Gina and Tim's buffalo wedding and 2 week disneymoon 6/15 day 5 and 6



Hey everyone. I started a PJ for my at home (disney themed) wedding, but had to stop posting in it. I really want to be able to share our wedding and honeymoon with everyone here on the Dis, so I am starting this now (even though the wedding isn't happening for another 8 days). Let's start with who we are:

Me, Gina, 25


DF, Tim, 25


here are a couple pics of us together

at a bills game


my hallmark moment


getting engaged at POTC (story in another post)


I will leave with that. (Tim wants to go watch Seinfeld and go to bed... it has become our night time ritual...he is trying to get me Seinfeld smart so I can play the Seinfeld scene it game a little better lol)

Tomorrow (hopefully) I will post the how we met and the engagement story. And some details about our wedding. I am going to try to get as much in as I can before we leave Saturday for Buffalo (where the wedding is, we live in TN now). Once I leave I probably won't be on much, if at all... and it will be July 14 before I can update again.

PS...how do I change the thread title as I update?

How We Met

Well, while I am waiting for this to be moved to the right area of the boards I will tell the story of how we met..

I had just transferred to a college back home and since I wasn't dorming, wanted to meet new people. I decided to pledge a sorority. The day we got pinned, the guys from the brother frat and their pledges were in the student union with all the girls. We were told who the pledges were and they said "That's Tim, the one who goes home with Kat after the bar." Ok that was the end of getting to know him, since she was one of the sisters.

Skip forward a few days, the frat and sor were having lunch together in the union. Saw Tim, we said hi, that was it.

A few days later we went to a party at one of the brothers' houses. Hoping to see Tim there, but didn't.

I decided shortly after to depledge because I ended up having a lot of personal stuff to deal with and couldn't devote my time to it. Never saw Tim again.

(4 months later) A friend of mine from work made me make a myspace page so I was clicking through people that went to my school and came across Tim's page. I knew he looked familiar but couldn't figure out why. We messaged each other a couple times and he ended up figuring out how we knew each other. (He ended up depledging from the frat a few days before I did) We talked on the phone for hours the next day and decided to meet up at a concert downtown that Thursday. I went with my friend and met up with him and his friends. At the end of the night he invited me to a party his friend was having back home (2 hours from me) that Saturday. I got a friend of mine to go with me and stayed overnight at the cottage with a bunch of people. Tim was leaving the next day to go to Florida for the summer to stay with his brothers. We decided that night to just be together and wait out the summer.

Well he decided to come home a month early and we have been together since. He ended up moving in with my family a year later because his mom moved to Kentucky and he didn't get a dorm room fast enough and was put on a waiting list. He has been living with us ever since. And unfortunately we are going to beliving with my parents a few months (2 hopefully) after the wedding because we are building a house... so those updates will be in here at some point as well.

Here is a pic of us from the day he came home from FL at Niagara Falls.

Gosh that was so short. I hope I don't seem rude. We are going nuts here. A little insight to what is going on here in Memphis... tried my dress on today and IT DIDN'T FIT. Apparantly the birth control finally caught up to me and I am retaining water RIGHT BEFORE MY WEDDING. So, $100 and 4 hours later, my dress fits. We are trying to pack the truck up with ALL the wedding stuff so we can leave at like 4am.. it's not fitting.

I will try to post our engagement story before I leave.

I really hope this gets moved to the right board so people will read it.

the proposal

Well…I am going to post our engagement story now, since I am leaving bright and early to head to Buffalo. This story has a few extra people involved so let me introduce them (without pics though, sorry). There is Jackie and Mike (two of my friends, though not Jackie anymore, sadly) who came with Tim and I to Disney and then my friend Zack who works at Disney. OK….
We planned a week trip to Disney for my graduation celebration, during the year of a million dreams. My friend Zack told me he entered me into a contest and that I had to be in the MK on June 28. I said ok cool. Never told me what I could win, it was to be a surprise. Awesome… so we are at MK and JUST got our food and FINALLY found a table when Zack called and said hey G, you gotta be behind the castle in like 20 minutes… I freaked out because we hadn’t even sat down yet. So we rushed to eat our food and my friend Mike (both friends knew what was going on), got worried he wasn’t gonna be able to eat fast enough. (I later found out he literally forgot what was going on and Jackie was about to start eating the food off his tray just to get it finished.) We finished and went behind the castle. So here I was looking for some CM in a dream team get up… NO ONE to be found. So Tim convinced me to walk around and look for someone. So we got to the wishing well and found Pixie Dust Express Mail for me

Well the note told me to stand on the star behind the castle and spin 3 times with my eyes closed (and maybe make a wish, I don’t remember and the note is packed to go home for the wedding reception). So after much talk about how foolish I was going to feel, I did it.

After that the instructions were to go to the Spanish fountains at POTC without water, but with plants instead. For some reason, everyone thought it was a great idea for me to lead the way (I can’t read a map and get lost going in a circle). Well for a good 20-30 minutes I got us lost trying to find it. Tim was getting phone calls and had to keep being secretive. When we FINALLY got to POTC we couldn’t find the right fountain… there are quite a few of them there. Tim got a phone call and he told me it was Zack and he told him where I needed to go. It ended up being off to the side (I’m sorry I can’t remember details… but it was to the right of the line) and kind of hidden away. I was expecting to see Tim’s family members there because his aunt was trying to find a way to bring her kids down to stay while we were there but told us she couldn’t, so I thought maybe that was my surprise. When we got there, there was a treasure chest and pixie dust on top of it with a note. The note said to have someone sprinkle it in my hair, which Tim did.

Then I could open the treasure chest. Inside there was a note that said “Gina, you are my treasure. Will you marry me? Love, Tim” When I looked up he was on one knee…

We went on POTC after, but I don’t remember a single thing about it…
Here is the pic of it all when we got back to the room that night…


And here is a picture of my ring (he changed it after we got engaged so if it looks different in that pic above and this one, that is why)


Well…I am heading to bed. We leave bright and early for Buffalo (me and my mom only, Tim and dad are flying in Wed night). Thursday is rehearsal and dinner and Saturday (27th) is the big day. Exactly 2 years from the day this engagement happened (we got engaged on the 28th but there was a leap year so we actually have 2 full years ) We leave the 29th for Disney and won’t be back until midnight on the 13th of July. So I will be gone until then.
