Cool Carolina & Sergio (camara381) PJ 9/5/09 II/LLS :( ~ TR Day 1

I have been a long time lurker on here and since I started a PJ on my other site I thought it would be a good idea to start one here too. There are a few details that I will leave out, just to avoid giving too much info away. its really exciting that I actually get to start one. I've been reading everyone elses for a while now, I just hope mine turns out as beautiful as al the other weddings I've seen. A lot of ideas I've gotten from other brides so thank you ladies.

Wishes Wedding
Location of Wedding: We will be having an offsite Catholic Ceremony the location is TBD we plan on making a trip to orlando around August to visit a few churches.

Cocktail hour: Italy Isola during Illuminations, Epcot

Reception: Italy Plaza (previously Italy Courtyard), Epcot

Bridal Party:

Bestman: My twin brother M
Groomsman: Sergio's Brother C.r

Ringbearer: My son .

How did you meet: Ummm...I was dating his best friend. He showed up one day at my work looking for my then boyfriend. My BF and I had just gotten into a fight because he was cheating on me I was crying as i walked to the bathroom and I ran into sergio, he wiped my tears and told me that he didn't like to see women crying, and that no man was worth it. 4 months later we started dating.

How/when/where did you get engaged: well it was very informal. We already had a civil ceremony a few yrs ago but being from a Catholic family it wasn't "real". We always talked about getting married "for real" and would go out ring shopping, we even went to bridal shows and open houses; We just never knew when it would happen. He decided we would get married in Disney after his first trip to WDW back in October. Then one Saturday we bought the ring and 2 days later we took a carriage ride and he gave me the ring, then went to eat at my absolute favorite restaurant (maggianos).

Us at the restaurant:

tons of pictures:

Italy Isola:

Italy Plaza:



**The last few are borrowed from another brides' wedding on here M&M***

These are the 2 i am considering:


this is my new idea for the centerpieces:


Childrens Table: at the childrens party

I made the vase, myself and after many trials I am happy with this one. I created this as a mock, the finished product will be more tailored. I plan on wrapping the sticks with white ribbon and the rice krispies will be provided by Disney. I tried making them myself but it was a disaster the mickey heads were all deformed. there will only be about 5 kids so i am thinking 10 treats is more than enough. Oh and there will be some feathers in there that I bought from white aisle during their moving sale.


Guest book: the platter comes with a signing scribe that has a diamond point. The website says that you can cook and serve with it and it will not get damaged.


Ring Bearer Pillow: Except the ribbon will be a light blue (My son will be the ring bearer)


My Tiffanys Toasting Flutes: (my ultimate splurge, only because I will probably never use these again...since I don't drink)


Groomsmen will get these
:
**HAD TO REMOVE THESE, DON'T WANT MY BROTHER TO SEE**

My M&M's will be packaged like this: (WE WIL BE USING THESE FOR THE BRIDAL SHOWER)


The cake:
this may change only because my mother thinks it should not have cinderella or the castle.


This is the new idea for the cake: except it will be light blue instead of grey, ivory instead of white, with gold scrolls and it will be square


and lastly a mock up of my invitations:
Welcome party :


I want to send these out in boxes wrapped in ribbon I just haven't found the boxes


*These are the new invites, we will layer the inside with blue and white and put a ribbon and buckle.:



Oh I almost forgot these are the announcements we sent:

Camara, everything looks BEAUTIFUL so far! I can't wait to see more pictues of you, your dress, shoes...EVERYTHING! Your ring is beautiful! You two are an adorable couple!

LOL, that is how I met my Fiance' also...he was simi-dating a friend of mine...but just a for a few weeks. We actually tried not to get together (because that dating a friend thing can get stickey), but they ended up tricking us into a triple date. Crazy how things work out!

Thats too funny, my ex was the compete opposite he was completely against us getting together and boy did he make his opinon know. Oh well Sergio eventually cut him off so that was that. I am glad things worked out for you

First off, I love your story. It's so sweet... not the fact that your ex cheated on you but how he approached you... you know what I mean.

It looks like you did quite a bit of your wedding planning already! Congrats! I love the Mickey Mouse rice krispy treat center pieces. May I "borrow" that idea?

Did you already "book" your date? I'm still waiting for that stupid 1 yr. mark before my chosen date to book it.
