From Hogwarts to NYC: a Brooklyn Harry Potter wedding

Sort yourself into your new Harry Potter house with this sorting hat ceremony

Sera and John’s Brooklyn meets Hogwarts wedding had soooo much to love: pink hair, chocolate frogs, Honeydukes lollipops, Bertie Botts every flavor beans, A Daily Prophet program, wands for all guests, handmade potion bottle vases, a bouquet made out of Harry Potter books and charms, golden snitch cake pops, and more. It was a wild ride.

But our favorite part was their unity ceremony. You have to see it…

A gorgeous wedding with influences of military travels

A fantasy-inspired wedding with influences of military travels

Brenna and Alexander had a gorgeous fantasy and Game of Thrones-inspired wedding with extra inspiration from their military travels, especially to China. The New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden was the background for their ceremony where Alexander recited a poem he’d wrote especially for Brenna.

You could see the influence of things they love: traveling adventures, Game of Thrones, the color purple, and their two dogs/ring bearers (in bow ties!).

Cheer “HUZZAH” for this Bristol Renaissance Faire wedding

Gretchen and Michael’s wedding was a full-on Renaissance affair. The ceremony took place over Labor Day weekend at the Cotswold Commons area of The Bristol Renaissance Faire. The officiant dressed as a monk, bridesmaids wore DIY faery wings and flower crowns, and all the groomsmen wore color-coordinated capes. The couple incorporated a Medieval wine ceremony into their wedding as a symbol of their lives uniting as one. If you’re a Ren Faire lover like I am, you’re in for a treat…

After nearly a decade together, Judy and Phil tied the knot at their alma mater of St. Mary’s College of Maryland. The two originally couldn’t decide on a theme, but man did they pick a good one in the end. They love a ton of fantasy/science fiction franchises, so it only made sense to call upon the powers of The One Ring, The Force, and The Ministry of Magic to get the job done. Just wait until you see their fandom-themed centerpieces and references to pop culture touchstones everywhere. Oh, and when elf ears are involved, I’m so in. Let’s see all the magic unfold…

A wedding of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones-inspired wedding

A wedding of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones-inspired wedding

Our wedding was inspired by Game of Thrones. In addition to simply loving the world of A Song of Ice And Fire, Game of Thrones played a major part in our relationship. Our relationship started veering into "dating" territory when we started to play A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. It all spiraled from there. Here’s how we planned our wedding of Ice and Fire…

A Renaissance fantasy Christmas wedding (aka "A Lord of the Rings Christmas Special!")

A Renaissance fantasy Christmas wedding (aka “A Lord of the Rings Christmas Special!”)

When people asked about our wedding, we joked that the theme was, "Lord of the Rings Christmas Special." Shane is a huge Tolkein nerd, and we both love Renaissance faires and fantasy. Our wedding was in December, his favorite color is red, and mine is green, so throwing Christmas in just made sense. It came together beautifully.
