Because we met doing stage combat, we decided to have our first "fight" before our first dance. Couldn't have it any other way.
My husband proposed at the Rennissance Festival where I have performed belly dancing. Our fall wedding had a similar theme (reception included belly dancing, contact juggling, poi and even a zombie!) After much convincing (and a little booze), he agreed to cut the cake with one of my dance swords! Everyone got a kick out of it!
For the Shire? For England? For Honor? For Narnia? So many medieval causes to raise your sword for. I guess in this case it's "for us!"
