They got married Jan. 24 in gorgeous Baguio, Philippines.

Saab confessed on her blog that they're both geeks at heart, so they incorporated elements of their fandom love into their wedding.

Their save-the-date was inspired by comic book characters.

The boutonnieres were made from comic book pages — handcrafted by the bride herself!
