When I first saw Rachel's pictures in a Facebook group for Disney Brides, the first thought that came to mind is "GLAMOROUS!". I fell in love with her shoes, OH THE SHOES! and the stunning pink dress! I love the sense of family the pictures show too!
HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
We met on an online dating website. As soon as he contacted me, I couldn't get him out of my mind. That was the best indication that I wasn't supposed to! We texted all day every day. We talked on the phone a bit. We met a few days later, right around Christmas of 2008. We were inseparable from that point on.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE? We had a three day engagement. On Valentine's Day 2010 we gave me a dozen roses and asked me if I would marry him. We went to the court house downtown and got married three days later-- February 17,2010.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO GO WITH A DISNEY WEDDING? We knew we eventually wanted a wedding since the courthouse is not how we pictured it or wanted to remember our wedding day. We decided to have a big wedding in Disney because I have always had a love for Disney, and that's where we would celebrate our anniversary every year. Plus I always dreamed of that big princess fairytale wedding. So a wedding in Disney World just made sense!
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING DATE? ANY SIGNIFICANCE? We wanted it around our five year anniversary, and I have always been a HUGE fan of the movie "Father of the Bride." You know, the one where Franck's Bridal Studio is named after next to the Wedding Pavilion.. Annie and Brian's wedding was on January 6th too! So this was perfect!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE WEDDING? Other than marring the love of my life all over again, I loved the magical experience of riding in Cinderella's glass coach to and from my wedding. Having Mickey and Minnie there. And having my reception at my favorite resort-- the Grand Floridian. Just the fact I had my wedding in Disney was so magical!
I LOVE YOUR SHOES! TELL ME MORE ABOUT THEM. As soon as I laid eyes on these shoes I had to have them! They were so perfect and fell right into my Disney princess theme I wanted our wedding. They are the Christian Louboutin Cinderella slippers. They are the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen!
WHAT WERE YOUR FAVORITE DISNEY DETAILS YOU CAME UP WITH? The best Disney details I had were my Cinderella shoes and her glass coach for transportation, Mickey and Minnie, and the gray stuff inspired filling from Beauty and the Beast for our cake filler.
DOES YOUR HUSBAND LOVE DISNEY AS MUCH AS YOU DO? He has always loved Disney, but he loves it even more after my influence on him.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR GIRLS AND THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND/OR WEDDING. My daughter was my flower girl and my maid of honor was a fellow Disney bride from our Facebook group that I met.
WHAT ARE WAYS YOU INCORPORATE DISNEY INTO YOUR EVERY DAY LIFE AS A FAMILY? We decorate with Disney decorations, wear Disney stuff, and vacation in Disney world frequently.
ANY FUTURE DISNEY PLANS IN THE WORKS? We are here on vacation right now as I am filling this out! We plan to return as often as possible!
ANY WORDS OF ADVICE FOR FUTURE DISNEY BRIDES? It is the most magical experience. Disney is top notch in everything they do. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. You will have the time of your life.
