Smile Lisa and Geoff's Castaway Cay DCL Dream Wedding PJ&TR 11-12-11

Hi! My name is Lisa. I have been procrastinating doing a planning journal but finally decided that I would give it a try. I loved reading all of the other PJs. I also noticed that today is 1 year, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day until our wedding so I better get busy! Here goes...

This is us!


Here is some background...

My name is Lisa and I am 41 years old and have never been married. I was convinced that I would never have to "settle" for someone and when I met Geoff, I knew I wouldn't! I am an elementary school principal and LOVE my job. I started as a teacher and have been an administrator for the past 8 years, just completing my first as principal. My life just seems to be "falling into place" just the way I had hoped.

My fiance's name is Geoff. He is 33 years old and also has never been married. I guess he was looking for me! LOL He is a Manager at Pier 1 Imports and is the love of my life. He has a heart of gold and truly makes me a better person. He has a wonderful sense of humor and I love being with him everyday!

We met in November of 2000 and have been together for 7 years.

We got engaged on June 6, 2010.

We got engaged on June 6, 2010...



This is my ring. It is very sentimental to me as the center stone belonged to my maternal grandmother. She and my grandfather were married over 50 years when my grandfather died. I think the stone has great energy and means alot. We also have our wedding bands already!







I actually started wedding planning for Disney's Vero Beach. Geoff and I have been on vacation there and just love it. I got in touch with the wedding contact at DVBR and started looking at packages and stuff. I wanted 11-11-11 which is a Friday night. Unfortunately, they do not book or pencil anyone in before the year mark. We started talking about what we wanted and the most important thing for us was to have our immediate family there and do what WE wanted and not what everyone else wanted us to do.

We looked at doing a Disney Cruise Wedding but Geoff didn't think his parents would be too excited. We mentioned the idea to them and they were so excited. We decided to do a Disney cruise on the Disney Dream and the ball started rolling...

Our plan then was to have just family on the ship and then have a reception when we came back. I found a great venue and started looking at all I needed to do...it was like planning for 2 weddings! Ugghh!! I will tell you, running a school all day and then trying to plan a wedding reception was just too much! We then decided to invite all of our closest friends and families on the cruise. OH WHAT FUN WE WILL HAVE!!

I love your ring especially since I luv pink. How wonderful that the center stone belonged to your grandmother. That makes it all the more special.

Thank you! We did have a date we wanted, but we had to postpone the wedding, we both got laid off from our jobs and were both working just part time for now to have something coming in with the unemployment , and to pay for health insurance. But we try to look on the positive side, so we don't go nuts

As soon as Geoff and I decided that we would get married on Castaway Cay, I called to try and see what was available and when I would be able to book it. I called on June 28, 2010 and Shanda called me back the next day and told me she could hold it for me until I made my cruise reservation. I booked a cruise at that moment and called her back and she booked the wedding! It was WAY easier than I thought it would be. I could not believe she called me back as quickly as she did. I started looking for invitations/Save the Dates.

I looked EVERYWHERE and couldn't find exactly what I wanted. I decided to make them and had several prototypes to choose from. This is the one I liked the best. Geoff and I had been on a Disney cruise in May, 2009 and took lots of pictures. I used a picture of CC from our balcony and a picture of a drink Geoff ordered when we got back to the ship and were sitting on deck. It was called a "Buried Treasure" and was delicious!



As of today, we have 13 staterooms booked and many more that are in the process of booking. I am sure we will all have a great time.
