A Midsummer Night's Dream

Five years ago today, on a Midsummer's Night, I married the man of my destiny.

And the day was like a dream.


With a horse drawn carriage.....
....and a fairy as a flower girl.

 My father walked me through ribbon covered trees.

The ceremony was magical.
                                                      Among the guests were.......


fairies and monks.....

......Scotsmen.....

....and pirates.

 My dress was handmade (not by me) and dyed with tea leaves. It cost less than $300. My mother made my bouquet with flowers from her garden, as was tradition in Renaissance time.

Our "cake" was also of the tradition of the Renaissance age. Guests were asked to bring a homemade dessert. This was seen as the melding of the families.

There was a feasting hall...
....and thrones at the head table.
