I'm very excited to finally begin my planning journal. I'm new to all this and have no idea how to post pics or anything! So until someone volunteers to help me out (pretty please!) I'll just explain how a Disney Wedding came to be! I'll start of by how I met my DF. When I was in high school my friends and I would go to the local pizza place after softball practice. We knew how cute the cooks were and as silly high school kids we were hoping to catch their attention. Well, Dustin was a cook there at the time and we met eyes one day and that was it... Seriously. lol. We have been inseperable ever since. That was in 2002 and now we have a three year old son and one and half year old twins (a boy and girl). We're a bit unconventional having kids first, but we were just taking our time in deciding when and where to tie the knot. Since we had already had our kids and knew that it was just a matter of timing before we got married I don't really have an engagement story. It kinda happened like this... Me: How would you like to get married in Disney World? Dustin: Sounds fun? Can I choose where and what we get to eat for the reception? Me: Absolutely. Dustin: Well then, I guess we're getting married at Disney World. Me: Yup. So that's my engagement story. We're not very mushy lovey people, so it worked out great. No engagement ring, just a promise ring from freshman year of college, but there are hints of one coming! YAY! Anyway, this was about a month ago that we decided Disney it was! I, by the way never thought of having my wedding any other place. It was always going to be at my favorite place on earth! So, I called to ask about availability for December, 2008 because I loved Florida weather at that time of year and I've never been to Disney during the holidays. After going back and forth on dates with Brie (she's great ) from Disney weddings, we decided on Decemeber 1, 2008 at 5pm at Sea Breeze Point. We're having an escape wedding and coordinating our own reception at Shula's at the Disney Swan. We wanted to make sure there was no transportation involved, just our feet and I think it works out perfectly. Yesterday I made our hotel reservations at the Beach Club for the first two nights and then our honeymoon (sounds silly saying that after having kids)will be at the Wilderness Lodge. Kids are going to Grandparents for the days following the wedding, so Dustin and I can really just have fun without strollers and naps! Love our kids, couldn't picture life without them, but Mommy and Dadyy need a vacay! And that's where I am now, awaiting my contract! I've been looking at dresses and all the other goodies that come along with planning a wedding, so when I learn how to post pics... I will! I want to add that I enjoy EVERYONE's trip/planning journals and want you all to know how much great advice I've recieved and how much this had made my planning just a bit easier. You all are great! Looking forward to posting more soon!
