Hey girls (& guys!!) We're still honeymooning at WDW, but DH (ooh!! thats the first time ive typed 'dear hubby'!!!) is off golfing. I've already been down to DTD to spend his money this morning so I figured I'd start my TR a little early!! I'll start with some reviews and a few pics...ill finish it up after the HM later this week. Don't forget to follow along our LIVE TR here on the DIS...the link is in my siggie. VENDORS Randy Chapman~~ AAA+++ Wow!! What can I say about Randy other than I LOVE him!!! lol He did our engagement photos last year and from day 1 I fell in love with his style and work. The day of the wedding I was a nervous wreck, but the minute Randy walked in the door my pulse immediately began to slow, my heart rate returned to normal, and my nerves were settled. Having Randy there was like having another wedding planner. He has dont all of this so many times he just took over. It was great. I literally said 'here's my dress, here's my jewelry..have fun!' and he started with photos while me and the girls finished getting ready for the ceremony. He was NEVER in the way...during the ceremony DH and I barely knew he was there. His personality was great. He was so patient with my talkative 5 yr old niece/FG, and was even MORE patient when I, the bride, had a few moments of stress/panic/worry. All of our family and friends loved him. I would recommend him over and over and over again. AND..he even arrived a few minutes early to my bridal suite, he said it was so I wouldn't look at the clock 2 minutes after he was supposed to be there and freak out such a doll!!! 'And we're walking' my BP will get that lol Some Randy sneak peeks... Stan w/ STVS ~~ AAA+++ Again...a perfect vendor!!! Stan was there perfectly on time, knew exactly where to be and when to be there. I was always worried the videographer would be in the way or noticable, but Stan was quiet as a mouse. He was so sweet, even got a few hugs from me on the wedding day lol. He went above and beyond with his service. He caught everything we had asked on film, never missed a beat...even as the reception was dwindling and an impromptu conga line was started, Stan was right there to catch it. Every time a spur-of-the-moment thing happened, I could always see Stan just over the rail, or right behind Randy as they both caught the moment for us to see again and again. He had the sneak peek ready at the reception...and had already captured our vows..which had my DH and I in tears all over again (yes..we bawled like babies the whole day lol). We can't wait to see the whole production!! Beaute Speciale~~ AAA+++ If you're debating whether or not to hire these lovely ladies DO IT!! All 4 of my bridesmaids and myself had our hair done with them, and mine & my MOH's makeup. None of us had hair/makeup trials, so we were all kind of nervous. But all I did was show Ana pics of what I wanted and she not only matched it...she IMPROVED it!!! I received countless compliments on my hair and makeup on the wedding day. And it stayed put the WHOLE day!! (even if I DID pull 51 bobby pins out that night lol) My makeup was applied at 9:30am and, even after several tear sessions, a reception, and a 2 hour nap..was still perfect at 12midnight for Jellyrolls!!! Thanks girls!! They even gave my FG a little pixie dust with a quick updo on the spot. Pics of me getting dolled up... My FG's hair... (this was done in a quick sec as a favor fron Ana...thank u SO much!!!!!!) Removing all the bobby pins!! At JR later that night...(I'm on the left, then MIL, and BM/SIL) Marion Stewar & her assistant(s), DFTW~~ AAAAAA+++++++ Our wedding was perfect BECAUSE of this team!! I had so many family members/BP members ask me questions in the weeks leading up to the wedding and I would always say 'Marion has it covered..dont worry'. My planner was amazing. I loved her from day 1 and I would never have asked for a different person. Wow..she was amazing! He whole team was perfect!! If I was thristy, there was water, if my dress/crinnie was bunched, they were under there fixing it! They bustled me, held my train, enetertained my FG...everything. This wedding would not have been what it was if it wasn't for these girls. One of my favorite memories from the wedding day was after my BMs and FG had gone up the aisle, My mom and I were lined up to walk up the aisle, the music had started...but I was frozen. I was so nervous, but I looked over my left shoulder and saw Marion standing in the distance...she had a smile on her face a mile wide. She gave a slight nod of her head and I knew it was time..and I was going to be ok. It sounds so sappy, but its true. I knew in that moment that Marion did not simply look at this as a job, but as an opportunity to make dreams come true. She represents everything magical about Disney.....Thank You Marion!!! Laura Kidd, Disney Floral~~ AAA+++ I spoke very little with Laura, but she still managed to make everything perfect!!!! The ceremony decor was absolutely gorgeous, all of my last minute changes had been taken care of, my purse & the FGs basket were delivered perfectly on time. The centerpieces were everything & more I could have asked for....I had a vision for my wedding and it was as if Laura went into my head and pulled it out herself. Amazing. if you have her...you are in EXCELLENT hands!!!! Disney Catering Staff~~ AAA+++++++++++!!!!! This will be quick...but there is NOTHING I would change about the food at our reception!!!!! It was, in a word, amazing! We have received so many compliments on our menu...the food was every bit Disney-Quality! If you're worried you'll get dry meat and cold sides...dont be. It is a true masterpiece what they pull together. And the cake was gorgeous!! I had been so nervous about if I'd truly like the cake or not....but it was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Disney!!!! Ok...thats it for now...ill start the REAL TR in just a few days!! (Or if I get bored later during the trip lol) We only have 2 more nights left...kind of sad...but we've had a blast here!!!
