Jessica and Zachary explored the property and unique elements of the Birchwood Inn including vintage décor in a modern setting.  They also discovered the surrounding area includes Banyan trees planted nearly 100 years ago.  Their true love radiates in every captured moment. Jessica tells her and Zachary's love story in her own words:

"Once upon a time there was a backwoods trapper and a fairytale princess. They met in the secretive tunnels at the happiest place on earth. The trappers sparkling smile caught the princess’s attention and she couldn’t help but smile back.
This was the start of Jessica’s real life fairytale. Jessica worked at Walt Disney World and Zack is a USDA wildlife federal employee and was contracted through the government to look after the Magic Kingdom. This was perfect fit for him because under the huntsman look, he is a handsome prince.
The princess ran off with her fairytale friends to a beautiful birthday adventure and thought of the handsome trapper the whole time she was gone. The trapper searched for the princess and knew the exact date she will be arriving back to the tunnels. He devised a plan to win her heart by presenting her with a banana caramel muffin. The princess was enchanted with this gift.  While gazing into his eyes, she took a small bite.  It was a magical moment and the trapper knew then his plan had worked. Soon after the prince asked the princess for her hand in marriage.
Jessica went a cruise to celebrate her birthday with friends.  Zachary did find her in the tunnels the day she returned, giving her the edible gift. Jessica was shocked and surprised the trapper thought about her as much as she thought about him the week she was away. She saw the true sweetness of Zachary and was immediately not only attracted to his appearance but his warm heart. From that point on the relationship grew very strong and very quick. Both knew they were the one and only for each other. Zachary purposed shortly after on a beautiful beach with candles, rose petals and champagne. Jessica felt like a real life princess.
An enchanted ball was needed to celebrate the union of the princess and trapper. The princess and her queen started to plan her extravagant ceremony to wed the one she loves. The princess wanted her ball unforgettable. She had a fairy godmother to help pick out the lovely ball gown and choose an elegant ball room and lovely church to make her dream wedding come true.
Jessica and her mother quickly got started preparing for their perfect day. They planned everything to a tee with no room for error. Jessica said yes to a dress and from there everything was falling into place, the venue, church, décor. Zachary and Jessica felt very blessed to have family who supports their dream. The queen double and triple checked with all vendors to make this night truly a fairytale for her princess. From lovely flowers and a room filled with candles, their wedding was nothing short of a romantic ball.  Their fairytale dream quickly became a reality and they lived happily ever after.
Now Jessica and Zachary are expecting their very own prince or princess to celebrate their fairytale and love along with their first wedding anniversary!
Getting another opportunity to live this fairytale all over again by dressing up like a beautiful princess and handsome prince just put the cherry on top the cake. Zachary and Jessica felt honored and blessed to have another fairytale moment. Limelight made them relive their special day and treated them like a real prince and princess.
                                    Thank you so much, Zachary and Jessica Bowling."
