This is a Renaissance Faire wedding for the books, you guys. Cera and Gerrick said their vows last October in a medieval-style castle in New Hampshire. Of course, Gerrick wore a sword, and Cera had a beautiful corset made by her sister. But my jaw dropped when I saw that all their guests dressed to the nines for a Renaissance Faire wedding. We've got a jester and a knight and… is it weird that my favorites are the older ladies dressed in elaborate gowns and hats? Hell, that's what I want to wear when I'm 60.

The costumes aren't the only medieval goodness happening at this wedding, though. There's an actual sword-in-the-stone cake, a baguette duel, and quite possibly my favorite DIY ever: Reese's Pieces wrapped to look like tiny ornamental corn! Pin that one for your fall wedding, yo.

  1. I was thinking the same thing about the cake/cupcake and the rest of the food!
    The stuffed dragon is pretty cute ­čÖé
    I love brides dress.

    1 agrees
  2. I'd love to know how the couple asked their friends and family to dress up for the wedding – I want to do something similar. Also, where on earth did they find those mugs at a price to use them as favors? They're the plastic bottomed ones, right?

    2 agree
  3. The older woman (I'm assuming someone's mom?) with the French hood and Tudor-inspired gown is fantastic (and she even wore the hood accruately! lies flat!).

    Awesome.

    2 agree
  4. AWESOME wedding!! If you could please let me know where the wine / champagne glasses were purchased I would appreciate it.

    Thank you much!
