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. :)
“I’ve got gadgets and gizmos a plenty…” <3
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. :)
Kim and Christopher had their reception at Ariel’s at the Yacht Club. Every table was themed to a different land. :)
Can you name that song?
They had some extra special guests drop by. :)
Then it was off for some photo time outside of the Magic Kingdom!
My favorite. And darn it, I want those shoes!!
Kim and Christopher, thank you for having us and we hope you’re still loving newlywed life!! :)
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
Second favorite. :)
Carly, thank you so much for letting us document your first trip to Walt Disney World as a family of four. Lunch after next time!!! :)
Heather and Michael are probably the most patient bride and groom in the world!
We photographed their wedding days after moving, and I’m so embarrassed to just now be sharing their wedding preview. You guys, thank you for being so patient and letting us be a part of your fun wedding day! :)
This adorable flower girl happened to be Michael’s beautiful daughter! She was in great spirits despite the fact that until that week, she thought *she* was the bride!
Continued from Jenna and Liam’s Part I!!!!
Oh, Animal Kingdom weddings, you have my heart! <3
Jenna and Liam’s ceremony location got moved around more times than I remember because of all the construction going on at the Animal Kingdom. I loved where they ended up!
Remember their Magic Band proposal? I loved how they incorporated it with their signs for each food served.
I was surprised the guests weren’t prepared for the cold temperatures- The reception was at the base of Mount Everest, for goodness sake!
Oh, just a glow stick entrance into the reception. No big deal. ;)
Too many favorites, but this is definitely one of them!
TIM HOUSE! I met Tim ~18 years ago and he’s been a close family friend ever since, so it’s an extra special wedding when his smiling face is around! :)
Love this soooo much.
Just a little father/daughter dance in front of Everest’s Fastpass+ entrance. :)
Jenna was born October 23rd and is obsessed with 10:23, so that’s precisely when they scheduled their cake cutting. <3
Her maids of honor gave one of my all-time favorite toasts, complete with direct quotes from emails from Jenna talking about when she first met Liam. I laughed so hard I was crying! :)
Jenna and Liam, thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding dream team! Talk about setting the bar high for our 2015 weddings! Patricia of LeJeune Artistry, Maxine from Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, Tyler of Beyond Videography, Tim House, and of course Nate- Let’s all do it again soon! ;)
