    Hello! I am off to a really late start with my PJ, I only discovered these addicting boards about a week ago. DF and I have almost exactly two months until the big day.. so I'll do my best to catch up.

    We met:
    About two years ago.. we were both working at the same job, which we both didn't like. There was absolutely no immediate attraction with me, all I wanted as to stay single, and all he wanted was a relationship. I guess i'm not much of a fighter because it wasn't long until we had started dating.. which surprised everyone, including myself! A few months later we both quit that job.. and stayed together! He is the 100% opposite of what I thought my type was.

    The engagement:
    DF got a new job that required him to constantly travel for two months at a time. The first time he left was when we really knew we were in love. The second time he left, he was sent to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii! I was completely jealous.. until I found out the company would fly me out to see him for free!! Mom tagged along to ensure we wouldn't partake in "sinly activities" but we were having an amazing time. Our next to last day was our only day alone, so we decided to go in a shark cage and snorkel. (Amesome experience BTW) After that we ended up at some deserted beach on North Shore, we were just walking and WHAM I turn around and he was holding a Tiffany box, down on his knee! I fell in the sand, but it was sooo amazing. I don't have any pics of the engagement, we were all alone.. but these were from the same day.:dance3:

    This was on top of the Diamond Head Volcano. Don't mind my deformed arm.. that was a long walk!

    This was us at a Luau a few hours after the proposal.

    Growing up, I had always wanted a Disney Wedding, but I never thought we could afford it. I was always the little girl glued to the monorail window as we passed the pavilion, and if Cindys coach was outside.. I know I hurt a few peoples ears!
    My family's big on Disney, my first trip I was only 5 weeks old.. so seems perfect to do a Disney Wedding.
    DF is 26 and before he met me, didn't even know Disney did weddings.. but being the nice guy that he is, he went along with it.. plus my parents are taking the bill..
    We started planning in November of last year.. and are almost done with the planning, so I will do my best to catch up.

    The wedding date is August 7th. At 5:00p.m.
    The ceremony is at the Wedding pavilion.
    The reception is at the WhiteHall Room and Patio at the GF.
    And the dessert party is at Sago Cay Pointe at the GF.
    Here is the View from SCP:

    Yea, I have been in between SCP and the marina for a few months now. Ken said there were only a few differences. SCP gives you much more privacy, and is closer to the castle. The marina has better lighting, but you really don't want a ton of lights for the firworks. He also said that we would have a better chance of hearing the wishes music at SCP than at the marina, esp. with all the guests who will be gathered around Gasparillas.

    Your dress is so beautiful and I LOVE your bridesmaid dresses & color combinations! Congratulations on having it all ironed out. You must be getting so excited! :banana:

    I had a question about your DP at SCP. When we watched WISHES from there in May we couldn't hear the music at all. Are you having it piped in?

    No, we are trying to cut down our budget, and when I talked to Ken he said it wasnt worth it. I would have liked to, but most people at our wedding won't miss it, because they have never been to Disney before. He also mentioned that we may be able to hear it from MK, but only if the winds blowing right and blah blah.. hopefully we get some sound, but I don't think i'll notice. Did you miss it at your DP? IS it worth the money?

    Our DP is in January, but after going to the location with a small group of friends in early May to check it out, we all unanimously agreed that Howard and I are including the WISHES soundtrack in the budget. Many of our guests will never have seen WISHES before and we want them to hear the beautiful compilation of narration and music. I know many other brides have opted not to have the sound piped in, and their guests really enjoyed the event even without sound.
