Lesbian Gamers' Wedding + Cake

Lesbian-Cube-Cake.jpg

Who says you have to have the legal right to marry in order to chow down on some companion cube wedding cake? Well not the two lesbian gamers who had a wedding ceremony this September in Australia with plenty of friends, gaming references, anime, and love involved. Their wedding cake is shown at the right, which incorporates their love for the game Portal as well as themselves being captured as characters from the anime Revolutionary Girl Utena.

A lot of the work of prepping for their wedding was through careful planning and a number of DIY projects. They tackled everything from Portal themed music, to creating their own centerpieces, hand-embellished corset, skirts, petticoat and detachable train. If you go to the article on Offbeat Bride you can even see a number of fantastic photos they took in their dresses, playing DS, and doing other geeky and romantic things. My favorite is a picture of their wedding bands laying loving on top of a white DS. Even the bridesmaids get in on the cute photo action.

Overall, I have to say that it's reassuring to see two people so in love that they aren't waiting to make sure the government recognizes what they already know they have with each other. It's even better to see to lesbian gamers geeking it up and letting their true colors show through, together.

Awesooome!!! Nerdy weddings sound like too much fun! Really nice pics and attention to detail too.

Hmmm... Maybe I want a video game wedding too! It would probably revolve around something like Pokemon... Maybe I could try to capture my groom in a marriage ball but only after weakening him with wedding vows and cake. I choose you future husband-chu!!! :3

And my heart grew three sizes today.

As a lesbian, a gamer, and a fan of all things Portal, Utena, and cake related, I have to say this blew me away. Even if it was two guys or a het wedding, the planning and care and awesome and pure love that went into this wedding makes most other weddings look so boring in comparison. I rarely ever gush over stuff like this but wow. It's great to see people getting married out of love instead of reasons like you got pregnant or because you want money or whatever other lame reasons people have.

This is everything right in the world in one package and if I ever get married and my wedding is even 1/1000th as awesome as this, it'll be the best day of my life.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
