Tori and Andrew fantasy castle wedding took place at Thornewood Castle, a 27,000 square foot manor of the Gothic Tudor style that is the only one of its kind on the west coast. Atmosphere for days, y'all. But to pile on the awesome, it was also a costume wedding with a theme based on the Dresden Files books (full of adventure and magic which fit the costume theme perfectly!).

Tori dressed as a faerie princess while Andrew was a a White Court vampire. Real swords, daggers, and weaponry adorned them and some of the guests. The ceremony could be held in the formal garden at Thornewood, a beautiful sunken garden surrounded by brick walls, and more than a half-acre in size. The ceremony was conducted by a wizard, and the wedding party was all in costume.

One of my favorite parts was that the reception featured a roving magician who entertained everyone with a variety of tricks and sleight of hand. Are you ready for this magic meets fantasy castle wedding? I know I am…

Comments on A fantasy castle wedding with costumes, magic, and a real Gothic Tudor castle

  1. Bouncy castle salesman? That would be hilarious if it wasn”t so hilarious. From now on I think “bouncy castle salesman should be recognised slang for Ponzi pimp and cryptocurrency scammer, in the same vein as “snake oil salesman. “How”s the saving for a house deposit going bro? “Not good brah. I had $5,000 but invested it all with a bouncy castle salesman.

  2. Beautiful, just beautiful. Looked like a real fun wedding too, my favourite kind 😉
    Be happy!
