in 2012.

Beautiful Final Fantasy-Themed Wedding

Final Fantasy Themed Wedding (4)

On January 25th, 2014, Charlene Datan (dressed as White Mage) and Choi Elegado (dressed as Squall) tied the knot during a Final Fantasy-themed wedding ceremony. 

“Both me and Choy wanted to do a Final Fantasy-themed wedding since it was Final Fantasy that got us to meet each other,” Charlene tells us via email. “Final Fantasy was the common ground in our relationship. We would talk about Final Fantasy VIII and Choi introduced me to its other series which got me hooked too!”

When they told their respective families they planned to do cosplay during the wedding, the elders were ecstatic, according to Charlene.

“They were really excited to wear costumes of their favorite characters on our wedding! My mother loves Alice in Wonderland and really liked Tim Burton’s version,” she said. “My father and I are fans of Star Wars so he decided to go as Darth Vader (who is literally my father!). My oldest sister loves Star Trek: The Next Generation so she decided to wear the Captain’s uniform.” – they told Coconuts Manila

A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement

I absolutely love Pride and Prejudice! I had to share this wonderful story.

Bethany Alpert arrived at her parents house in Tacoma, Washington on Christmas Eve and was  surprised by her sister exclaiming, “Mr. Bingley had returned to Netherfield at last!” Alpert’s boyfriend, David Slater, planned the whole thing with the help of her parents. With costumes and all, they reenacted the proposal scene from Pride and Prejudice.

On her Reddit page, Bethany commented:

Yes, I am a Jane Austen fan and I was an English lit major. I realized pretty quick what was going on because, my sister was taking pictures and it had my boyfriend written all over it. Also knew that we were going to get engaged at some point, but he still managed to surprise me. The actual proposal came about half an hour into doing all these scenes.

I felt like we had the best of both worlds; I wouldn’t have wanted my whole family to be there for the actual proposal. My sister took photos from a distance for that bit, so she couldn’t hear, and then she left us and we had our own private time together before heading up to the house to be with everyone.

I walked in the house, not expecting my sister to seize me and start exclaiming that Mr. Bingley had returned to Netherfield at last.

Elderly Couple Celebrates 61st Anniversary With “Up” Themed Photo Shoot

On July 20th, 1952, Dorothy and Donald Lutz got married. They only had one photo from their wedding because they were stood up by their wedding photographer. Fast forward 61 years later, their grandson’s wife, a wedding stylist and planner Lauren Wells, surprised the couple with an “UP” themed wedding photo shoot.

“Looking back, Dorothy recalls that — photos or no photos — she got the best gift of all that day, more than 61 years ago.” “I was more excited about being married to the one that I loved very much,” she said. “That was the main thing.” Dorothy told the Boston Globe.
