Devotions & Dragons: a Jewish/Christian interfaith wedding
Our wedding was as eclectic as Jordan and I are ourselves! I am Christian and Jordan is Jewish so, while we only had a Rabbi at the ceremony, she made sure to highlight our interfaith relationship. The general theme of the wedding was the game that brought me and Jordan together nearly 6 years ago: Dungeons & Dragons!
This magical Middle Earth fairytale wedding will take you to another world
Our fairytale wedding included medieval and fantasy elements, with much inspiration from The Lord of the Rings. We personalized our non-religious ceremony, and included many nods to Tolkien. We even had a “House Sword” specially forged for the ceremony!

This costume wedding is full of nerds and joy
We met on the battlefield at a LARP (Live Action Role Play) event. So we knew we were going to do something strange when we got to planning our wedding. Our inspiration was a fantastical nexus of realms – where royalty, rogues, mages, merfolk, extraterrestrial beings gathered to witness the joining of our kingdoms.
