Medieval Times Wedding

Medieval Times Wedding | Buena Park, CA | Emily + Travis

Emily and Travis have been acquientences for a few years now thanks to some of my other amazing clients. Strangely enough, they are connected to two separate couples, both of whom I found independently of each other, but they are the link between them!

Their good friends, the Moxes, originally hired me to do a Doctor Who themed engagement session and then again for their Magic the Gathering themed wedding (apparently I never blogged this one, whoops).  Their other good friends, Kristen and Jamie, originally hired me to do an unconventional engagement session where a yeti attacked them in the woods and they were saved by their dog, and then again for their Estes Park Colorado camp wedding

Still following?  Good because now we’re onto the really good stuff! Emily and Travis were actually celebrating their two year anniversary with this ceremony (they eloped at a courthouse originally) and wanted a wedding that really represented them as a couple so low and behold: a Medieval Times wedding.

You know what I love?  The unconventional.

Guess who couldn’t wait to eat chicken with her hands?  This girl.

Guess who matched with a dude on Tinder in the uber ride to the venue and then subsequently flew back to southern California two weeks later to go on a date?  This girl.

That’s another story for another day though.

Guess whose clients wanted to do a Last Supper-esque recreation and then I decided to take it up a notch and make it epic?  This girl.

In other news, I’m overjoyed to find out that I’m going to be photographing another one wedding from this friend group in 2019. These are clearly my people.

Overall it was such an amazing experience with such a great group of people – I love when people celebrate in their own way with the ones they love and this was no different, except that it didn’t have silverware. Silver lining: no clinking glasses demanding that you kiss over and over and over again.

Other things to note: our knight, the Green Knight, not only won, but betrothed his sash to Emily at the end, which was especially exciting.  Also, I’m thrilled to announce that I won a Wedding Photojournalists Association award for excellence in wedding photography with the featured header image on this post.
