We're baaccck! I know, I'm a bad bride- it's been far too long since I've updated my PJ.
Our wedding and honeymoon (DCL) were downright perfect. Seriously. I also got a teaching job and a puppy.
I wanted to share our picture sneak peek, our video trailer, and our vendor reviews:
Rev. Tim Herring: A
Tim wound up stepping in for Rev. Jack who was ultimately unable to officiate our wedding. I was a little worried but Tim did a wonderful job; he was nice, confident, and I have no regrets! My one issue with him was that right after our ceremony he pulled Max and I aside and inquired about his payment. Because of the last minute switch, he had not been paid. I found it incredibly rude to ask immediately after the ceremony and truly believe that he could’ve taken the issue up with my wedding planner, Diana as to not pester my husband and I right after we exchanged vows.
Diana S. with Just Marry!: A+++++++
Diana is a goddess. She is so sweet, so helpful, and makes you feel like you’re the only bride she is working with. She is smart, resourceful, and has good ideas—not to mention great communication! Honestly, if you’re able, ask for Diana for your S/D wedding.
It’s Tasty Too: A+
Delicious, gorgeous, affordable! Our cake was perfect. Heather is a true artist and took our really poorly explained vision and made it into a masterpiece. Everyone loved the cake. My one issue: emailing wasn’t so great towards the end but at the end of the day, It’s Tasty Too is who you should use for you cake.
Garden Grove: A+
Such an awesome venue! We worked with Simone who was so sweet and accommodating. They did everything we asked (preferential seating near the tree, cake set up, placing of favors, etc). We took up practically the entire upper part of the restaurant and it felt like we had our own private reception. In addition, we reaped the benefit of having characters at our reception without having to pay for them. Goofy was even “helping us” cut the cake! My one issue: the man who cut my cake BUTCHERED it and cut huge pieces. AND, he had an attitude about it. Seriously though, the perfect place for a S/D reception!
Greenery Productions: A
Okay, did you see my flowers? No description necessary. They did everything I asked and made my wedding look absolutely stunning. My one problem: they forgot my aisle runner. At the end of the day, it wasn’t missed but they don’t get a + because of this reason. Don’t forget something on a contract….
Beaute Speciale: A++++
Amazing. Right on time, professional, fun, and incredibly talented.
I honestly don’t even know the name of our violinist. We asked for traditional music for everything except our recessional which was to be “Married Life” from the UP soundtrack. I honestly didn’t even hear the music. Max, however, said his rendition of Married Life wasn’t so great which is why he is getting a B.
PD Weddings: A+
Paul is a very nice man who has a real talent! Our trailer was truly amazing and made me feel like a gorgeous movie star, lol. I’m serious. He is affordable and honestly, I feel he is a better choice than any Orlando videographer out there.
Poirier Wedding Photography: A++++++
Stacey and Brandon are downright incredible. They are our photographers from home and the some of the most talented artists in the profession. They’re great with communication, professional, and churn out absolutely stunning photographs. They are about 2.5 hours south of WDW but travel. I recommend them for all and every Disney wedding!
I can’t remember if I’m forgetting anyone else “big”. Honestly, our wedding was perfect. Please feel free to ask questions!

That was kinda rude of rev Tim to ask bout payment. he could'v picked a much more appropriate time or have spoken to ur planner like u said!
i'l def b asking for diana from justmarry so fingers crossed an yet another great review for beaute speciale def goin wi them
also now seriously considering garden grove now! we'r not havin as many people as u (just 12-15 of us) so its not a reception so much as a meal on our wedding evening. we'r doin our cake at the ceremony so wouldn need to do that at the meal or anythin. is it just pluto an goofy that come around or do they change the characters??? i never considered having a buffet type meal but do now! also cant wait to see if u hav any reception photos from garden grove i'v never been there
Life is not the amounts of breathes you take,
but the moments that take your breath away!
