Nerd Alert: Ben and Colleen

When two nerds fall in love and get married it really is the best revenge, because their weddings are BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE'S. Take Colleen and Ben's for example. You may recognize the groom - Ben Tully was a contestant on the TBS competition show King of The Nerds. Colleen is a bonafide Vine celeb, whose hilarious 6-second  shenanigans have amassed over 14 MILLION loops.

Obviously, the best way to introduce this wedding is with a proper television opening credit sequence. Behold:

The wedding was literally held at Hogwarts. Or, rather, an AirBnB property that looked exactly like it could be Hogwarts. Upon arrival, Muggles were greeted with a map of the venue...

How do you say... "Where is the bathroom?" in Gobbledegook?

...And the bride's bouquet - chillin' below at the sweetheart table, ready to party - was made of ORIGAMI PAPER FLOWER created from THE PAGES OF HARRY POTTER BOOKS.

Potterheads, don't stop reading. You're going to need to see the rest of this.

There are so many details to covet about Ben and Colleen's nuptials that we literally don't even know where to start. So we compiled a checklist of everything we love about this wedding:

R2D2 as Ring Bearer? Check.



Table settings inspired by the couple's favorite movies and TV shows? Check.

Handcrafted Harry Potter wands for guest favors? Check.

GAHHHHHHH we were so obsessed with these wands that we HAD to know how to rip it off (immitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guys). Here's what the bride said: "Basically I got wooden dowels, then put hot glue gun on it in any pattern, painted them different shades of brown (sometimes using multiple colors), and finished them with a glossy spray finish."

Yasssss, Colleen. Yas.


Back to our checklist... Dino decor? Ch-ch-check it out:

Hippogriff head? Obvious check.

Epic dance party? CHECK AND CHECK.

Congrats to Colleen and Ben, we can't stop geeking out over these incredible wedding details!
