Nerd alert - Star Trek wedding!

I'm glad that it has suddenly become somewhat cool to like Star Trek. I'm just going to come out and say it - I like Star Trek better than Star Wars. Hey, where are you going?

Brad and Kate met almost three years ago at a Star Trek convention in Chicago and last March got engaged on stage at a Star Trek convention in New Jersey. The couple was ecstatic when they learned of the opportunity to marry on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise at The Franklin Institute. “Nothing would make us happier than to be able to pledge our lives to each other in the Star Trek universe, among our family, friends, and fellow Star Trek fans,” the couple stated in their contest entry.

[Sorry for the Press Release wording...] The Franklin Institute is partnering with WMMR-FM to give away the Star Trek wedding. The wedding package includes: exclusive use of STAR TREK: THE EXHIBITION for the ceremony, a private space inside The Franklin Institute for a four-hour reception, a wedding cake and champagne provided by Frog Commissary Catering, and two nights’ accommodations provided by The Independent Hotel in Center City Philadelphia.

[About the exhibition] Produced by Premier Exhibitions, Inc. and licensed from CBS Consumer Products, STAR TREK: THE EXHIBITION is a 12,500 square foot interactive exhibition containing the world’s most comprehensive collection of authentic Star Trek ships, costumes and props from over 40 years of Star Trek. Making its East Coast debut at The Franklin Institute, the Exhibition runs through September 20, 2009.

How exciting for them! I've read about weddings at Star Trek conventions and Klingon weddings, but this sounds like more fun (to me). I would love to put on my favorite dress and hang around a Star Trek exhibition (and the open bar) all night.
