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. Katherine's epic fairy wings (SIX wings — I've never seen anything like them) turn the mystic atmosphere up to 11. Chris' kilt and custom leather shoes add a Celtic flair. The programs are scrolls. 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.

Stomp your boots and holler for an Irish/Yankee/Texan wedding

Having been in the music business for more than 20 years, Chris and Carrie decided to play beautiful music together forever. They got married in a fantastic Irish/Yankee/Texas mashup of a wedding in Austin. The ceremony included a loving cup and a handfasting, both Irish traditions, and Chris wore a kilt. Carrie even had her dress designed to match her groom's kilt, with a wickedly unexpected peep of black trim.

Their Celtic, blue-moon wedding marked the 24th anniversary for these two brides

Dee and Deb had already been together for 24 years when they married each other in upstate New York on a literal blue moon. Time flies — this August will mark another two years since their wedding! The couple kept things very simple, purchasing rings, clothing, and a few items for the ceremony online. The ceremony itself looks fascinating, with rituals that involved sharing drinks from a chalice, a handfasting, and jumping the broom. Dee and Deb shared an intricate cake, showcasing phases of the moon, and a toast to cap the intimate occasion.

Monica & Clint's literary garden wedding

This pair had a big surprise just two weeks after getting engaged: the groom was being deployed. And so started the long-distance planning (Florida to Ohio) with a deployed groom to boot! But you'd never know it from the looks of this garden wedding with gorgeous views, literary details, and a superhero ring bearer.

Neil & Amanda's Renaissance fire and glitter handfasting

These nerdy lovers were seasoned Ren faire folk, so throwing a weekend-long Renaissance celebration complete with a bonfire, live music, hog roast, and fire spinners was a no-brainer. Add in some epic, last-minute garb creation, jewel-toned lanterns, and rings delivered VIA HAWK, and you'll be loving the historical life. And don't miss their awesomely hilarious glitter-bombed portraits.

This wedding is all about rain boots, fabric bouquets, and co-written vows pledging eternal love for cats

Holly and Jen rock at crafting: they handmade both of their bouquets and all of the desserts served at their wedding, including the three-tired wedding cake! Yellow and gray clearly ruled the day, as evidenced by the rain boots worn by the brides, the ribbons used for their handfasting, and the crows and bird cages printed on the dessert cookies. The pair bridged sentiment and humor with their co-written vows, including promises to accept each cat brought into their lives and staying together long enough to see what one another's tattoos look like in old age.

Meghan & Kristian's local-loving paper flowers wedding

Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!
