The lucky couple will win wedding amenities that include “a ceremony inside the exhibit, a reception for up to 200 guests at the Science Center and a two-night stay at a “Star Trek” suite at the MGM Grand Detroit.”
Mellis and Gruba started their romance when they first met in a basic paint class at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
Both are not ashamed to open up to their nerdy side says Mellis, who, along with Gruba is a fan of typical geek fare such as “Dune” novels, “Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Wars” and obviously, “Star Trek.”
Of course, “that’s not to say they’ll have a phalanx of Klingons at their wedding. They want to project a fun sort of elegance without conveying silliness,” according to reports.
While many may think the “Star Trek” wedding is a little bit geeky, Gruba believes there’s significance to it.
“There are two visions of the future,” says Gruba. “One is pessimistic and apocalyptic. ‘Star Trek’ symbolizes hope, knowledge and exploration.”
