Got super behind because school started...but now I have a little time to catch up! :thumbsup2

Those Boma pancakes look SO good! I could definitely go for a Disney breakfast right now.

I love New Fantasyland so much. Franklin's photos are stunning.

I love the CM costumes too! They're adorable. I wouldn't be opposed to wearing one...

I have the Belle cup and I love it, but the Beast one is so cute too!

I REALLY want the Chip magic shot! I'm so glad you got one. They are adorable.

Such a cute picture of you two holding hands on the Tomorrowland bridge! I love it.

Aww, Mickey is so adorable! It's awesome how excited the characters got for you two.

Such a wonderful TR, Missy! I'm so happy I found it. I can't wait to hear what happens with the other two..and of course, hear about the wedding and honeymoon! :lovestruc

Wow, what an amazing TR!!! Yours is actually the first one I've ever followed & I just can't get enough. You are the cutest couple ever & your love for Disney is contagious! Your descriptive writing is engaging & of course photography, stunning. That photo of the beast's castle looks like a painting! I truly am inspired in so many ways for our upcoming trip! Thanks or sharing!!!

Wow! Thank you for all the stunning pictures of new Fantasyland. I am beyond excited to check it out next month! Can't wait. So many details to explore!!

Leaving is always depressing (I have been known to cry) but certainly helps to always have a plan for a return.

How sweet of your friends to decorate your house in honor of your engagement. Random but I love your front door - I've always wanted a red door.

Off to catch up on your other reports and really looking forward to hearing all about the wedding and honeymoon. Hoping we can sneak in a little DIS meet while we're both there (I still owe you a message on that).

Thanks, again, for sharing your travels and absolutely gorgeous photos with us!! :goodvibes

    My absolute apologies in getting the wedding photos up. My life has been a swirl of thank-you notes, gift unwrapping and organizing of our house since returning from our honeymoon. These are just a handful of preview photos from the wedding photographers, but I hope you think they were worth the wait!

    Let’s start at the beginning… of the wedding day, of course! I had all my girls gather in my suite for a fun day of champagne, yummy treats and beautification! I made each one a hoodie with a customized Minnie head on the back.





    Me and my dad.



    Franklin and his groomsmen. They totally thought they were the Rat Pack in their tuxes, it was adorable.





    Ain’t he cute?



    During our first look at the hotel.



    On our way to taking pictures at the Lincoln Memorial



    And since the girls were in charge of holding my dress up as we walked, the boys were in charge of the bouquets.



    The extra face was a cut-out of our friend Brian who was supposed to be a groomsman, but had a mandatory event for work that weekend and couldn’t leave Houston. So his lovely wife bought the cutouts so he could still be a part of everything!



    I had custom Minnie ears made for all of us. I had a bridal bow with a veil and my girls all had bows that matched their bridesmaids dresses.





    The ceremony took place on the terrace of the Newseum, overlooking the Capitol.









    We have the greatest friends! You might remember a few from previous TRs. Kristin and Dan went with us in October 2010; Kelley, Mike and their twins in Oct. 2011; and Meghan and Laura in May 2013.



    Toward the end of the night, Franklin and I snuck away with the photographers to take some night time photos. Here we are in the elevator.



    And just outside the museum.



    And out on Pennsylvania Avenue.



    That’s it for the photos we have now. Like I said, there are lots of Disney details from the wedding that I am dying to share with you, but I want to wait until I have photos to show you. So you’ll just have to stay tuned! Until then, on with the Disneymoon TR!
