Hello~ I just have to say I stumbled across this when I searched for something (it was so many hours ago I can't even remember what that was). In the last 4 hours I've read your amazing story. I honestly laughed and cried. i feel like I was there through the whole thing. I feel like I know you and scott personally. I wish you both a life time of happiness together! Now i am off to put to bed my 4 year old and 7 month old who both fell asleep on me hours ago while I was reading.
~Beth~

P.S
you have an amazing family!

Amazing

I was surfing around & came across your post. All I can say is it took me over an hour to read everything & I laughed & cried & feel like I know you two by now. I pray your lives are blessed with happiness, health, wealth & all the goodness this world has to offer.

I hope to one day plan my daughter's wedding at Disney.

Thank you for sharing a very special part of your lives

I love you guys. I've never met you, but after reading about your wedding I feel like I do.

I was so impressed with your wedding photographer, Randy Chapman, that I hired him for a family portrait session during our last vacation.

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I wish you much health and happiness in your marriage.

Thank you!

I've been feeling particularly nostalgic today. It was exactly seven years ago today that I met Scott at a GayDay.com mixer at 8-trax. I didn't realize that I'd met Prince Charming that night.

The next day, as we sat across the table from each other at breakfast. THEN I knew!

It's June 4th. "Happily Ever After" started 7 years ago today!

As usual, Scott and I will be celebrating our anniversary at Gay Days at Walt Disney World. We met during Gay Days 2003.

I can't think of a better way to celebrate, or a better person to be spending my life with.

Another year on, and I'm still the luckiest man on the planet!

First: I'm so happy for you both!! Your story is so amazing, I'm trying really hard to cry right now! Second: So. Totally. Jealous. of you both, lol. I want a Disney Wedding so bad, I can taste the castle cake now!

But in all seriousness, I wish you both the absolute best of luck for the future. You guys are so lucky to have found such happiness and to have committed your lives to each other in such a breathtaking location and ceremony.

An hour? It took me about three weekends. This is the thread that pulled me into these boards in the first place.

Just got done skimming the 142 pages! Reading the planning and seeing the photos was awesome! I remember all those little details (especially the cake tasting!).

I love your rings; I had a titanium engagement ring which I love!

I also enjoyed reading the comments from your mom.

PS Will be at Gay Days tomorrow and back at Disney in a couple weeks to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! Can't wait!

Correction: I'm trying really hard to NOT cry right now...oops!! When emotions get involved, my ability to create clear sentences goes out the window apparently!

Thanks! I heartily recommend having a Disney Wedding. The DFTW team will take SUCH great care of you! It was totally worth it for us!

It took you three weekends to read it? It took me MONTHS to write it!

Congrats on your wedding. If you'll be at Gay Day you should come by the Dole Whip meet at 4pm and meet a bunch of us!

So I am very late to this party & just missed saying happy 7th anniversary to you, but I have spent the better part of the the last day & a half reading your delightful story & just had to say thank you for sharing. I have written a few trip reports myself & it's no easy task, but such a great way to relive our special trips.

You & Scott are very lucky to have found each other & also lucky to have had your special BIG FAT GAY DISNEY WEDDING!!!!!! I loved all the details & your photos are stunning.

I only got to go to the Adventurer's Club a few times & it was years ago. My DH of almost 7 years & I always planned to go on one of our Disney trips but somehow didn't thinking it would always be there to enjoy like some many others have said. Well, we waited too long & I am so sad my DH never got to experience the fun & frivolity that the AC was. We went through PI on our way to the Characters in Flight balloon in October & it was so sad to see it all so lifeless & just sitting there unused. This is how I felt about it!!!!!

But, I carry the AC with me a little bit because whenever we start out on an adventure I start singing "marching along we're adventurers....." & my DH loves it!!!!!

And.........I'm rambling............thanks again Rob for sharing your story with us & I hope you & Scott have many, many years of fabulous adventures together ahead of you.

Word is that it won't be sitting there lifeless and unused for much longer. It's slated for demolition. The interior has already been stripped bare. The wrecking ball should be there soon.

It was like somebody punched me in the stomach when I saw the pictures of the club without the artifacts on the walls. I don't even want to think how it's going to feel when the building comes down.
