You'll wish you also had six wings after you see this Renaissance fantasy wedding

Katherine and Chris chose the perfect environment for their Renaissance fantasy wedding last October: nestled in the trees and ferns of a Florida urban wilderness.

And, oh, were you curious about their officiant? Let me introduce you to Elrick the Apothecary, a notary who happens to enjoy roaming around Ren Faires, educating people about herbalism, and officiating weddings in his spare time.
