"Wedding Crashers" meets "Castle Crashers"
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!
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!"
