This Princess Bride wedding captured every detail of the novel

You may remember Jada and Katharine from their incredible “The Princess Bride” inspired engagement shoot. With a couple who loves the novel so much, it’s no surprise that their wedding would also be modeled after the story. From characters to scenery, every last detail was thought out and executed. It was the perfect ceremony for a wedding 24 years in the making.




From the couple: The “Princess Bride”-theme wedding was based on William Goldman’s 1973 fantasy novel and held in a lovely rustic location in Chapel Hill, NC. Along with our two Buttercup Brides, attendees of the wedding included Westley, Inigo Montoya, the Impressive Clergyman, Prince Humperdinck, Fezzik, the Grandson and Grandfather, The Albino, Miracle Max, Queens, Pirates, The Brute Squad, ROUS’s, Shrieking eels, and more, who all had some Inconceivable Cake and danced the day away!
