Matt and Asia’s Minecraft wedding

Get ready for an amazing celebration of some geeky gamer love! Matt and Asia are simply the most perfect couple ever. They met through their church (Matt said he fell for her watching her dance, awww) but they truly bonded over the game of Minecraft. They built a house together in the digital world and have been inseparable ever since, both in the game and in real life. Matt even proposed to Asia up on stage at MineCon with the help of the game’s creators. So it was no surprise that Matt and Asia would plan a Minecraft themed wedding, and wow, did they ever. They worked hard and put together an incredible event, which truly reflected their love for Minecraft, ahem, each other! We felt so lucky to capture such an awesome day, both in photos and with a wedding film (at the end of this post). It was a labor of love with lots of DIY and help from some fellow Minecraft lovers. Matt, Asia and friends created the pixel-trees from cardboard boxes and used them to decorate the structural pillars, genius!

The wedding was held at Beatnik Studios in Downtown Sacramento. With its exposed brick walls echoing scenes from the game, what could have been more perfect?

The amazing giant sculptures, which were used at MineCon, were lent to Matt and Asia from artist Greg Aronowitz.

That’sssss a very niccccccce wedding you’ve got there… It’d be a ssssshame if anything were to happen to it…

There was some artwork from the game to help non-Minecrafters to get a feel for what it’s all about.

This is so cool. If you remember from the proposal, JunkBoy, Mojang’s (the creators of Minecraft) Art Developer designed this lovely graphic for Matt to use to pop the question. Jones Soda seriously hooked it UP for the wedding! They provided plenty of bottles featuring different things from the game.

Matt’s vision for the centerpieces was inspired by the grass blocks from the game.

We designed the couple a photo guestbook with little Minecraft touches.

Asia’s “diamond” necklace.

She’s so beautiful!

I love how Asia and her bridesmaids were all wearing red TOMS! So cute and comfy, too.

These 8-bit neckties could not be any more perfect.

“Steve” was an honorary groomsman.

Despite the fact that Matt and Asia had been hanging around together all morning, getting things ready, they still did a first look and I am SO GLAD. It was such an adorable, sentimental moment.

Matt said, “Aww, you’re the best creeper ever.” Ahhh, geek love… ๐Ÿ™‚


Time for get married! The ceremony was full of so much fun and hilarity! You must check out their wedding video to get a taste of it! “Will you take this nerd to be your husband?” was among the words spoken.

Matt and Asia got to toast with the Jones bottles they’d saved from the proposal.

Minecraft cake!
