sherwood forest

 A Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood themed wedding will always be fun, but I love the idea of cutting out the greens and putting Maid Marian’s twist on things!

A Game of Thrones wedding is a fabulous idea if you’re a fan of the HBO series or the books by George R.R. Martin. But here’s the trick: you don’t have to take your source of inspiration literally! That’s just what inspiration is, it ignites a creative spark and you go from there. For this […]

les miserables

So normally when you’re picturing your dream wedding, Les Miserables isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Bear with me though!
