Hobbits, Men and Elves!

Look at these wonderful photos of a Middle-earth Wedding presided over by Gandalf the Grey, as the forces of light and dark are brought together in holy matrimony!

“The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it. White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.” ~ Gandalf

This Middle-earth wedding of Erin and Shelby has serious magic, both light and dark as friends gather to celebrate the union of these two Tolkien Fans!

The folks at Offbeat Bride have posted this collection of photos by CJ Hopper Photography. Ariel, Seattle-based author of a book called Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides, created this blog as an ongoing celebration of couples who dare to walk off the beaten aisle.

The only thing missing are a few Orcs to liven up the festivities. Take a look at this beautiful location for a middle-earth wedding.

Middle-earth came to the Wuksachi Lodge in Sequoia National Park in Central California big time. Erin and Shelby (along with their perfectly costumed guests — seriously!) came as elves, hobbits, and the race of men with cloaks and gowns and it was spectacular. Gandalf himself officiated the ceremony among the sequoias.
The Lord of the Rings-inspired decor at the reception of this Middle-earth wedding had scenes from Lord of the Rings, themed candle wraps, Mount Doom(!), and elements of the wilderness. The wedding cake was a three-tier hobbit hole that they cut into with their swords. A lantern lit exit heralded the end of what was surely a killer celebration I’d have died to attend. At least we can see the whole Tolkienesque party right here. Don’t miss the first dance in the mists…

Go HERE to see more of these wonderful photos!
