Talking Dani & Lor @ Home NY Disney Wedding and Disneymoon 7/3/12 updated ring/invites

Index

Reception Hall
Save The Date
My Wedding Dress
My Wedding Invites
My Mickey Engagement Ring

I have been a long time reader on this board and poster on other topics... but now that we finally picked our date I decided to create a journal

Our Story:

In June 2007 Loreen (my future wife) wrote me a myspace message. I of course looked at her myspace and decided to write her back! Little did I know then that, that decision would change my life forever! We spoke on myspace messenger for a few hours and decided to exchange numbers. We were up all night talking on the phone and decided to meet in person! We met on June 12, 2007 and it was love at first sight! Little did we know then that we would last this long lol

Proposal

In May 2008 I brought Loreen to Disney World. This was her first time going! We made it a long trip and went for 3 weeks! The first week my mother was with us and the last 2 weeks we were alone. It was by far the best Disney Vacation I have ever been on. To see Disney through her eyes was so magical, I fell in love with her all over again. On our last day there we always end with the Magic Kingdom. It was May 31, 2008 and it was a sunny hot day. She said that she wanted to take pictures by the castle. I found someone in main street, but she said she wanted to get closer to the castle. I had no idea what was going on but went along with it. We found a photographer right in front of Mickey and Walt statue. She went over to the photographer to give him the photo pass card! This is when she whispered in her ear but I didn't notice lol. The photographer did a few "normal" shots of us. He then told us to do a "pose" this is when Loreen proposed to me in front of the castle. It was always my dream and she made it come true!


This was before our "pose" lol

Danielle & Loreen At Home Disney Lesbian Wedding 7/3/2012... reception hall update

Before I explain our reception hall I'll give a little feedback on us

Me- I am a full time student for my second masters in Early Childhood eduction Birth-2nd grade. I am also a full time preschool teacher in a day care center. My first masters is in Clinical Art Therapy but there is no jobs so I went back to school...

My Future Wife Loreen- is on workmens comp and SSI. She got into a bad car accident in 2002 which resulted in her needing a knee replacement. She got one in 2009 but she got a bad staph infection which resulted in 3 years of nightmares for us. long story short she is still battling this knee and most likely going to need it fused. So our engagement pictures of her kneeling on the ground are that much more special! Hopefully soon she can go back to work.

Our Reception Hall

So after looking around at about 10 places we went back and picked the 2nd one we looked at. We are totally on a budget and this would have not been our choice if money was not an option. However since my father is not willing to help. But we found a great deal here in Long Island, NY where everything is over the top expensive!!!!

It is Called Mediterranean Manor.

Here is the cocktail room:

In an atrium of glass, 30 foot ceilings with classic, opulent decor, your guests will enjoy 100% seating while dining and mingling with their friends and family.

Upon passing the 30 foot luxurious curtain of the grand lobby into the delightfully welcoming cocktail atrium, your guests will rave about the chef's multi-national cooking stations, the selections of award winning chafing dishes and Hors' Doeuvres, and who will ever forget the amazing "cruise ship" style cold display carvings and ice






Ceremony: is on site at the reception hall



Our Reception Room:







It's far from Disney.... but I like it!

Well, aren't you two the cutest thing ever! And I like your proposal story--- because it's pretty much the same as mine! So I might be a little biased.

Also, I think your ceremony/reception space is VERY pretty! When you said that it wouldn't have been your choice because of budget, I was pretty sure you were about to have pictures of, like, a shack--- but it's SO nice!!! I'm sure you will make it look awesome.

I can't wait to hear more!
