Morgan and Jeff's Whimsical Wedding - Wedding photos blogged pg7

I'm not a great planner.. so I didn't do a planning journal. In fact, I left most decisions until the last minute. Thank goodness for wedding planners! But, these boards helped us so much in making the decision to have a Disney wedding and in inspiring me that I wanted to contribute back with our experiences and ideas.

Let's start with reviews, shall we?

Ken Weaver/Jen Flores - I was really excited when we were assigned Ken as our wedding planner because I remembered him as "the guy from the Food Network special". There is a reason they put him on TV - he is very good at what he does. We both felt incredibly comfortable putting things in his and Jen's hands. They made us feel so at ease with everything. Jen deserves equal credit; she was always answering e-mails promptly and in the days leading up to the wedding she helped calmed my nerves about the increasing chance of rain (more on that later!). I don't know we could have pulled all of this off without the two of them! Major bonus points to them as well for orchestrating all of the day-of changes without any hiccups at all. It was an amazingly smooth process.

Disney Floral/Laura Kidd - Laura was so nice, I wish I could give her all gold stars but I she lost some "warm and fuzzy" point when she got our names wrong.. twice. In our PS she called Jeff "Jeremy", which we took in good spirits and joked around about. However, when our estimate came it was outlined for Jeff and Allyson. Maybe it was the mood I was in, but it wasn't funny anymore. It did all get worked out, but if I am being honest, that did impact my overall view of her. Otherwise I loved our bouquets and the decor. She/Floral did a great job as well with the last minute change as well, you'd have never known it wasn't planned that way!

Beaute Speciale - I had Ana for my trial, and Ana, Laine and Carrie for the day of services. I wish I could go hang out with them for a day. Not only are the immensely talented, but they are a riot. It felt like we had three friends in the room; we laughed and chatted and they really made everything feel light and easy. Everyone loved their hair and make-up and it really lasted - even through several (and I do mean several) tears on my end, my make-up stayed perfect.

Studio 222 - I love Nate and Becka! I cannot accurately express how happy we are with the decision to book Studio 222. If I had to re-do the whole wedding over again and could only keep one thing from the original (aside from Jeff, of course!), it would be Nate and Becka. I adore their work, they are fabulous people -- and well, I think their photos speak for themselves.

Rev. Miller - A+ We aren't terribly religious people and originally we were going to go with a notary, but I knew that having our ceremony be officiated by a minister of some type was important to some members of our family (ahem, hi mom). We went with the contemporary ceremony from Rev. Miller and he had no problem at all with us altering his script and adding personal elements. He made us feel so at ease and balanced the perfect amount of humor and sincerity in the ceremony.

Coming up later in the trip report... We're late for a very important date!, Hoop-Dee-Dooing it Rehearsal dinner, A Very Mad Surprise!, Somebody's Getting Married...
