Trip Report ~ Day 4 (Cake/Champagne Reception)

Day 4 ~ Saturday, September 17, 2011 (Wedding Day! Continued ~ Cake and Champagne Reception)

So after finishing up taking pictures we headed up to the Outlook Lounge for the Cake and Champagne Reception.









The Toast (Side note: I had the cider, it was wonderful)







The Cake











The First Dance





And that is (finally) the last of the wedding photos. I hope you enjoyed...

The only things that went wrong during the reception:

Tom tried to give us the wedding certificate with the wrong date on it. I gave it back discretely and he replaced it later in the evening.

They didn't have the non-alcoholic cider for me ready. But in Tom's defense, I didn't ask for it until the night before so it wasn't on the paperwork, and it was a quick fix.

So a month later, I'm getting back to you (if you are still around). Thanks. My auntie was fine once she got some water and in the AC.

And when I look at my pictures all I see is how happy I look.

Thanks so much. I still love my choice for a wedding.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

General life update/why I haven't been on the boards as much... I won't be back in Disney anytime soon. Brent lost his job in October. He made the decision to go back to school for his mechanic certification and got a job as a waiter in the mean time. I think it was life's way of forcing him on this path, its something he has been thinking about for awhile and this forced it to happen. I look forward to what the future brings for us.

On that note since things have settled down, I'm working on finishing my TR.

It was a great choice for a wedding! It is very hard looking at all of the pictures! It makes me want to do it all over again!! Sounds like you and Brent have it figured out and I am glad he is getting his mechanic certification! Good for him! I am sure you will have a bright future!!

Trip Report ~ Day 4 (Continued, Castaway Cay)

Day 4 ~ Saturday, September 17, 2011 (Wedding Day! Continued ~ Castaway Cay)

There was a whole day after the wedding! Can you believe it?!? There is a trip post-wedding.

We changed and went straight to eat on Castaway Cay. I was sooooo hungry by that point in the day.

Here's some random Castaway Cay pictures that you've probably seen from other folks also.







Brent decided he wanted to go jet-skiing. Being a chicken on this trip, (aka I was tired, my stomach was still in knots from the wedding festivities, and I didn't want to mess up my hair) I didn't want to go.... We went over to the booth to book it for him. And they said it was sold out for the day.

But, a very nice man saw that we had just gotten married and he canceled his ride/tour so Brent could go. I don't know who he was, but thank you. You made Brent's day. The man said he was tired anyways so hopefully it worked out well for him also.

Some more pictures







Off Brent goes. He said it was fun and I would have hated it. So I made the best choice and took a nap on a lounge chair and hung out with my mom.



A couple more pictures...

Trip Report ~ Day 4 (Continued, One Last Night on the Dream)

Day 4 ~ Saturday, September 17, 2011 (One Last Night on the Dream Post-Wedding Evening)

After leaving Castaway Cay my mom and I went to the character blitz.











At dinner they brought us our leftover cake and cake topper.



I asked for a box for the cake topper, but they didn't have one available at dinner. Otherwise I don't remember much about dinner. We did say goodbye to our guests in case we didn't see them after that. This was the last night of the cruise.

In between dinner and showtime I went down to the room. Poor Tom knocks on the door wanting to decorate our bed and looked shocked that we were in the room. Apparently he thought we were at late dinner. He said he would be back later and I asked him for a box for the cake topper.

I went to the show (Believe) which made me cry. More tears. Ugh. If you've seen it you might understand but otherwise I don't want to ruin the show (so stop reading here if you don't want to know) but the scene when the dad sees the girl grown up and finding her prince charming got to me. I think because it was my wedding night.

Anyways....

After the show I go back to the room to meet up with Brent so we can pack to get our suitcases out in the hallway in time for pick up. It was a frantic process. We get another knock on the door (that poor Tom) who was still surprised we were in there. He was really really nice, but not good at details.

At that point, I just let him in to decorate. Here is the before (Note: you can see the edge of the suitcase on the bed and packing going on).



Here is the after.



Brent and I then spent literally the rest of the evening picking out pictures. The pictures weren't ready until about showtime for us to review, because they gave us a printed copy of EVERY picture to look through. We had so many wonderful pictures, we weren't sure which ones we wanted. We got to pick 30 pictures to be printed as 5x7 and 30 8x10.

My mom of course helped us, but it took forever. This part was the worst part of the cruise. It is hard to pick out your favorite photos, and the boat was rocking in the ocean that night. By the time we were done, I felt soooo seasick and exhausted and just wanted to go to bed. So Brent worked things out with our photographer. He said we could pick up the pictures in the morning.

So that was the end of a lovely (overall) wedding day.

You had a great day! The packing was hectic for us too since it was the last night of the cruise and the wedding night. I am glad you got lots of great pictures. Did they give you an album for the pictures or were they just loose and did you have the option for a disk with all of the pictures?? Just wondering...

Great trip report!! Happy 2012!!

Happy 2012!

We picked up the pictures the next day. We received them loose in folders, but were given two photo albums to put them in. Each photo album also came with a storage box. Heavy and awkward to carry but actually really nice to have.

We also go the CD which came in like a DVD case that says Disney Cruise Line on it. We had to pick it all up before we disembarked in the morning. I'll post pictures when I get around to finishing the TR.

Lovely indeed! A DCL wedding looks like a fantastic way to have a great, intimate, wedding and still keep it fun! The fact that you could go to the beach and Brent could go jet-skiing after the wedding is just awesome! I've really enjoyed reading along with your adventure and can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Thanks! And to anyone still around I promise to finish my TR.

I'm on vacation (but at home) this week so maybe I'll get around to it.

Congrats !! Your wedding looked beautiful

I kept reading that you were seasick-- was it that bad. I get so sick on boats and have horrible motion sickness and we are looking into a cc wedding. I'll be so upset if I'm sick the whole time

Thanks.

Yes I did get seasick on the last night but it wasn't trip ruining at all. I took motion sickness remedies and it helped (motion ease, and meclizine). It was just i needed to lay down for a bit after we picked out pictures.
