My boyfriend planned this proposal about a month before Faire started, and actually kept the secret until it happened! He got the whole group we're in (History of Chivalry - Live Steel Fighters) to participate, too!
This pic is from my wedding 5 years ago. My husband and I met doing medieval re-enacting, so of course we wanted a medieval wedding. It took me 7 months to make everything. I made the beaded trim for his cotehardie—all 8.5 feet of it. There is another 22 inches of beaded fringe on the end of his hat. My dress has 13,000-14,000 individual beads sewn onto the brocade. I also made my jewelry and hair combs. His hat is stuffed with fur from the dog.
5 years ago today, my mom married a man only 5 years older than me. He has been an awesome addition to my family. He stuck by my mom's side through 3 years of cancer treatments.
Unlikely couples are fun to root for! Glad to hear he's been your mom's knight in shining
armor err, kilt!
