When I showed up at the Botanical Gardens on October 18th, I can honestly say I didn’t expect Travis to be dressed like a king. But man-oh-man, was I happy! He looked amazing in his stag crow, tunic, and super sharp looking sword. His groomsmen also fit the part and I knew this wouldn’t be like any other wedding. Kristy looked outstanding! She has green undertones in her dress with leaves throughout. Their love of all things trees and nature is what first brought them to the Botanical Gardens, and to meeting each other. And I can tell you, they are perfect for each other! I was also lucky enough to see Wendy Mitchell Photography there, so I knew that everything would be captured, which is good because there was a lot! When it was time to begin, Travis walked out to the Game of Thrones theme song. I mean, of course he did. Then Kristy came out with music from The Lord of the Rings. At this point, they are my favorite people. They went through their ceremony looking at each other like no one else in the world mattered. They choose to have a handfasting ceremony, and they were slightly shaking as I tied their hands together. Of course there were tree charms on the ribbons I tied their hands with. They are nothing if not consistent. Soon they kissed and became Mr. & Mrs., or perhaps King and Queen. The only thing that could top this moment was their Hobbit house cake with Gandolf watching over. This whole wedding pulled on my nerd strings so hard. I’m only sad that I left before the first dance…which I found out was actually a sword fight. Best. Day. Ever. Congratulations Travis and Kristy! May your uniqueness keep you happy and fascinated for a lifetime. And make sure to give me a call when GOT book 6 comes out. We have lots to talk about!
