I have spent the past month or two researching and reading through everyone's trip reports, planning journals, etc... I decided that I wouldn't join in until I was officially engaged. WELL.... It's been two days now!!!!!! First let me get into a little bit of our background before I start hounding ya'll with my questions! Me: Born and raised in South Carolina, moved to LA to work in television. This is where I met my fiance. Stephen: Born and raised in LA- always wanted to move to the south! How we met: I was working on a pilot TV show for ABC and needed to do a tape pick up. Stephen works in film and I happened to walk into his store that day. I didn't deal with him because he works in a separate area, but he saw me that day. (He said we shared a moment- I remember him because he was wearing a bright lime green shirt!) So anyways, he didn't get up the courage enough to speak to me so instead he asked one of his co-workers who I was. They told him and he took this info to the internet. He found me on Myspace, of course, but he decided he had to email me after he found out I was not only from SC but my hero was Walt Disney. Fast Forward 16 months later (2 days ago): IN DISNEY WORLD Stephen and I finally got to take our first trip to DW together. 9/4 is our 16 month anniversary so we planned to have a romantic dinner at California Grill at the Contemporary. After Hollywood Studios that day we decided to take a walk on the Boardwalk. As we are walking from the Beach Club to the Boardwalk we walk past Sea Breeze Point. There were 4 people standing there and one of them was holding a guitar. Stephen suggested we go listen to them play something. I didn't understand why we would go up there but finally he pulled me up to the gazebo because he wanted to look at the view. All of a sudden, the four people behind us break out into song. Not just any song. Our Song! The started singing "Everything" by Michael Buble At that point I realized what was happening and Stephen asked me to dance with him. At the end of the song, he proposed. To top it all off, I called my mom to tell her the news only to find out that she had been watching from the lighthouse at the YC. NEXT SURPRISE: Stephen had already made an appt. with Disney Weddings for the next morning! So, yesterday I went to my first Disney Weddings meeting Now my questions start Wedding Info Wedding will be in a church Reception at Disney- AAR or YC- Not decided yet 150 to 200 people will be attending My first question for you!!! We love the AAR but the only thing that is holding us back is having to get the photographer and videographer from Disney. After reading yalls planning journals I know who you like and dislike. Do I have to get assigned these people or is it not possible to get people like Randy Chapman, Roots or Misty to do my pictures??? The same question also goes for the videographers. At the meeting at DW they told me it had to be Disney people if its at AAR, but I swear I've seen pictures from yall using different people!!! I need your help! AND I am sooooo excited to finally get to officially join yall!!!
