Chef Mickey's and Rockin' Rollercoaster

We had a reservation at 7:30 the day of the wedding for breakfast at Chef Mickeys. We made it there on time and got seated right away. We ended up with a really good table that had a really good view of Bay Lake.. we had a party of 6.. so I was surprised we got the table. I was also surprised at how much I ate.. but the food was soo good! I went straight for the Mickey Waffles! They were soo good! They had the best selection of food of any breakfast buffet I have been to in Disney!
The characters all came around and made all kinds of gestures when they noticed my shirt! It was soo adorable! But.. pluto was kind of being a jerk that day...but Mickey made up for it. I made sure he remembered to be at our reception. lol...

(note there is no picture with pluto!!)

After breakfast my sister left us to go nap before the wedding.. and my bridesmaid, my bridesman, and his two friends all headed over for a quick trip to Hollywood Studios to ride the rockin rollercoaster! I had my heart set on it! We only had about two hours to get there and get back to the room, so we had to hurry!

Here's the date from the bus...

I was so excited to finally see 8-7-08!! (I got that idea from Liz!)

When we made it to DHS we went straight to RRC.. it was about 9:30 and the wait was already 60 minutes! I almost cried! There was no way we were going to be able to wait in that line.. and be back at our room in time to get ready! I was soo upset!
Then, one of the girls who were with us decided to go try and tell our "pathetic" story to try and sneak through the fastpass line.. it didn't work. The CM working the line didn't even say congratulations, all he said was sorry.. theres nothing I can do! Yea Right!! It's Disney.. nothing is impossible! I think I told him that!
So.. I almost cried again as we started to walk out, when my adorable "bridesman" decided to go into the store. He went to the back entrance of the line (where the photo center is) and begged the girl to let us on. She thought he was lying.. but they pulled me around the corner, and the next thing I knew they were taking around! We were sooo excited! They took us down a back hall and opened a door that led right to the front of the line! We didn't wait at all! It was sooo perfect Disney magic!!! And the most fun I have ever had on that ride!!

Thats me, my BM, and "Bridesman"- I don't think he liked that title to much!

After RRC.. we headed back to the GF to check out... and move all my stuff over to the Contemporary. It was soo hot that day!
When we finished there, we headed back around to my Mom's room at the GF and waited for Ana to get there to start getting ready!

I have been reading and loving your report. Your pictures came out great. We just booked the MK shoot and requested Ty - it is scheduled for 5:00am and sunrise is not until 6:45 so we will probably get all night time shots.

Love the tshirts you made and love the first one you said you got as a gift. Any idea where they got it - I would love that one.

Your dress was just beautiful and I love the color combo for your girls and your sister did an amazing job on your flowers.

In your pictures I noticed your programs and they came out great. I was thinking of making the Mickey head ones but I don't think will have enough time and I was wondering where you got those. I also love the quotes - and might incorporate this idea into my wedding. Instead of individual ones like you did - and I love the way you put them on the bells - I might just put one on each of our table number cards.

Looking forward to reading more.

Linda
Wow.. thanks! We didn't request Ty, but we ended up with him.. he was really nice, and wanted to try new things.
I have no idea where my friend got that shirt.. I'll ask her next time I see her.. but then again, I don't know when that will be! I'll try for you!
Thanks for all the compliments, The programs came from A.C. Moore, and we ended up getting them at half off.. so it was $5 for 50 programs! They sell them at any craft store.. just tri-fold programs.. then I used Rhinestones that already had adhesive on them for the Mickeys.. made my job much easier!
The quotes were a last minutes choice.. I just didn't want to assign everyone a seat, so I added the quotes to the bells! I still have the ones I used, so let me know if you need them and I'll PM them to you! Thanks!

I'm loving the trip review!! That's awesome that they pushed you ahead of line although the first guy wasn't very nice!!

Love the earrings too very good taste !
Thanks! He knows if its in that blue box that i'll love it!!

OMG Carly....Your face opening the gift is priceless!!! So cute.

You have me excited for Chef Mickeys now.
haha.. yea after four hours of sleep! he wrote something nice in my card too.. usually he tries to be "funny" so I almost cried when he actually wrote me something sweet!

Aww that was awesome that they let you go on the Rockin Rollercoaster! That is a fun way to start off the wedding. Your Chef Mickey pics are so cute. I am partial to the Donald one! :goodvibes
Thanks! my sisters baby nursery is all Donald Duck.. it's soo cute!
RRC was soo great! Even though I have rode it 100 hundred times.. I'll always remember that one!
I'm soo glad that everything went well. It's nice being able to take my mind off the fact that i have no home now. Please keep posting, i love reading how everything went and seeing there is a light at the end of the tunnel. :)
I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you are okay, and taken care of!
Thanks for all the compliments on my wedding!

Carly,
Your one bridesmaid is beginning to sound like a pain in the (bleep). I sure hope that imrpoved as the day wore on. I LOVE :love: those earings! Your honey has good taste. Your pictures are adorable from the morning of the wedding. I was so freaking sick the night before and the morning of my wedding from food poisoning that I didn't even want to get out of bed :sick: , so I'm quite sure my pictures wouldn't have looked as perky as yours. Your looked radient...like you were glowing. I can't wait to see the rest!

no girl.. I PM'd you the download almost a month ago! Did you forget already?
It was just the ceremony....

no girl.. I PM'd you the download almost a month ago! Did you forget already?
It was just the ceremony....

You are so cute! Did you get my PM back? I couldn't get it to download. I started it that night and it went all night and still said it had the same 5 hours to go when I checked it in the morning. Then, I thought maybe the computer had gone into "hibernate" mode and stopped the download, so I tried it at work on a T1 line, thinking that would be faster. Again, let it go all day and it never finished. :sad1:
After seeing your post last night, I was hoping maybe it was now available elsewhere or that they'd fixed the link, so I checked again today, told it to download at 5:50 am and it still hadn't accomplished anything by the time I left the house at 8:40. So sad! I know I would have been crying watching it. I always love when I get to hear DIS brides say their vows. Once I've heard someone's voice, then I feel like I know them a bit better. :hug:

Sorry! Didn't mean to pirate: your PJ/TR! :goodvibes
Anyway, sorry for the long explanation.

I don't mind you hijacking! Sorry about the video.. my sister and a few others couldn't get it either.. it took me three computers to make it.. somehow my moms did it in 8 minutes.. I have no idea whats going on with it!
I emailed the girl at Disney letter her know that my downloads weren't downloading.. so I don't know, maybe they can fix it? I'll try and figure something out for you.. I'm just not the most technical...but I'm working on it!:hug:

Did anyone else have parents who met for the first time at their rehearsal dinner? Our parents havent met yet, and they couldn't be more opposite!

How did it go??

Hey, I wish I would have seen this post earlier.. lol!

My parents and his parents haven't met yet...
And they are very much opposite (mine being layed back, his more uptight!)

How did it go?! I hope it went well!!!

I love the shots at Chef Mickey's, your personalized shirt was so cute! I wish I would've had time for a great breakfast like that the day of my wedding :goodvibes

The ride on RRC was so classic Disney magic, definitely what you want to see on the morning of your wedding. That's so cute that you wanted to ride it that morning. We called my male cousin who stood up on my side a "bridal atttendant" but I'm not sure that he was excited about that title either :rotfl:

I am such a wishy washy when it comes to Disney Weddings and I could watch them over and over again. Please? :flower3:

I must say everything looked just FABULOUS!!! I would like to thank you b/c I have been inspired by a lot of your ideas...hope that is ok!! lol

Couple questions...what time was your MK shoot? We are wanting to do it as well but still weighing the pros and cons. suggestions?

And...loved your personalized shirts!! ESPECIALLY your FIL's!! I decided I'm going to do one but add to it...I Heart my Daughter in law...more than my son. :rotfl: My fiancee is convinced that his Dad likes me more than him and its a big joke of the family and I'm sure he will wear it!!

Loved your gift!! Im hoping I can drop enough hints that I'll get something good!! :laughing:

I was soo good.. and I was so full. I didn't have to eat anything at lunch.. which is good, cause thats when it hit me!!!lol!

Thank you so much! I'm working on some more...

Ummm.. well, they don't really like eachother, but it as ok. Mostly my parents.. they don't adapt to "different" people very well..lol. The RD was fun.. my parents got along with his mom great (but it was everyone's first time meeting his mom, including mine!) His dad is a little harder to get along with though, he did pay for the RD so I can't complain.. Whispering Canyon was a good choice because it was soo loud nothing much could happen!
All in all I don't think it could have possibly gone any better!!

Your wedding was early! I wouldn't have been able to eat breakfast either! And I love my RRC story.. It was awesome!
I think he was listed in my programs as a "bridal attendant, but I just like to call him me Bridesman.. bc I know he doesn't like it!!

Thank you! I think my FIL likes me too! Or maybe he just likes the fact that his son finally got married..lol!! I can't believe how often he wears his!

Our Mk shoot was at 5a.m.:scared1: really early, but really fun. We both took a nap in between the shoot and our breakfast ressies! But I would definately do it again! It was just fun to be in the MK in my dress!!! I was so excited, I think I circled the carousel about three times trying to find the perfect pony to match my bouquet..lol!!
Feel free to take any ideas.. thats why I made a pj!!

Getting Ready

We got ready at the Grand Floridian in my parents room.
parents room= lots of traffic=bad idea.

Throughout the 2.5 hours we had to get ready we had my mom, me, my sis, my bm, jared, my brother, his gf, my dad, my BIL, the flower girl, her mom, ana, ana's helper girl.. and then two photographers and two videographers.. it was a mess..
Oh.. we also had two mexican men painting the outside of our window... so they were stading on the balcony watching us get ready for about 45 minutes.. it was wierd.. :unsure: we didn't even know they were there until we turned around and two men were standing on our balcony!
Ana had to go an ask them if we could borrow one of the chairs they had all there crap in..
off to a good start..lol!

Honestly, this was the only part of the day I have any reason to gripe about.
I had already went and checked us into the Contemporary and was back at my moms room waiting for Ana about half an hour early..it was really chaotic, but it all worked out in the end!
so here goes..

my mom and BM getting started..
(thats our homemade topiaries and my louie baby :lol: in the back!!)

I think you can tell by my face here that I had had enough..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready2_1.jpg
Then things started to get better
here's the tiara I chose at the last possible second to nix..glad I did!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready1_2.jpg
My sister's re-do.. her hair was so curly, and then for some reason they slicked all the curls and put it into a french bun? I didn't get it? But I can barely fix my own hair!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready2.jpg
These are the Mickey Pins that both my BM's had on their dresses.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready1_5.jpg
I had a blue one pinned in my hair as my something blue..
it took about four attempts to get it to stay..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready2_2.jpg
kristens hair all finished..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready3_1.jpg
here's the part where we were running around like chickens with no heads.. in an all out scramble to get everything together.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready4_1.jpg
This shot shows my expensive eyelashes..lol..

the flower girl all ready to go..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/gettingready2_4.jpg
the door hangers I made, they were in the welcome bags
(this is what happened when we kicked the photogs out so we could get ready.. I think I have three different shots of just he room number?) maybe they got bored!

Carly -- you looked pretty with the tiara/headband, but gorgeous without it. Your hair is so pretty and shiny that the style looked really nice without the tiara. The picture where you look like you've had enough made me sad for you. You must have been feeling kind of overwhelmed. :hug:
See, at that point I'd want everyone to leave me alone except Howard. It must have been hard being surrounded by all the commotion and fussing. You looked cool and calm through all the later pix, though. princess: :bride:

Getting ready really was bad.. way to much going on, and when we realized we were supposed to be on the staircase in 20 minutes.. no make-up no dress... we panicked. Going from that, to standing still on the staircase was pretty wierd.. it was hard for me to catch my breath. But it was soo much better when those bells rang and the doors opened!!

It definitely sounds like there were a ton of people in the room getting ready! We felt crowded at POR, but we had kicked the guys into another room- dad, cousin, etc.

I can't believe the guys on the balcony. You were a lot nicer than me, I probably would've called the front desk to complain!

The picture of you and your mom is really cute :cutie: I can't wait to read more!

Thank you! There were alot of people around, but I think even now.. aside from family, I would want them all with me!

Thanks! I was really surprised the front desk never called to let us know they were going to be painting. I think that's what made it so bad. That much $$$ and no call??

Pre-Ceremony Pictures

The boys
So at his point, I couldn't tell you what I was doing beside panicing!

Here's a few shots of them on there way over to the pavilion. I didn't really like any of the shots of them inside or at the staircase. We have a ton but they are boring. There is one I want to scan because it's wierd looking. The way the photographer stood them on the staircase makes me dizzy!

So here they are outside...

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW_2.jpg

I have comes to terms with the fact that I married a nerd. They spent the night before the wedding at Disney Quest. They all just look like a bunch of nerds!!

He calls this the "resevoir dogs" shot
(told you.. nerd!)
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW_1.jpg
Cliff, the BM, (far right) can't tolerate the heat! So I knew our shots would come back like this. His house is always about 14 below zero! I don't know how his wife stands it!

I love this shot of Jesse, but he hates it..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/JesseoutsideGF.jpg

OK.. I have TONS of pictures coming but most are from 4 different peoples cameras! If they are blurry.. it's my moms fault.. She was just snapping with excitement instead of watching what she was doing! Yay for my mom! She's awesome!

Here's what we saw when we first stepped outside to head over to the lobby!
The duckies were having themselves a good time!!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding025.jpg

Ok so...
Because everything was so chaotic leading up to this moment.. I remember my mind being very blank at this point. I remember we couldn't decide if Jared should be in these pictures or not.. and we were all standing there looking blank! But he's in them!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW_5.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070025_1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070024_1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding027.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding028.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding029.jpg

These are the only pictures I got with my sister before the wedding. They had scheduled her sound check while we taking all the early pictures.. It was kinda sad to see her go. But most of the other pictures we just of me.. She as pretty mad she missed the CC though.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding030.jpg
SO we sent my sister off (apparently on a golf cart) and made our way all over the GF lobby....

This is one of my favorite pictures from the wedding. It makes me glad I didn't second guess my dress choice!
But that split in my hair is going to drive me nuts!!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GFstaircasealbumcover.jpg
And here's the other picture..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW-1.jpg

And here's tons more my mom and Jared took!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070021_1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070027_1.jpg

In this one, Mike, one of our photographers went running upstairs to get the overhead shot!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070026_1.jpg

And the overhead version:
(I have cleavage, that never happens!!)

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070028_1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding039-2.jpg

These are my moms favorites!
She meant we were getting a ton of piano shots.. and we did!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW2.jpg

In this one, Mike, the awesome DPS photographer went running upstairs to get another overhead shot. They came back with my reflection on the piano.. I think my mom was satisfied...lol!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW_4.jpg
You can see all the people who were watching us! There was a whole family of little girls on the other side of the piano and all there jaws were dropped. it was adorable!

And these...
There is a shot somewhere of my mom fixing my hair at the piano.. she went crazy! I'll have to look for it.. she just walked into the middle of everything to fix my bangs!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070037_1.jpg

And here is crazy lady and Joe talking about the piano pictures..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070045_1.jpg

and the chair shots.. these are Jesse's fav.
But here's what I remember about this moment.
The second I sat down in the chair.. it hit me!
Oh my god, I'm really getting married. I wonder where Jesse is? I wonder if he's nervous? I wonder if he's all clammy? I hope he fixed his hair, he better have done a good job on his hair! (I gave him lessons pre-wedding since he never fixes his hair) I wonder if he's trapped in the grooms room yet? I wonder if people are there? OH my god!! I'm really not sure why this was the moment, but it hit me hard!

I must have had an all out look of panic on my face because I looked up and Jared whispered to me " Are you breathing?"
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GrandFloridianPW_3.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070030_1.jpg

And the crazy videographer! Everytime I turned around he had the camera pointed at us at some wierd angle. He crawled all over the place. I think he even under the coach filming.. I might have a "What The" look on my face... But I can't wait to see it!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070032_1.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070031_1.jpg

And my happy mother!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070033_1.jpg

and some more... told you I had a ton!

Jared's self portrait of his flower?
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070044_1-1.jpg

Jared took this shot.. but I kinda like it...

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070043_1.jpg

Here's my FSIL Katy

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070023_1.jpg

And here she is with my brother.. They got engaged the day after my wedding at the MK!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070041_1.jpg

My mom and "bridesmaid" Kristen

Me and Mommy

Me and my FG, Ivana

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding050.jpg

The doorway shots..
Joe sent me in between the doors and caught my FG, Ivan's reflection as she was watching me!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/GFperceremony.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070034_1.jpg
(here's the family of little girls!)
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/P8070039_1.jpg

And this is where they took me way on the other side of the lobby, I was so confused.
But I soon realized it was because the Cindy's Coach was pulling up and they didn't want me to see. It was confusing bc everyone had gone outside.. Joe had me do some shots against the wall but I think they look like Mission Impossible so I skipped over those!

Oh yes, and the GF shots are taken automatically when you have a wedding at the pavilion. I forget who asked that one.
Also, thank you so much for the PM. I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet. I think I may sit down Sunday morning with my cup of coffee and have a good relaxing time watching it. Thanks again and I can't wait to see more!

Carly,
I just spent my morning downloading and watching your ceremony. It was beautiful, magical, and amazing. I cried when Jesse was having trouble getting the words out during your vows. You were both glowing...you can truely see the love that you hold for each other in your eyes. Your sister's singing was beautiful. I cried like the whole time she was singing and I thought it was a recording until the camera showed her singing. In fact, when I realized it was her singing I got chills and cried even harder. How magical your day was. Thank you so much for letting me watch the ceremony. It was beautiful and I enjoyed every minute of it. :hug:

Thanks! My mom was serious about those shots! And she was soo excited! And yes, I kept thinking it would hit me when when it got closer, or maybe on the drive down there.. but not less than an hour before I walked down the aisle!! It was all so fun though!!
everything looks so beautiful!

Thank you! :goodvibes

The part in my bangs drove me crazy the entire day! It's just one of those things I guess!:lmao: Thanks for the compliments.. I think the one that shows the lace is one of my absolute favs!
I hope the video worked for you! We got the full length video on Friday, but there are a few issues.. so it's going back.. no worries! This they have to take care of!!!!

Love all the pics.. did you request to have a lot of pics taken in the lobby?!
Thanks! Like the above said.. The lobby is part of the package I guess!! And I didn't request that.. it's just what they did (amount wise)

awww! Thank you so much! My sister panicked, but I still think she did a good job! I'm so glad she did that! And Jesse.. he's a big cry baby! To this day, he always brings up the fact that I didn't cry and he was bawling!! He's so cute! I think he had then entire place, except for me, in tears! I was just soo caught up in everything! Thank you for all the kind things you said! Every minute of it was amazing!!
Hopefully I can find a way to show the one we just got!

I wish I knew how! I asked Disney to do it for me for the album, but I am afraid that will want a lot of money for something like that! Thanks for the compliments!!

Thank you!!:goodvibes Jesse just loves the one of me in the chair! I think it's going to be on his nightstand if we ever get into our house!! lol! My mom adored the piano shots she had seen before the wedding, and she meant I was getting some!!! I think thats why the photographers took a little extra time!!

Cinderella's Glass Coach!!!!!

:dance3: :dance3: :dance3: :dance3: :dance3: :dance3: :dance3: :dance3:
This was my FAVORITE part of the entire day... but don't tell Jesse!! lol, of course getting married was wonderful, but the coach was my favorite part of the Disney part of our day. There are simply no words to describe how I felt at this moment.. it was just perfect!!:cloud9: I had absolutely no idea my mom had planned to get me the coach all along! When we pulled up to Francks two days before my wedding to drop stuff off, and the coach rounded the corner! I was soo sad! I had been eyeballing the thing since I was in elementary school!!!

The Coach just wouldn't fit into our budget.. or so I thought!!

So, at this point, the assistant who was taking us across to the pavilion had me standing oddly behind the staircase.. which I thought was suspicious! Anyway.. everyone else was waiting outside, I assumed for the limo, and we were just waiting and waiting inside. A little bit later, I peeked around the corner, and there it was!!!! I just barely saw the corner of the wheel to the coach sitting outside..and I LOST IT!! and I mean I lost it!!!! The assistant panicked and put the flower box up in front of my face so I wouldn't look anymore, but it was too late. I knew exactly what it was!!!! You can certainly tell by the pictures how incredible it was, even thinking of this moment makes me all teary eyed! My mom is soo incredible!!!! She rocks!!

Here's the coach and photographers being set up outside before I found them..

And then my mom starting stapping away!! She did this the entire ride!!!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding086-1.jpg

The ride over to the pavilion was simply amazing! All the traffic going in and out of the GF had to stop for us to cross the street, and there were people everywhere taking our pictures! It was such a good feeling!

Your mickey pomanders (sp?) turned out so cute!
Can you pm me about how you made them, the tips and tricks?
Pretty please!! :lovestruc


I think I want to make some larger versions to hand from the WP doors, if my WP will let me. Or I might even make some for other things. :goodvibes

Thanks!! I'll work on it. I didn't make them my sister did, so I'll have to get with her!

Carly, I think you've mentioned before but you had DPS for all your pics right? who were your photographers? they did a wonderful job! :goodvibes
Yes! DPS did our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and MK shoot.
We had Joe Duncan and Mike (Strickland?? I think) for the wedding.
And Ty Boyce for the MK shoot.
I have no idea who did our RD.. sorry!

I'm so happy for you..what a special moment that was. I wanted the coach too, but unfortunately it was out of both me and my mothers budget. :sad2:

The Bride's Vestibule

I'm not sure what happened to the photographers at this point, but my mom still mananged to get MORE shots!! lol.

I remember more about the few minutes I was in the vestibule than any other part of our wedding. As soon as I got in there, my heart was racing, and boy did I have to pee!:lmao:

Anyway.. I think this picture really sums up how I was feeling!
Water never tasted soo good!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding088.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/carlyswedding089.jpg

I remember one by one they came to get everyone.. my mom was first, and I simply cannot explain the feeling I felt when I heard the music start. My heart was pounding and my knees were shaking.
I heard the "Grooms Choir" start and all I could do was try and peak around the door to see Jesse. I just wanted once glimpse.
I had listened to the "Organ Sample Music" cd from Disney about 8562556 times, and it was finally playing in the pavilion for MY wedding.. I almost lost it right there! It is all still very surreal to me!
I did manage to see a bit of the "outside world" while I was trapped inside the vestibule, and it only made me more shaky!!!

About two seconds later, it was the girls turn! And they were gone. There was no one there but me and my daddy!

Oh, Carly! These pictures are so wonderfully candid. You are gorgeous even when you are scared or stressed. I can just feel the anticipation. I am so glad you weren't alone when you were nervous.

I am curious of what you thought of the Groom's Choir. It is so hard to tell what that piece of music is on the sampler CD and I can't find it anywhere on-line to listen to. Had you heard it full-length anywhere? Did you like it?

haha.. thanks Cam! I knew it would hit me, I just didn't realize how hard!
I'm working on getting my video online for you!! And you can hear it. Personally I think it sounded nothing like the cd. And the disney medley at the end was very different. They weren't bad, I had just over-listened to the cd, and was expecting to be identical. I did like the both!

The Wedding Ceremony!!

SO....not that we are finally moved in, and Jesse finally put his new computer together, I can update!!

Yay.. and I am so sorry it has been almost two months.

Ok so...

I'll start with the processional:

Here's the altar

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8259.jpg

And Major Domo waiting at the door to try the slipper on all the girls.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8260.jpg

Here's Jesse's me-ma

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8268.jpg

And his English grandmother. She has the greatest accent!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8269.jpg

And Jesse's mom..

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8271.jpg

Since we didn't do the unity candle, we had our moms walk in and pour our seperate colors in the sand vase to signify their foundation in our lives.

Here's my mom in HER moment...

Jesse and his nerd bombers.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8277.jpg

Then Kristen

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8278.jpg

Then my MOH, my older sister ( and my nephew!)

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8279.jpg

Then My younger brother rolled out the aisle runner

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8283.jpg

She only dropped like 3 petals

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8292.jpg
I was looking at my mom

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8293.jpg
Then Jesse forgot he had to come get me, So my dad had to tell him to.

01-08-2009, 07:53 PM
I tried to face the pastor like you are supposed to, but Jesse kept pulling my back around. SO we faced eachother the entire ceremony :rolleyes:

Jesse had such a blank look on his face. He claims that how he fought off crying, but if you watch our video you will hear that he DID cry!!


Random photographer shot.

I hated wearing that stupid blusher veil the entire time. Jesse really, really wanted me to and there was no way I could say no.
Plus, it made our kiss so much better, but all our ceremony pictures look like this. The stinkin thing was bunched! And my permanent fake eyelashes were stuck to it!!!

Okay so, then we did rings.

The best man pretending to look for the rings..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/100_8302.jpg

Then major domo brought them in:

We were so nervous, I barely remember this part!

jessesgirl-080708
01-08-2009, 07:56 PM
Then we did the sand ceremony, but Jesse was the nervous one! He dumped his sand into the container, so ours turned out looking really ugly. We even practiced!

Our pastor poured in a layer of white sand in order to signify a spiritual foundation
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Ceremony/SandCeremony.jpg

then we "mixed" ours!

Dr Cinderella - you are 22..do you think that is too young to be married?

True Story - both sets of my grandparents were married at 14/18 to men 19/23...all their folks thought they were never tie the knot!! But they were both married 50+ years

I love some of the things you did with the sand ceremony like having the white put in by the minister as your spiritual foundation; what a great touch! Kris poured his too fast too and ours was a little lopsided at the end, but it got mixed in transit home, so it was okay in the end.

Its funny how you mentioned the blusher. My mom wore hers during her ceremony and always complained about having it covering her face. I decided to just wear the blusher until we got down the aisle and then my dad lifted it off, so it wasn't on my face during the ceremony. I love the story about your eyelashes. Isn't it funny how the little things can really drive us nuts during the ceremony :rotfl: You did look beautiful though! We also just ended up looking at each other during the ceremony and not the minister. Kris was so nervous and was holding onto my hands so tight it was hard to try to face teh minister.

It looks like the ceremony was wonderful. I loved the colors and what a great touch with having your sister sing. :goodvibes

Thanks Vanessa! One of my friends did the white sand and I liked the idea, but I made up the mom part. It was a good idea, but now the vase is in hiding because it looks so bad!!!
And like you said about Chris, Jesse was so nervous that during our ceremony he kept slapping my hands, kinda like he was clapping. And at one point if got really loud. He doesn't remember, but I tried my hardest to get him to stop!!!

beautiful pictures !!

I was almost set on not wearing it, but I just couldn't. For some reason, it was really important to him to lift the veil.
Right before we went in, Ken, my planner, was telling my dad about puching it back. And I told him we were leaving it down, he looked at my like I was crazy, but I am soo glad we did it!!

Our exit:

We went over to Costco two days before the wedding and bought 4 dozen roses. ($14.99 for two dozen) and they always look good!
It was kinda sad plucking them in our hotel room at the GF, but it saved us a lot of money!!!
Ok These are from so many different cameras:
Everyone all lined up.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/100_8364.jpg
And then the bright idea I had to use these streamers...not good!
$1 for a confetti shooter thing. I thought it would be a fun idea. And it was, until the best man shot us in the face.
Let me tell you, that streamer is like 20 ft long, we were soooo tangled.
So, I guess it was fun, but my whole "Do NOT shoot me in the face" speech to the BM was no good. Or maybe it is the reason he did it!!
I have a picture of this somewhere where the streamer is stuck to Jesse's nose!

Thanks girls! It was certainly perfect!

And YES! My sister did ALL my floral except the boutonnieres and mother corsages! She did a great job. The pomanders were very easy! Very easy to make yourself! I'd say it was the easiest part of all the floral we did..and we did alot!

Disney originally quoted us at 125$ for a basic (very simple) small mickey pomander for the flower girl only.. so they are pricey! The ones we made for my BM's were larger than the one my flower girl carried.. so consider making them yourselves! Trust me..it's very easy!

Thanks again girls!!!
Lots more to come!!!

I sent you a PM but just saw this. Where the flowers at the back of the chapel permanent? I've never seen those arrangements in pics before.

I had a question about your guests transportation. I got the impression that you didn't provide a bus or limo or anything for your guests and I was wondering if that worked out well? I assume just about everyone has rental cars on vacation anyways, so did you just tell everyone when and where to show up? This seems like it would save a lot of unneccesary headache and money, so I was just wondering. Did they just walk from the Wedding Pavillion to the Whitehall Room (and also the dessert party location), are these all a pretty short walk from eachother? Also, who directed them where to go since I assume you and your bridal party were taking pictures after the ceremony? Thanks!

We did have a limo but most guests drove from the WP to the GF, that way when it was all over they lef in their own cars. We live 2.5 hours, so everyone had their own car. major Domo was supposed to tell them where to go, but I wan't there so I can't answer that.
it depends on you really, we just didn't want to cut something out and most people would have drove their own cars instead of taking a bus .5 mile.

I feel like such a dork, but I have to tell you Carly that I can't stop looking at your beautiful TR pics! I hope my wedding turns out as beautiful as yours! It is truly one of the prettiest DIS weddings on these boards.

Pre- Reception

I only have a whopping three pictures of the pre-reception, so here they go!!

We just did a simple cheese/fruit display because we had soo much other food. Frankly, I didn't care what they ate at the pre, it really didn't matter!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/100_8377.jpg

And I have no idea what major domo was talking about. We weren't there yet, so I have no idea what he told everybody!!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/100_8379.jpg

And thats all!!

Off to loads tons more of the reception!!
I have got to finish this thing!!!!!

Reception

Whitehall was a really great space for the group we had. We ended up using the entire space, and loved it. We had dinner inside, and then moved back outside for the dancing where Mickey and Minnie met us.
The open space really made the room a great choice!
Plus, we lucked out with out color choices. We had already chosen to do green chair covers before we realized the wall paper had green stripes in it!!

Okay....
finally, my reception pictures!!!!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/reception-tablesetting.jpg

Instead of assigning people a seat, we just gave them an assigned table with a Disney character name.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan11_1.jpg

And each seat was marked with a love quote from various Disney movies. I ended up finding some really cute ones, and lots of people were talking about them!

02-23-2009, 07:09 PM
so then, we finally made it to the reception and I was dying for something to drink!!
After what seemed like forever, Major Domo announced everyone into the room.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/100_8384.jpg

We all went straight to sit down, and Major domo said his goodbyes

Then it was on to the toasts:rolleyes:
My sister (MOH) went first and gave a sweet toast about our " happily ever after" and we all go teary...

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Wedding575_2.jpg

And THEN...came the Best man
I should have known that this was coming... but for some reason, I thought he would let it slide.
He starts off my saying "I have a presentation to make" and I thought to myself Oh God....
And he starts talking
About two seconds into his speech he reaches into his bag and pulls these out...
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan1_1.jpg
YEP... that is exactly what you think it is.
Not only that, but he handed them to me. I immediately put them on floor.. I was mortified.. both my pastors AND my parents were sitting right next to me.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan1_2.jpg
You can tell my this picture how much I really wanted to kill him!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan11_2.jpg
The farther away it gets, the funnier it gets. At the time, I was just so embarassed. BUT Jesse laughed his butt off...
So not fair!!!!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/receptionCliffJesese-toast.jpg
They love eachother!!!:lmao:

So..then it was onto our yummy dinner. Everything we had to eat was amazing!!!!!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan1_3.jpg

The Shrimp Cocktail appetizer came out to "Be Our Guest"
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/Scan11_3.jpg

Then we had the iceberg wedge with an edible flower. So pretty, and it actually tasted pretty good. Not a lot of people were willing to eat their flower, but I did!

And then we switched over to a buffet for the entree.
Way too many choices

After dinner we headed out to the balcony for our first dance...

Carly,
Your reception looked beautiful! I love how the chair covers matched the decor of the room even if you didn't mean for that to happen. Gotta love that Disney magic! We did names of characters on our tables too...great minds think alike. ;) I can't wait to see the outside pictures!!!

I was so glad to see an update :dance3:

I totally agree about the pre-reception. I didn't do anything beyond a cheese and fruit display either. So, was there any of Major Domo on your video? Maybe that can answer the mysteries of what he said at the pre-reception.

How horrifying about the best man's speech; I definitely would not have been nice enough to hug him :headache: Typical guy behavior. At least your sister did a wonderful job on her MOH speech.

Carly~ first off your food looks so delicious. I know its in your PJ somewhere, but what were your main entrees?

Woohoo! All 1200 and something pictures are mine!

So.. I know that is no excuse as to taking 9 months to complete a pj (holy cow...it's already been 9 months!!) but I promise to finish this thing.. besides I am almost there!!

Thank you! I couldn't decide who to leave out of our table names. Since I wanted to use the Fab five I had to cut one since we had only four tables..in the end poor Pluto got the cut, but I liked the idea of his entire family sitting at the Donald table:lmao:

yes, yes...it was mortifiying!! And those stupid things are still sitting on my desk! But no, no footage of the pre-reception except a quick shot of the food... so it will remain a mystery!
For the food, we had a scallop and shrimp skewer in a pinot grigio sauce, chicken marsala, and a beef carving station with the blackberry demi. BUT the mashed potatos ended up being my fav!
Thanks again:goodvibes

Moving to Jax? Which part? You will like it! It's conveniently located 2.5 hours from the world!!
As for my BM.. well he knows how I feel!

And thats so funny what you said about the dress. I went looking for a princessy dress, but ended up with this one. I added a slip underneath to give it some poof, but I was really happy with the turn out. Though I do have to admit, sometimes poofy dresses make me jealous....

Thank you!

I am patiently waiting for the dessert party! :)

It's coming.. I promise!

I am patiently waiting for the rest too!!

Whitehall Patio

So, right after dinner we headed outside on the patio for our first dance. We were both dreading it, but we knew we had too. (mom)
But we had something planned that took the edge off...

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1109.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1110.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0936.jpg

Notice my mom in the background... it was like she forgot we payed someone to take the pictures!!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0939.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0941.jpg

And then... two of my friends decided to cut in..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1117.jpg

He says he didn't want to dance with Minnie.. yea right!!
He looks torchered doesn't he??
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1125.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1124.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1122.jpg
They cut in at the very end of the song, so Jesse didn't have to suffer for long!

And then Minnie pretended to "ohh" over me... it was cute though!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1123.jpg

Then we went inside for the cake cutting. (had to go out then in because we had limited time with Mickey and Minnie)

Our have to admit I didn't like our cake table set up, because our guests were just watching our backs as we cut the cake.. so just a warning to any other brides using Whitehall...move your cake!
Just to show you, this is a pic my mom took
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/carlyswedding146.jpg

we cut our cake to the song "Somewhere over the Rainbow" By Iz... it's in the movie 50 first dates.. has a good tie with out engagement story too!

So we headed back in..

We weren't to mean to eachother... just a little.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1152.jpg

Then we headed down the hall to get a few pics with Mickey and Minnie..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0971.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1176.jpg

And back out to the patio we went to dance with Mickey and Minnie before they had to leave us.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/carlyswedding143.jpg

Then we had to say goodbye to Mickey and Minnie:sad1:
But we had lots of other fun stuff to do..

Next, I danced with my dad.
We used "Cinderella" By Stephen Curtis Chapman.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1182.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1185.jpg

I cried at the very end when he hugged me. I made it all the way through the song, and then I cried!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1187.jpg

Then Jesse danced with his mom..
They used "You Raise Me Up" By Josh Groban
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1194.jpg
They are cry babies, so they cried the entire time. They hadn't seen eachother for a while before the wedding, so his mom was a wreck the entire time!

Then.. I arranged for my sister to get a father/daughter dance. She got married back in '01 but didn't get a father/daughter dance. So I thought she would like it.. and I think she did!

After that we did the bouquet dance, but we called it the wedding dance. It's the one where the couple who has been married the longest is the last on the dance floor. The DJ eliminates couples by announcing anniversaries. It was really fun! But of course, we were first to go!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1213.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1013.jpg

Since my sister was eight months pregnant, she and her husband decided the only way they could dance was backwards..:rotfl: Too much belly!

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1143.jpg

In the end it came down to my parents (32 years) and our pastor (40 years). My mom looked so proud..
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1211.jpg

So, since the pastor and his wife won, the DJ asked them to give us some marital advice. (he told Jesse to learn to say "Yes Maam!"):lmao:
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1214.jpg

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1215.jpg

Then, the DJ gave advice to the couple.. and he played the song, lets get it on..thats why my face was so red! It caught me off guard!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-1016.jpg


OH.. and this is my flower girl and a friends daughter. They had just found the castle and were standing up tall to ty and look at it. It was too cute! And one of their first times to see it!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0935.jpg


And a few things we had outside for decor...
The tea lights, and confetti on the tables
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn290/jessesgirl-080708/Wedding%20Reception/080783-0958.jpg


You can see the Mickey tea light holders here.

What a great idea to have Mickey and Minnie come in during your dance. My DH wasn't super thrilled about the idea of having characters (although our budget didn't allow anyway) but he dreaded our dance, so I might have convinced him to get them if they came in at that point :goodvibes That is kind of strange how they have the cake setup with your backs to people. At least your photographer got some nice shots from the side. The picture of the two girls looking at the castle is so cute princess: It really looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Did Disney provide the Mickey tealights or did you?

Oh Carly I am so glad to see you posting again! You left us hanging at the best part girl!!! Your reception looked like a blast. The one thing I regret from our reception was not having Mickey and Minnie visit...we couldn't because it was set to be held outside in Epcot and the characters aren't allowed outside until regular guests have left the park. Then it rained the whole time and ended up being inside anyways....bummer! I can't wait to see some more. Keep it coming :goodvibes

I also like the pic with the two little girls admiring the castle from the light pole :) Adorable.

Too bad your back was to your guests for the cake cutting!!! Whoaaa... That's like, bad on Disney's part.. what were they thinking?
such a gorgeous cake though!!!!! i LOVED it!!!!

Well, since my last post to you, we moved to Jacksonville! We live right at Jacksonville Beach.... I work at the new Ulta in St Johns Town Center as a hair stylist... you gotta come check out the store sometime, if you're close!!! it's huge! or if you ever want your hair done :) we have awesome conditioning treatments! LOL seriously! awesome place. i do love it here though! and so completely excited to only be 2.5 hrs away from Disney!!!!! that's the best part! <3 :cloud9:

Hey, I know where Ulta is! I go to UNF...right across the street from there! I'll have to go by there one day when you are working!
Thanks for the compliments! Our cake tasted soo good! I had a bday cake made with the same flavors, but it just wasn't the same!!

Carly, LOVE your toasting flutes! Where'd you find them?

Thank you. They came from a store called Things Remembered.

Thanks! I liked how everything turned out too! We did all our dancing outside, but they still set up a dance floor in the room, incase of rain. Wasn't my idea, but I really didn't care. Maybe I should have researched more... lol. Sounds like you have it all figured out! I loved going in and out of Whitehall, it was a lot more fun than being inside for the entire night!

That's my FSIL trying to reach for the bouquet!

We ended up having a couple catch the garter and bouquet..but they still aren't married!:confused3

Then we went back inside, for the last time to eat cake and do our farewell dance.
I had a chocolate slipper waiting for me, haha...only one though!!

I had a slice of the chocolate layer of the cake with Bailey's Mousse in it...so good! I had the same flavors made in my birthday cake this year, but it wasn't as good!
Then for our farewell dance we danced to Steve Tyrell's version of "They Way You Look Tonight"
It's the version that is on the movie Father of the Bride. My favorite movie!
I took a big bite out of my chocolate slipper as the DJ announced it was time for the last dance of the evening....
So for the first minute of the song I was trying to chew the chocolate discretely....oops!

The entire time we were dancing I was trying to explain the meaning of the song to DH...romantic huh? Completely killed the real meaning:rotfl:

Dessert Party

I remember walking out of Whitehall and heading over to Sago Cay and my FIL kept asking what time the MK was opening in the morning? :confused3 Like I had it memorized. Then he starts to tell us bye...umm hello! I sent out a newsletter and it was in his welcome bag..but no! Dessert Party? What Dessert party? Sometimes... I just want to smack him:rolleyes1 He had no idea what was going on..he actally asked me if the reception was before the ceremony?????
What?
Just goes to show you how much he cared:rotfl:

So anyways, I'll admit I wasn't impressed with any of the footage DPS got with our DP. Most of it is just okay, but there aren't any great ones.
It doesn't bother me too much, because they have done other things to compensate, but nothing will bring back the video I footage I wish wasn't ruined.
oops...no room for sadness here! :cheer2:
okay, so WISHES was at 10:00 pm that night and we headed over about 9:30 I was worried the entire night that it would be hot being outside on the Whitehall Patio, but with all the fans, and how late it was..it never got that hot..
But man...I roasted at the DP! My dress stuck to me the entire time! It was soo humid out there!

here's the pics I have:

We had display of mini everything on the dessert buffet. I have to pics though? I tasted a bite of something my sister had, but that was all I ate. I wish I would have loaded a box up though for the next day!!

And these are our fireworks shots, they are all the same. So after a few, they get boring....

See what I mean,
And those are the good ones. I was surprised they never even asked us to turn around of kiss or anything?

it was a lot of fun though! I am really glad we did it, because it ended a perfect day in a good way!

The videographers went around and asked people to say something for our video, which was really fun to watch! And we started to hug people by. I think everyone was a little glad to be heading to bed. I know I was!
The DP cleared out really fast, and I waited on Ken to bring me my flowers back and my veil while they were cleaning out Whitehall. But, the florist accidentally picked up my silk bouquet and brought it with them to drop of the day of our Mk shoot...but, since I made mine instead of having them do it, we had to try and trace it down and have it delivered to the Contemporary the next day. I was really nervous that it would get lost, but we found it!

I headed over to my mom's room to get my purse,lol, and my entire family headed to the monorail to tell us bye. Instead of being normal and just hug us, they wanted to ride around with us..

So, we out to the monorail and the CM told us to sit upfront, so we did.

That's a scary, sweaty pic of us!!!:rotfl:
My brother and SIL sat with us. When we made it around to the Contemporary, my mom and sister jumped out of the car behind us to scream and cheer.. a little embarassing, but really funny!
Without thinking it through I headed down the escalator in my wedding dress..lots of people were watching me! :lmao:

We went down and picked up the keys to our room, and said goodbye to the wedding day. I was sad it was over, I still am, but I was so glad the Contemporary had soft beds!

Carly-your pictures did come out beautiful and you look like you had so much fun. i love your dress! i still can't beleive how they set up the cake table but at least the photographer got some good shots. I have a question-the tables you had outside, are the already there or did you have to request them?

You had such a beautiful night! I'm sooo jealous! :rotfl: I think that your pics of the fireworks were lovely. If it makes you feel any better, mine were not DPS and were posed and still look quite similar. :goodvibes I'll be waiting to see some honeymoon pics now...oh and the pictures of your first day as a married woman of course! :surfweb:

How exciting to see everything come together! That's funny about how you got called to dance in the middle of eating your slipper :goodvibes FIL sounds like my MIL who had no clue what was going on the entire day of our wedding. I think the fireworks pictures are nice, but I know what you mean about some looking the same. I think its that way with a lot of the fireworks shots from weddings. To me, I figure the most important thing is that you have these pictures because how many brides actually have fireworks at all on their wedding days! :bride:

I feel as though I am bringing this thread back from the dead (it's been a while since a post!) but I just wanted to say how much I LOVED your color choice! So different!

I had a question. Did you pay an extra fee to have the Major Domo stay? Would he have stayed the whole wedding regardless if he did the announcements at the reception?

I just haven't seen a lot of people who have had that at their wedding, and I was curious!

You look gorgeous in your pictures!

Wow...little surprising to see out PJ out here. It was definitely a dead one!!

Thanks so much for the compliments! I went back and forth alot on those stinkin' colors!
As far as Major Domo, I am pretty sure he is $650, and his job is to bring in the rings during the ceremony and then announce you in at the reception. So yes, he will be there!!

So...since this thread was dug up...I thought I would finally share my video! It only took Disney about oh...seven months to finally get us a copy....but I have the montage online if you guys want to see it....

It's just the montage portion of our video, but I love it!!

Your video is awesome! Thanks for sharing...and I for one am glad to see your trippie again.
One quick question for you. You said that Disney Photo Services did that video for you...was it a special package or an add on you had to order? The video that they took for me was not nearly as cool AT ALL.

So I started reading your PJ after you posted about the dress on mine. First you had an amazing wedding and if mine is half as beautiful as yours I'd be thrilled. Your dress was simply amazing, I hope I can get a good deal on it...because it is simply breathtaking. I am having so much fun putting together our guest welcome bags..we are just having a hard time figuring out how to get it all down there.

All of your pics are also amazing..I am not going with an outside photo vendor and was a little nervous about Dis Photogs but you've eased my anxiety a little bit.

Your video montage made me want to have a videographer..how much did you pay for yours?

Thank you so much hmdelf!

I was just trying to put together a few trip ideas for our anniversary and got to thinking about this TR and wondered if it were still around.

DH and I have been up to A LOT since the wedding....

This is our son, Owen.

Right now I am in grad school, but I get to stay home and spend most of my time with our little man!
Almost time for his first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop!

Hope your VR planning is going great! Hard to believe it has been almost three years since our wedding day!

OMG!!! Your little man is precious! love that photo shot with the ears! Oh i wish I thought of that when my three were that little!!!
I am totally snagging your Mouse Head flowers for my VR! My DD will love it! I am wondering if I can do it in minis for my boys for boutineers? I am going to give it a try!

Good luck in grad school. Cherish ever minute at home. I am blessed with being at home with my three and I thank God (on most days LOL) for the chance. I started a little boutique out of my home to help ends meet and hopefully when DD is in school FT I will go back to school. Keep us posted on your anniversary trip. DH and I went for our 5th anniversary. We repeated a lot of our honeymoon things. I also had Disney Florist deliver a wine package to the room. It was worth every penny! We took advantage of it after the kiddos went to bed!:rolleyes1
