Fairy Western WedFest

So, picture this: Erin and Chris, two lovebirds, decided to throw the ultimate WedFest in the mystical Elm Pass Woods. Their shindig wasn’t your average wedding—it was a full-blown Fairy Western Bash that had everyone talking.

From the get-go, the vibe was all about the unconventional. They opted for some cool tintype photography taken by one of Chris’ brothers, capturing their love in a way that felt like stepping back in time. His other brother joined him to serenade guests pre-ceremony. Chris rocked a bolo tie, traditional Irish shillelagh, and hat adorned with a feather…a gift from the bride in the form of a pocket watch completed the vibe. Erin strutted her stuff in hand-embroidered Rothy’s bridal shoes and a handmade cape gifted by her aunt that were practically works of art.

The ceremony? Oh, it was pure magic. An Irish handfasting sealed the deal, and the whole crew was serenaded by a kickass bluegrass band, Steel Betty, live at the reception. Guests showed up in wild outfits, thanks to the couple’s call for a unique wedding guest dress code, and the place was decked out with DIY decor that screamed personality. They brought in their personal record player and collection and each record had a sticky note of why it was special to the couple. Guests loved it! They are also big Lord of the Rings fans, and Chris baked their actual wedding cake as a replica of Bilbo Baggins’ birthday cake from the movies.

Let’s not forget the pint glass wedding favors, a toast to shared joy that had everyone raising a pint of Guinness. And as the night came to a close, they bid farewell with a mesmerizing sparkler exit, painting the night sky with a kaleidoscope of light.

Erin and Chris didn’t just tie the knot; they lassoed their love in the heart of Elm Pass Woods, leaving everyone in awe of their one-of-a-kind wedded bliss.
