Rainbow dresses and wedding pups at this “literature in miniature” wedding

I'm also a burlesque dancer who can't image a wedding without glitter.

Sea queen meets literary nerd wedding

Sea queen meets literary nerd wedding (with the founding of a new land!)

This pair’s mash-up name totally sounded like a fake European country, so they ran with it and created a whole fanfic-style backstory and theme!
