On Sunday, November 11, 2018, Wild Soul Weddings owner La Rae and Associate Brittany celebrated Justin and Angelia Meiergerd! Their wedding was unlike any other wedding we have ever done: they had a Viking wedding! I know they were under a LOT of stress trying to pull every single amazing detail together for this very special day, and I believe they created a truly delightful, unique experience for themselves and their guests!
The Meiergerds chose the Celebration Farm for their wedding, which was the PERFECT backdrop. They and their bridal party dressed in Viking clothing, and invited their guests to partake as well. We were amazed to see their guests’ outfits!
Their ceremony began at 4:44, and they had the most beautiful ceremony ever. We value all faiths, and this was the first Pagan and first Norse religious ceremony we have ever done; we hope it won’t be our last!
They had a Viking history group called Olskipan help them create this dreamy day, had circus performers at the reception, but also included many modern wedding traditions, such as the cake cutting, special dances, and bouquet and garter toss.
Take a peek at their fabulous wedding day!
