It takes a village to make a budget wedding and this couple had good friends to help. Handfasting, broom jumping, a last-minute Home Depot tie, and a little Doctor Who geekery make for a damn good time. Don't forget to check out the bridesmaid's different bouquets too! Just another awesome notch on the Halloween week checklist.

Being outdoorsy, pagan beliefs, love of all things Medieval… you know what this means. A Medieval handfasting with lots of mead, lots of maypole dancing, and major costume cred. Plus, a white horse somehow made its way to the wedding! It's like magic.
A little rain and a football game couldn't keep this couple down. The whole wedding party was decked in gorgeous renaissance garb for a sweet as sugar "crown exchange" of vows!
