The Little Touches Make A Great Legend Of Zelda-Themed Wedding

Jaded as we are, we're still thrilled to see a couple of Nintendo loving nerds like Kotaku reader Kyle and his recently wedded wife take The Legend of Zelda wedding theme to the next level. The classy level.

Of course, Kyle and Mrs Kyle had a custom made Triforce cake - obligatorily pictured below - but it's the Zelda cartridge cufflinks that the groom and groomsmen wore during the ceremony that ups the video game wedding contest. If my eyes and memory are accurate, that's The Legend of Zelda (NES), Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES), The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES), The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time (N64), The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64) and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (GameCube) keeping these gentlemen's cuffs from flapping in the breeze.

How nerd-cool is that?

Oh, did somebody want cake?

Kyle's threatening to send video of some of the Zelda-themed wedding's nerdier moments our way, but until he does, congratulations to the bride and groom for getting hitched in such a Hyrulian fashion.

Thanks, Kyle!


    There are a lot of game-based weddings these days. I was thinking when he first said "groomsmen were Zelda games" I was visualising giant cartridges walking down the isle with the bride and groom.

    That cake looks great. Now I'm imaging a bride and groom walking down the isle to one of OoT's tunes, dammit.

      I imagine that when they present the rings, the tune that plays when opening a treasure chest is heard. Da da da daaaa!

      Heh, let's just hope Majora didn't show up beforehand to turn Kyle into a purple-headed child.

        The Anju/Kafei sidequest was great.
        "I wonder why the Mailman is heading to the Laundry Pool..? *follows*.."

        Also, has the community stopped with the whole "it's not Hyrulian; it's Hylian!" thing?

    Game based weddings are great, but this one is different - it is subtle. Most GBW's are in your face, but this is fun, without losing it's sweetness.

    To Kyle: thanks for the photos.

    To everyone: Control Alt Delete (the webcomic) just had a wedding, with two issues desicated to the gaming themed vows of the bride and groom.

    I know this is a pretty old article, but does anyone know where i can get those cufflinks?
