If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!
I guess Rainy Days are definitely a "turn on"!

Pictures at the Grand Floridian

On the stairs, we posed for a few formal portraits with the girls and with my family.





The girls loved this shot!





Pictures with my parents <3







You can see my mom's bouquet and my dad's boutonniere here. They are actually recreations of what their wedding floral looked like. My dad's is lily of the valley and a white rose; my mom's is a much smaller nosegay version of her bouquet with lily of the valley, white roses and white fuji mums.

With my niece!







My uncle and aunt/godmother















Then it was time for all of us to go outside to meet up with my transportation!

So we walked from the main building to the beach area. It was getting close!!





My girls are so beautiful, although squinting a little in the Florida sunshine!





Look how windy it was! My veil kept going crazy!!



More crazy veil pictures! I wish I would have known it was that bad!







Looking at the Wedding Pavilion!



Here's my ride!!

I chose the Landau coach. I absolutely love it! I always thought it looked so royal (even before William and Kate lol) and I love that it is convertible!





Time to get in!





I just imagine how many times I looked out the windows of the Grand Floridian at the gorgeous grounds, as a child, as a 19 year old WDWCP Cast Member and later on, on trips with my boyfriend/fiance. Now, I am in my horse-drawn coach on the way to the Wedding Pavilion to get married.

I was so happy my father was here to share my special day with me! It means so much to me!







Pulling up to the Wedding Pavilion!

You have some gorgeous pictures - I love the hands on hips pose with the flowergirls and the ones with them peeping through the window - utter magic k:

And I don't think I've ever seen a happier more smiley bride, you are glowing with happiness and excitement and look radiant.

Best wishes

Thank you so much! When Disney has been such a huge part of your childhood and your life, it is amazing to actually be able to get married there!

Hello again, dear! Thanks for the compliments for my little princesses! To me, the kids just make the wedding!

That is such a great compliment. I really could not stop smiling. I know sometimes it isn't the most flattering look on my face, but I still love seeing it, because I know how happy I was. I truly could not stop smiling for anything!! All the people I love the most were in the place I love the most as I married my best friend! How could I keep from smiling? lol

Oh my goodness, such BEAUTIFUL pictures!

Your makeup looks ah-mazing. Especially your eye makeup! Are you wearing a light eye shadow with liquid eyeliner? I'd love to do my eye makeup like this

Lesha!!!! So happy you found me here!! Thank you, thank you! Actually, I asked Ana for the details on my eye makeup and I use those colors almost daily!

I am wearing:

MAC eyeshadows in Nylon (lid and highlight) Patina (in crease and outer v) and Wedge (to blend out Patina). She also used Honeylust on the lower eyelid but I skip that step when I do it. She used Almay liquid eyeliner in brown on me. It is the best for contact lens wearers because it does not flake and does not irritate my eyes. Definitely colors that look great on everyone.

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !
DLRP is quite simply my spiritual home

lol I think your smile is very flattering and makes you look so beautiful and happy in your photos

I love what you said about being with the people you love the most, in the place you love the most and marrying your best friend - that is what all weddings should be

Hoping you are always as happy as you obviously were on your wedding day

Best wishes

Thank you!! I love my dad! You never feel the wind quite like when you are wearing a cathedral length veil. I felt like a sailboat! lol

At the Wedding Pavilion



I managed to get out of the coach and immediately Michelle greeted us. It was time!



Michelle talked to us and walked with us across the beautiful bridge to the Wedding Pavilion. It seemed like just yesterday that I was here for my planning session, seeing this amazing sight in person for the first time and meeting Michelle. I just couldn't believe this was the day already!

Michelle made us both feel quite at ease and I thought everything was going perfectly.







They escorted us into the Bride's Vestibule



Rachel put on my garter



We got a picture of my sixpence as well.



My girls made sure to block my view of anything going on outside the room!

I snapped a quick picture of myself to send to a few friends before I walked down the aisle!



The little ones LOVED the mirror in the Brides' Vestibule!



So cute!



Well, guests were arriving and my ushers were handing out programs.









The groomsmen were ready and waiting!



Everything was ready! It was time!
