Sam and Pat are the kind of couple that you want to be friends with as soon as you meet them—they’re down-to-earth, ridiculously cool, and adorably nerdy. From a rooftop first look involving a Pikachu onesie to their dogs stealing the show during their ceremony, everything about their wedding at Room 1520 perfectly reflected their lives together

The best part? Most of this glam-meets-nerdy wedding was DIY.

Sam made her own necklace. She also handmade earrings for all her bridesmaids. Her mom made their amazing Game of Thrones-themed cake. And those amazing flowers? Sam and her Matron of Honor arranged them. All in all, this wedding is proof that DIY can be done well.
