Cheer "HUZZAH" for this Bristol Renaissance Faire wedding

Gretchen and Michael's wedding was a full-on Renaissance affair. The ceremony took place over Labor Day weekend at the Cotswold Commons area of The Bristol Renaissance Faire.

After the ceremony, we put all of our 100 guests onto chartered buses and took them to Lillstreet Art Center for four different art classes and snacks for a "crafternoon!"

We snuck feathers into our boutonnieres and centerpieces, our cake toppers were a sweet pair of lovebirds, our table "numbers" were antique-framed Sibley's bird postcards and each of us referenced our shared love for birding together in our vows.
