A while back we told you about Dorian and Lynn, their Millennium Falcon wedding cake and its Bounty Hunter guard. Well, we promised you some more and more there is!
We offer this wedding as a perfect example of how to take the things you love and incorporate them into a ceremony and reception that is truly yours and yours alone. For Dorian and Lynn, that meant choosing to get married at the the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Getting married smack-dab in front of a T-Rex!
Incorporating references to Jurassic Park, Star Wars, World of Warcraft, Serenity and Battlestar Galactica into their ceremony and reception.
And choosing the museum diorama that most resembled the planet Hoth as the perfect location for their wedding cake.

It’s not just Dino, not just Star Wars – and both doesn’t even do it justice. This wedding can only be Dorian and Lynn’s spectacular wedding. And THAT is what made it so darn cool!
