Belle and Alec are married!!!! You may remember these two from their Purdue University engagement session earlier this year. (You can view that HERE.) Belle and Alec have been dating for over 4 years. They first met at Triangle Fraternity while they were both attending college. They hit it off and the rest is history! While Belle and Alec were on vacation at Walt Disney World, they got engaged! AND they got engaged on September 1, 2016 so their wedding was on their two year engagement anniversary! How amazing is that!
If you haven't guessed yet from their proposal and the fact that Belle is literally a princess name, these two love Disney. They wanted to pay homage to Disney with their wedding and had a subtle Disney theme. The focused on Beauty and the Beast and had lots of red roses throughout their wedding and used stacked books as centerpieces. There were also other nods to Disney such as their wedding cake had hidden Mickey's! They also tied in their love of Purdue University and Ohio State with their custom garter and the groom's cake. There were also some special sentimental elements in their wedding as well. Belle wore her mother's veil and the flower girl's bows were also made from the veil. They really made their wedding gorgeous and their own!
Belle and Alec's ceremony took place at Trinity United Methodist Church in downtown Lafayette, Indiana. It's a gorgeous church and was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. They incorporated in a lock ceremony and locked a lock on a tree with their parents and grandparents.
Their reception was at the gorgeous and historical Thomas Duncan Hall in downtown Lafayette, Indiana which is just a block away from Trinity United Methodist Church. It fit into their Beauty and the Beast theme perfectly and features some gorgeous windows and pretty natural light!
Enough of my ramblings, enjoy some of my favorite images from their wedding below!
Belle & Alec: You both make the perfect couple! Your wedding was just gorgeous and I know you will have a long and happy life together!
