Heather and Michael met over 12 years ago at work. They lost touch, and nearly a decade later, he saw her profile on Match.com and they’ve been together ever since!

Their ceremony was at the Boardwalk Inn’s Sea Breeze Point, and reception was a first-ever for us at Italy Isola. :) We also photographed this wedding just a few short days after moving into our new home. It was the perfect break from cardboard boxes and boxes and boxes!

Any wedding that starts with sparkly Kate Spade shoes is a win in my book. :)

Even more a win when Patricia LeJeune is on hand for hair and make-up. :)

Michael’s daughter stole the show as flower girl. Look at that dressssssss! She was in great spirits despite the fact that until that week, she thought *she* was the bride!

It’s been an embarrassingly long time since their wedding (like, a year!) and I’ve still neglected to blog these two! Unacceptable. Friends, meet Sheelagh and Shayne, quite possibly the sweetest couple we’ve ever met. When we arrived on their wedding day, they had gifts for us from Canada, and even brought the coolest jacket for Huck! We were living in Nashville and he got some great use out of it!

From their first inquiry, Shayne told us, “We laugh louder, smile more, and love life during our trips to Walt Disney World, and we want to share that experience with our friends and families.” I love that so much and love these two more than I can say. :)

This is Claire, the coolest kid I’ve ever met. We had full on conversations over which Disney princess is best, and her concerns with kids watching all these animated movies where the parents die (Frozen had recently come out.) My favorite Claire story was one Sheelagh told us- She and Shayne took her to meet Belle, whom she had also met the night prior. Claire took one look at Belle and asked if she got enough sleep, because she looked so tired compared to their last meeting. That poor face character, but what a story! ;)

Kim contacted us, in her words, when she and Christopher had “been engaged for 100 years and finally settled on a hopeful date.” :)

These guys were married at Walt Disney World on Halloween, and were our first ever Halloween couple! We didn’t know what to expect on the Halloween wedding spectrum, from all their guests dressing up and some sort of themed bridal party or goth look for the bride and groom to a totally “normal” wedding that just happened to fall on Halloween. Theirs happened to fall in the latter category, and aside from their DJ slipping in a few Halloween songs, you’d never even know it was October 31st on their wedding day. In fact, going back through their wedding photos, I had to remind myself that their wedding was around Halloween, and not the middle of April with their amazingly bright and happy color palette!

My favorite story from meeting Kim and Christopher was when Kim told us the moment she knew she and Christopher would be together forever: He had a bar of Mickey soap from the Disney hotels in the 90’s on his computer desk… And she keeps one on hers! Hearing that reminded me of when Nate and I had been dating for a few months when I glanced at him typing in his PIN number- It was the SAME AS MINE! Sometimes you just know right off the bat they’re “the one,” sometimes you just know and then the universe hits you over the head with it a few times to make sure you reeeeeeeeeally know. ;)

I looooooove rehearsal dinner dessert parties! So fun to meet everyone ahead of time, and I love seeing our couples all nervous and excited about the next day.

I know I tweeted this around their wedding, but I cannot look at these photos without the theme song to “World of Color” being stuck in my head and it makes me soooooo happy. Also, paper flowers are my new favorite. I love the thought of having them to keep forever. :)

Kim has connected with other Disney runners on Facebook, so when she posted in a group that she was getting married, these guys came to the Yacht Club Gazebo to cheer her on! So fun. :)

I refuse to believe it’s been six years since Carly and Kyle’s wedding day!

It’s always fun catching up with past couples and watching their families grow, but this time felt so different! I’ve been following Carly’s blog religiously since she became a mother. I read every word of her in-depth post about Eva’s incredible (and slightly terrifying) birth story, already knew the origins of her children’s names, cried reading about Eva’s first ER trip after an allergic reaction to peanuts, and swoon with every tea party and zoo trip Carly takes with her kiddos. Because I follow along with this family’s daily life, I didn’t feel like I was meeting her kids for the first time, instead, I felt like I was meeting two little celebrities!

You can read Ever Clever Mom (Carly’s blog) here if you’re remotely interested in cute kids but most especially if you’re also raising a kid with severe food allergies. You can find a link to her other blogs here, which of course includes Magical Day Weddings, a blog about Disney weddings!

We met Carly, Kyle, Eva, and Calvin at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and it was our first time shooting here. :)

Oh, how I wanted to take Eva home with me!!!! We knew the shoot was a success when at the end of our session, Eva asked if we wanted to live in their hotel room with them. <3
