Excited to share this winter wedding from Bella Rose Plantation this past month! I want to give a special shout out to Entwined Events and their incredible staff. I have shot at all three of their venues, and I continue to be blown away by how hard working and kind everyone is. Especially on this particular day – it was 34 degrees and raining on and off – it was so cool to see every band together to make Andrew and Diana’s day special despite the unfortunate weather.
I also love capturing winter weddings! I loved the hues that Diana chose, all of the decor was spot on! And To take it even a step further, Andrew is a Marine, so the military theme made this wedding extra special.
I hope you sit back, relax, and enjoy these images! <3
Despite not being able to get married under the rotunda due to the weather, we were still able to get this GEM! <3
I loved this tossing garter – so clever.
Another special thing that Diana did was including both her mother, and her soon-to-be mother in law in her getting ready process. I love that we got to capture these special moments with both of them!

Guys, I’m a sucker for a first look with your dad. No matter how un-emotional your dad may be, these moments are ALWAYS special.
Oh my goodness – so Andrew just finished basic training, and apparently, he had these photos in his boots the whole time… like, STOP. I’m tearing up.
Now that is what I call sock swag!
I can’t handle the adorable-ness of this “no-peek” between Andrew and Diana pre-ceremony! Such a great opportunity for the couple to get to hear each other’s voice and calm their nerves before everything starts.
Diana always dreamed of getting married outside, and the amazing staff at Bella Rose made that happen, holding their first-ever balcony ceremony!
Cute bundled blankets for the guests to stay warm!
His reaction <3
A unique Marine tradition is the sword ceremony immediately following the first kiss. It is tradition for the bride and groom to walk through the sword tunnel, and for the one of the Marine’s to tap the bride’s butt to “welcome her to the family”!
This cake <3 <3
The bride and groom sent their guests home with a doughnut for a favor – my kind of people.
Hot cider bar!!
So many gorgeous details!!
What a magical exit!
And they’re off, starting their journey as man and wife. Congratulations Andrew & Diana!
