I don’t know if I’ve told you this before, but I have the most horrid fake British accent. I like using it because it’s the quickest way to make Nate laugh, but the truth is… I sound like an awful, awful slightly-southern version of Dick Van Dyke’s Bert in Mary Poppins. I actually used to *think* I had it pretty well set, but judging by the reactions of my closest friends and family, I seem to be ‘accent deaf’ like people are tone deaf!
That being said, I love a good British accent, so any time we get a booking from a couple across the pond, I get so excited to spend the day listening to their friends and family speak! Alex and Steve were no exception, and this wedding day was full of “lorries” and “lifts” and “spoonfuls of sugar.” Ok, I may have added that last one in for fun, but you get the picture. :)
Alex and Steve got ready at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, where they had a kick-ass view of the savannah.
Patricia LeJeune’s team was on hand, so we knew the day would begin smoothly. :)
Alex’s bridesmaids reminded me so much of Katie and Hayley, the bridesmaids at Victoria and Jack’s wedding. SO sweet and supportive- I’m officially taking applications for British best friends, if anyone’s interested! ;)
Alex made her bouquet from a vintage lampshade!
You know I have a special place in my heart for our teary grooms. <3
I promise we were happy to be there. ;)
Part two coming up next with some especially dapper guests. ;)
