    Our story begins in the strangest of places, American Online chat room. Joseph was about to leave the chat room when the word “Princess” caught his attention. Joseph clicked on my screen name and he was instantly captivated by my beautiful eyes and wonderful smile from that moment on. Soon after, we started to chat for a few hours and exchange phone numbers. The next day, Joseph called me and I rudely answered and said, “I am busy and I will call back when I have time” and I hanged up the phone. For several weeks after that, Joseph continued to persistently call me and I did not answer the phone. Furthermore, In August 1, 2005 my family and I traveled to Orlando Florida and visited MGM Studios. During our stay in the park, Joseph called me while I was watching “Lights, Motors, Action” show. I once again answered the phone rudely and said, “I am at Disney World and I will call you when I get back to Miami” and hanged up the phone. For some odd reason after that conversation, I felt bad. I felt as if I was yelling at a family member. However, it was not until August 26, 2005 I finally had the courage to call Joseph and apologize for the times I ignored him and treated him wrong. We began to talk for hours on end. A few weeks later, Joseph and I met for the first time on September 9, 2005. Our first date was magical. When I walked towards Joseph and saw him for the first time, I was instantly in love. Joseph was the man I had always envision in my life. He is a kind, loving, and intellectual person. Joseph and I do not have many things in common but one thing that we do share is our love for Disney. On August 26, 2010, we traveled to Disney World for my mother’s 51-birthday celebration. Joseph brought along his 70-year-old grandmother who had never been to Disney. Joseph looked at me before walking into the park and said, “This will be the day you will never forget”. Later that afternoon at 2:00 p.m., Joseph had a surprise that would change our life. He made reservations at the Cinderella Royal Table. After taking pictures with Cinderella, we were escorted to the second level to our dining table. After we finish eating, the waiter brought a surprise Birthday cake for my mother. I was in total shock, it was so beautiful. Moments after, the waiter to my left, carried a plate and placed it in front of me, when I glanced down the plate stated “Will You Marry Me My Princess”. I was in total shock. Words could not express how I felt. Joseph walked towards me and kneeled on the ground, with him was holding a tiara. He stated, “Naylise, we have been through so much and on this day I proclaim my love to you in front of your family and complete strangers. From this day forwarded you will forever be my princess, Will you marry me?” I said “I do”, He then placed the ring on my finger and put the tiara on my head and he kissed me. When I looked all around the room, all eyes were on me. Everyone was overjoyed. It was a remarkable moment. From that moment on, we knew we wanted a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding. We made one dream come true, now we want our fairy tale wedding to come true.

    :flower3:Hey to all,

    Thank you for reading and commenting on my posts so far. :thumbsup2

    I would like to share my journey as I contacted Disney's Fairytale Weddings. At first, I can honestly say, I didn't know absolutely nothing about Disney Weddings, neither did I know what I was getting myself into. So I requested the brochure and approx. 2-3 weeks later, I received it by mail. Soon after a wedding consultant contacted me by phone and welcomed me to the Disney Fairytale Weddings. I was really happy at first. My consultant was Bill Barchik. He asked me questions regarding my vision and budget. Although I wasn't sure of anything, I told him I would send him what I thought would be an ideal Disney wedding for me.

    For months I was speaking with him, back and fourth (Advice: Bother the consultant, all you want).....:surfweb::banana::confused3:worship::happytv::cool1::dance3:

    Well about 7 months into the conversations, I became inpatient after not hearing from Bill for months on end. Everytime I called the office he was either out or in a meeting. So I waited patiently, and still no response.

    Frustrated, I called Disney Fairytale Wedding to ask for a switch. They said they were going to put in the request. About 4 days after, Bill called me to ask me "Why was I trying to change"...I of course was shocked he ask, and I again could not say "because..." so I continued receiving emails from him.

    As the months past, I became familiar with many Disney Brides on facebook and through conversations they would mention how Bill was horrible, Bill this, Bill that!!! on and on....I was like, "Maybe they had a bad experience, but hey let me try it out".....well finally, I had enough of it.

    So months past and I didn't hear anything from Bill again, I was fed up and I could not take it no more. This past thursday I contacted Disney's Fairytale Wedding and I said I wanted a female consultant. Without hesitation they told me a new consultant will call me in 3 to 4 business day. I felt relief. Today around mid day, I received the call and it was Diane Mahoney, a very pleasant and very well known consultant for Disney. I felt relief....I just hope I never have t go through what I went through, it was a nightmare. Beware B.Barchik......pirate: I am so sorry to say....But this is what Disboards are for....Making a Disney Wedding Planning Process go by smoother and better without any stress.

    Hi from a Facebook friend! :flower3:

    I love all your plans so far and your engagement was so special. I think that inside Cinderella's Castle is such a special place.

    I look forward to seeing more!

    Btw, love all of your drawn pictures. I wish I was talented enough to do that. :goodvibes

    Hello from another one of your new FB friends... and congratulations on your romantic engagement and your upcoming DFTW!

    Regarding the change with your sales consultant... good for you! My only regret was not asking for a new planner. I kept telling myself that it would get better, but it never did. Thankfully, I loved how everything turned out, but I still have to constantly force myself to quit thinking about the "if onlys..." I don't want that to happen to you :)
