So this is love? It is when you have a romantic fantasy-inspired fairytale wedding like Ilse and JT at Bellewood Plantation!
You may remember them from their Christmas-themed engagement session from last year – and how perfect was that with their December fairytale wedding? And these newlyweds celebrated their day with literally everything I love… a ton of details, a beautiful bright and white estate house, perfect weather, a taco bar, and a freakin donut wall. (Yes… they were absolutely scrumptious!)
Bellewood Wedding with a Touch of Magic
This magical wedding day was nothing short of a dream come true. The details included so many hidden touches of magic. First, we have John’s adorable mouse ear cufflinks, and a set of bride & groom mouse ears, too!
Their grand reception entrance included a stunning horse-drawn carriage – can you believe it? If that doesn’t let you know it’s full fairytale status, I don’t know what will!
We even finished the evening with his & hers mouse ear portraits and sparkler exit! Honestly, it doesn’t get better than that.
Personal & Cultural Traditions
As Ilse grew up with her church being like a second home to her, it was super important to highlight her Catholic faith and Mexican traditions on her wedding day. Mexican cuisine, a mariachi band, and beautiful rosaries keep her love of her heritage and God close by. What a great day to be a catholic wedding photographer!
