Mawwiage in tights: a Princess Bride meets Robin Hood: Men in Tights wedding

Mawwiage in tights: a Princess Bride meets Robin Hood: Men in Tights wedding

There’s one definite way to get me excited about a wedding: tell me it’s a Princess Bride meets Robin Hood: Men in Tights theme. I am not worthy. Kaitlyn and Blaise love all things cosplay and Renaissance so it made perfect sense. We’re talking groomsmen in tights, two themed dresses and a crown for the bride (one that she made!), elf ears for everyone, and costumes galore including Gandalf, Dr. Strange, and Sonny and Sher-wood.

A most “strange and unusual” Beetlejuice wedding (officiated by Miss Argentina!)

There was an on-trend bouquet for the groom (on a budget, too– only $30 for all the flowers!), an envy-inducing TARDIS dress, and even a sneaky reference to the Doctor’s wife — hello sweetie!

How Padme and Anakin rocked their engagement photos

This couple rocked a stellar Star Wars cosplay shoot with Padme and Anakin in a Tatooine-like landscape. It was taken by JM Photography who were compelled to keep it under wraps until their Baywood Golf & Country Club wedding in Arcata, California. Geeky surprises are the best kind!
