Bella Collina Fairytale Wedding
Lisa + Christian
An online video game brought these two to the actual end game, their Bella Collina Fairytale Wedding. Christian and Lisa met online during a LotR (Lord of the Rings) online video game session and built a friendship while being countries away. After finally meeting in person, they knew they belonged together forever. Their wedding fell nothing short of a romantic fairytale. From how Christian looked at his bride, to their romantic photoshoot captured through the lens of Crickets Photography. We can’t wait to share it with you!
The Fairytale Princess
The day began with the bride getting ready with the princess treatment. Lejune Artistry styled Lisa’s hair down in loose curls and gave her a natural face with red lips. Lisa’s dress designed by Martina Llana was sheer, laced, and embedded with small embellishments, just like a true princess dress. It also had a long, elegant train to follow. Of course, she did not forget princess-like accessories! She slipped on fun and whimsical Betsy Johnson slippers and Vera Wang designer jewelry.
The First Look
Holding her bridal bouquet, designed by Blossoms Arrangements of Distinction, the bride walked to her groom who was waiting around a corner. Christian looked at his bride how every prince should look at his princess. He was stunned by her beauty, leaving him speechless. It was truly a lovely moment.
The Wedding Knot
Next, we walked into the ceremony room where there were elegant white chairs with florals and a beautifully dressed chandelier hung from above. It was time for the procession to begin, Lisa arm in arm with her father walked down the aisle to her groom. The couple said their vows and tied the knot.
Picture Perfect Fairytale Couple
After being pronounced as Husband and Wife, the fairytale newlyweds then went for a romantic walk around Bella Collina taking stunning portraits together. This couple sure knew how to fire up the romance. From the outside grassy landscapes to the dock over the water, and our favorite, the wine barrels. Not only did this couple let off the heat, but their bridal party was looking sharp too!
Bella Collina Reception
As we went into the reception area, beautiful bare oak tables filled the room. The Tables had floral garlands, with different-sized clear glass floating candles, and small gold candle holders for centerpieces. For each guest, laid gold chargers placed with a red napkin with a name tag and a piece of greenery, finished with silverware and water goblets.
LotR Hidden Secrets
After the ceremony and pictures, it was time to dance. The sparklers sparkled in the air as the newlyweds had their first dance. They enjoyed the company of their guests and their speeches. But most of all the beautiful cake by Fig and Flour! It was a light-marbled cake that was cut with a sword! These gamers of course had to add a hint of the game that brought them together, Lord of the Rings, which you will find subtle hints throughout their fairytale wedding.
Romantic Fairytale Farewell
The couple ended their evening by having a few more private pictures in the dark and captured a neat picture of a lightsaber faceoff. These newlyweds then ended their night with a sparkling farewell. It was my pleasure to be a part of your big day with such a great team of vendors. Congratulations to such an awesome couple, from fun to romantic Lisa and Christian were amazing in this Bella Collina Fairytale Wedding.
