A quirky wedding between a fire-fighter and a pharmacist proves that even a princess can cut her wedding cake with an ax! Stand back Prince Charming!
Located in historic Osawatomie, Kansas The Grand Loft set the stage for Beth and Sam’s fairy tale wedding featuring a vintage fire engine, rings in a pill box and a Cinderella castle cake cut by ax wielding firefighter Beth. Stunning floral designs by Sarah Bilihmer make the day even more magical for these two Disney fans, and behind the lens, TriArctic Photography captured every moment of the couple’s fairy tale.
The perfect palette for a Disney inspired winter wedding.
As hosts of the Star Wars and geek culture podcast Tosche Station Radio, as well as huge Disney fans, would you expect anything else but a Star Wars themed engagement photo session at the happiest place on Earth for these two.
Drawing inspiration from Pixar’s Up Txebi and Xema teamed up with the amazingly talented team at Fandi.es for their pre-wedding shoot.
Their engagement was “A Tale as Old as Time” for two animation nerds, Kelly and Sean, whose love for Disney Animation and each other developed into their own real-life Disney fairy tale.
This Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton inspired engagement shoot comes from the quirky mind of Alexz, your not-so-average bride who drew inspiration from her love of the music Meat Loaf, Tim Burton and Walt Disney. Mixing the three together, with Minnesota based photographer Amber Fischer behind the lens, made for a “bizarre, unique and fabulous combination,” says Amber. “Alexz is one-of-a-kind, which is why I immediately liked her and immediately knew I would do anything to be her event photographer.
Lets start their story from the beginning when Kelly and Sean first met at Comic-Con dining with fellow storyboard artists. Kelly, the new girl looking to break into the business, had struck up a conversation with Sean a storyboard artist for Dreamworks. “I won’t lie, I was there to network,” says Kelly. “So I politely asked if he would look at my portfolio and give me notes. He was very open to the idea and encouraged us to meet up back in LA to go over things. Overjoyed with the prospect of a mentor, we continued to chat into the night.” For these two animation nerds who grew up and studied Disney animation their pragmatic mentor-ship eventually developed into their own real-life Disney fairytale.
