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!).

We had a Game of Thrones themed shower with an actual Iron Throne!

I could not have been more surprised when, three months after my engagement to Elliott was announced, my usually traditional mom called me and said "How would you feel about a Game of Thrones themed shower?" Elliott and I love the show and we were eagerly awaiting the next season. I was jumping up and down ecstatically when I told her "YES!"

The Redwood Wedding: All men must dine

We met at a Game of Thrones viewing party and podcast, and we really bonded over our love (read: obsession) with food. So when it came time to plan our wedding at Mike's ancestral — Redwood House — we combined the things that brought us together: Game of Thrones and food. Thus, "The Redwood Wedding: All Men Must Dine" was born. And man, was it awesome!

I'm currently (and finally!) writing my wedding profile for The Redwood Wedding. While I've been re-visiting The Blessed Day, I've been revisiting some of my details. I thought I'd highlight the wedding purchases that brought me the most joy. Maybe they'll do the same for you, or spark some inspiration for your wedding. Then I want to hear about yours!
