Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Bellagala (Saint Paul, MN) is brimming with thoughtful details and hearfelt moments! Here’s Bellagala to tell us more:

Jennifer met Oz, a Major in the US Army, on match.com while he was stationed in Fort Leavenworth. The two soon fell in love and he proposed at his going away party before he was deployed again. They got married once he returned.

See more after the cut!


Their beautiful, sunset wedding was held at Arterra Event Gallery in Lawrence, MO. They loved the simplicity and uniqueness of the space. They wanted their big day to be a celebration of the blending of their families.

The couple now has 4 daughters and 1 son, all of them involved in the ceremony. During the ceremony, each member of the family put a padlock with their name on the cutout of a tree. This family tree, and memory, is something this family will cherish forever.

Congratulations, Jennifer & Oz and thank you, Bellagala for sharing! For more information about Bellagala, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.
