Utah Renaissance Faire

Saturday Husband and I went to the local Renaissance Faire. Last year we dressed as "dirty peasants," meaning we cut some holes in a couple of burlap sacks and off we went. This year we upgraded to middle-class peasants. :D

Funny thing, we went to the church at the Faire and, lo and behold, a big picture of us from the year before was framed and posted right outside the gate! I thought that was so cool.

Last year we did the hand fasting ceremony. A year and a day later, if your love is still strong (and if the knot of the ribbon they tie is still intact) you can get married. So this year we got "married." (Mind that we were already hitched at the time of the hand fasting! Though I found out the two people who run the mobile church are actually ordained ministers.)

Only sunburned a little, so that's a plus!


  1. Awesome! I've always wanted to go to a Renaissance Fair!

  2. That's so cool! I have such cool friends. Nice to be "officially" married now, yes? ;)

  3. Gotta love a good renaissance fair!

    I also love this blog so I'm giving you a "Kreativ Blogger Award"! Check it out:

  4. Wait a minute...that can't be your husband...That looks like a short Rand al'Thor!

  6. Uhmm, that picture is incredibly awesome. Why are you guys so incredibly awesome?

  7. Hi, stumbled upon your blog when I googled the faire. Since you've been there, can you tell me if people bring their dogs? I can't find any info on if dogs are allowed on the festival's website. I have 2 greyhounds & have always wanted to take them to a renaissance faire.

    Thanks! And cute photo of your photo... :)

    1. Yep! There were tons of dogs when I went, everything from Irish setters to pomeranians. :)

      And thanks!
