A DIY, Fantasy and Renaissance Wedding | Leila + Kyle

When Kyle and Leila met, they were in costume, so it was only fitting that they wed in costume. On their wedding day at a private horse farm in Montesano, Washington, they were surrounded by their surrogate family, the Seattle Knights, members of the combat and reenactment troupe that has been their shared passion for the past ten years. Guest from far and wide dressed in costumes that ranged from medieval (knights, damsels, friars, gentlemen, and ladies) to magical (the green man, faeries, cat girls, and monsters).

Every detail of this wedding was a little different, and completely DIY. Starting with a morning spent getting ready that included full costume and makeup, but with a twist — elf ear prosthetics for her, chain mail for him, and weapons and armor for both! And before they could be fully wed, the bride was kidnapped by a cadre of renegade knights and her groom was forced to fight– with live steel– for her return! (Only, of course, to have her conquer him, laughingly, in her own battle in the end.) Their cake was a castle with a moat and they dined on spit-roast pig, haunch of venison, and the finest meads and ales. To end an epic celebration, they invited guests to change their costumes for a masqued ball at the end of the evening. Everyone danced late into the night under the open stars, surrounded by torchlight, while performers spun and swallowed fire.

Leila and Kyle, congratulations! We hope your first year of marriage has been a journey filled with love and laughter and many memorable performances. Hip hip, HUZZAH!
