Find Love and Renew your Vows at the Colorado Renaissance Festival on Holly’s Hot Wedding Tips
Fun and finery can be found on the side of the mountain in Larkspur. Saturday my family and I journeyed to
the Colorado Renaissance festival to check out their Love and marriage weekend. We donned our hobbit wedding outfits as Samwise Gamgee and Rosie Cotton from “Lord of the Rings.”
The day started with the pre-show at the castle gate. Promptly at 10 am the gates opened as the full orchestra played. We stopped and danced a jig of happiness as they played. We proceeded to check out many of the new acts. At 1 pm the royal court processed through the fair.
Besides being known for turkey legs and jousting, the Colorado Renaissance festival hosts weddings and vow renewals in their Canterbury chapel, just uphill from the Joust. This is a quaint chapel is an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the fair where lovers can exchange their vows and be wed.
We joined the other fairgoers and members of the royal court at 3:30pm for the renewal of
the vows. Maids were handing out red roses and ribbons to be used in the vow exchange. The officiant arrived in his kilt and cap and led the royal court to the front of the chapel where he invited everyone to participate in their renewal of their vows. At the end the rose was handed to the ladies and it was optional to tie the knot with the ribbon around the couple’s hands. It was a lovely experience. I recommend lovers young and old take advantage of this joyous event.
