Clashes of steel at this choose-your-own-adventure warrior wedding complete with a quest

As James and I met in martial arts, and one of our favorite things to do is go to Renaissance festivals, we decided to put a good third of our budget to awesome custom armor sets. We special-ordered swords. I made my own scabbard. We commissioned one of my favorite artists for custom illustration made into our tapestry.

We did our own simple decorations and set up. The ONE RULE for all attendees was that they had to come in some sort of costume (yes, even the officiant). The theme? "Choose your own adventure." We were not disappointed, and had an amazing time.

Winter is coming: a Game of Thrones winter wedding in Atlanta

Jessi and Moose got married in the mountains of Georgia, on a Wednesday in December, to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Moose is a chef, so he and his friends went to farmers markets to buy all of the ingredients for the food, and then their friends in the industry cooked it for everyone that weekend. Jessi revamped her mom's wedding dress to wear and it looked AMAZING.

Best part? Their wedding was Game of Thrones-inspired, partly due to the fact that the couple and many of their friends attend renaissance faires and events regularly. Don't miss the epic capes, swords, and wintry flower crown!
