Katie and Ronnie were married this month at Mystic Dunes- This venue is so special to us because we photographed our third wedding ever there!
It was crazy to see how much the place has changed and trees have matured and buildings have sprouted- Who knew so much could change in 13 years?! Even more special than the venue was our couple, Katie and Ronnie. <3
Katie is the daughter of Jamie, the sweetest man on the planet who happens to be an unofficial co-worker of ours when we photograph Disney weddings! Jamie can often be seen hanging out with celebrity wedding guests, escorting Cinderella’s coach (sometimes in the pouring rain!), but always, always with a huge smile to greet you. When Jamie mentioned his daughter was engaged, we couldn’t help but mention we’d love to be a part of it, but didn’t expect it to go further than that with all the photographers he knows! It was an absolute honor to be chosen to document this day and meet Jamie’s family and fall in love with the whole group. <3
Katie and Ronnie are extra special to me because they’re part of my extended Fantasyland family! I haven’t worked there since college, but working there is kind of like being in a sorority- I always feel a connection to those who also endure Dumbo on July 4th or stroller parking on New Year’s Eve. We’re just missing the secret handshake! We spent a few minutes swapping names to see who we knew in common and it all just added to the magic of the day. :)
I’m *so* excited to share these preview photos- Katie and Ronnie, I hope you and your families love these as much as we loved taking them!!
And thank you to our awesome vendor team!! <3

Ronnie, the pocket-square folding master!
Love this one of Jamie seeing his daughter as a bride for the first time! :)
This is Taylor, the bride’s neice! Katie was the flower girl in Taylor’s parents’ wedding and rang this bell as she walked down the aisle. Katie had secretly saved the bell and passed it on to Taylor for the ceremony. Isn’t that the sweetest?!
Let’s all make believe the bugs are pixie dust here, ok?! <3
Andrew, another favorite at Disney! We loved loved meeting their sweet families! :)
Can you name this Disney song? ;)
Katie and Ronnie, thank you for having us!! Give Disneyland our love!! <3
