High fantasy meets a handmade gown at this treehouse camp wedding

Tierra and Bradley got married at The Treehouse Camp at Maple Tree Campground, a Maryland venue with an ACTUAL HOBBIT HOLE. The guests came in fabulous garb, but nothing compares to the bride's gown that she designed her damn self. She bought the amazing corset and then crafted the leaf-adorned tulle skirt to match. Bradley channeled hobbits with this outfit and acorn boutonniere. Plus, there was a hooded cloak involved which we very much dig. Don't miss the hawk delivering the rings!

The Arkenstone of weddings: a barefoot Hobbit-themed wedding

When it comes to Lord of the Rings weddings, this barefoot Hobbit-themed wedding wins all the Arkenstones. Lanterns, elven bridesmaids, a crown headpiece, hobbit groomsmen (and groom!), and even a dwarf! Gandalf the Grey presided over the ceremony and they ate Hobbit hole cake. There's so much Tolkien goodness to see, on top of the already amazing silver dress, purple hair, and epic costumes. This pair won't be throwing their rings into Mount Doom anytime soon.

Let this Lord of the Rings ring book carry the burden of the one ring for you

We know there's only one ring to rule them all at your wedding (or I guess two, probably). The ring pillow for your fantasy wedding had better live up to the theme, right? If you're a Tolkien fan like I am, this Lord of the Rings ring pillow will bind you to your fellowship of two like nothing else. Plus, have you seen how cute it looks with a tiny hobbit ring bearer…?
