Ladies of the Lake: Nimue marries Morgan Le Fay in this Arthurian wedding shoot

We've definitely seen grooms with swords cutting cakes at weddings (note: do NOT put the sword back in the scabbard with cake on it. You'll thank yourself later). But we hadn't noticed quite as many women with swords (though we have seen a couple!).

The team who crafted this inspiration shoot drew upon the myth of the Lady of the Lake from Arthurian legend, but with a twist: the Lady marries Morgan Le Fay!

Soft, moody, & romantic: gray wedding dresses are our JAM

We've been seeing gray wedding dresses trickle in for quite a while now so we know it's on the horizon as ultra perfect for upcoming fall and winter weddings. You can layer gray under white tulle, embroider it with beads, add black for a dark and moody touch… it's just one of our favorite colors du jour.

Chime in with your favorite, or even better, if YOU'LL be rocking' a gray dress yourself!

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.

A Medieval camping festival wedding (aka Game of Thrones meets Burning Man meets Asian customs!)

We wanted an outdoorsy, Game of Thrones meets Burning Man meets Asian customs wedding. It opened with a "Red Army" parade: a parade of our closest friends with banners, drums, bubbles, and flowers! The groom, Nick, also read family vows to my daughter. We had 300 pounds of meat (because we both love food), belly dancers, live music, fire performers, and a bounce house!
