Thanking you for following along with me. Some of the photos in the rotunda were my favorite at our wedding too. It is such a dramatic backdrop for pictures. I hope to get the ceremony up by early next week. I had this post all done in another program and it crashed, so I had to start over again which took a lot of time otherwise I might have made it through part of the ceremony alreadyI was so excited to see you updated! Your photos are amazing! The pics in the rotunda taken from the balcony were my favorites. Looking forward to the ceremony update
I absolutely love your vow renewal!!! First of all, you are so very very lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful people to celebrate your special day! I always enjoy vow renewal photos because the couple always looks so incredibly happy and relaxed...I think it's because the nervousness of making a huge change in your life is not there and it's so it's just an awesome celebration of the life you've already created together...no jitters...that definitely comes across in your stunning pictures! I love that your husband is also beaming with happiness! So sweet! I so wanted a Disney vow renewal myself, but instead we will do one here in our home state, so I'm living vicariously through yours! Can't wait to read more!! I'm looking forward to food pics too!!
Thank you so much for following along with our journey. I have my next segment of the report complete I just need to add in all the photos before posting. Hopefully I will get it up this weekend. It was definitely a lot less stressful this time around. Besides normal wedding stress, right before our wedding we had a lot of things happen (father-in-law passed away 3 months beforehand, I had a major car accident and was off work for over 2 months to name a few) so it was so nice to have all the stress and things removed this time around.
We had people travel from six other states besides our home state of Michigan which made having a destination vow renewal an easy choice. I'm sure if they would've all lived by us it would've been a harder sell - although who doesn't love an excuse to go to Disney
I would love to hear your plans for your vow renewal. Do you have a date and place set yet or are you still in the early stages of planning?
Thank you so much for coming to check out my trip report and for listening to the podcast. It was so much fun being a guest with Carrie. I'll have to check out your TR this weekend. I love the idea for Aulani. They were building the resort when we honeymooned in Hawaii and haven't been back yet. My husband has to take credit for the Morrissey choice. His groomsmen walked into Suedehead at our wedding too My next installment is coming up in just a few minutes.Just heard your podcast episode and am now following along! I wasn't around the DIS yet in 2008, but started lurking the DFTW PJs in 2013, then finally started my own wedding PJ in 2015 when I FINALLY got engaged We got married in 2016 and definitely would love to do a 10-year VR either at Aulani (where we honeymooned) or on DCL (where we got engaged). I LOVE that you used a Morrisey song as your entrance music!
I was so touched and surprised that we had so many people who wanted to return. It was touching that so many of them wanted to return and were able to make the trip. The food was definitely one of the main highlights for the day. They did a great job with all the items and I especially liked how they did the special request crepes for us from the restaurant at home. I loved how our theme went through everything including the food. When we first got married we knew we wanted to have a vow renewal, but weren't sure when it would happen. The only advice I have is that when you have the means and the time to do it, take the plunge and do it - you definitely won't regret itI love that all of your bridal party and flower girl were able to make it! So fun you had almost all the same people 10 years later! It is so neat to see your flower girl all grown up! Your food looks amazing! I love that you had food from all over the WS, what a great idea! This is making me very much want to do a VR in 10 years, but of course that all depends on where life takes us.
