1. Special moment of your day? We rented the Cinderella coach for transportation to and from the wedding ceremony. I rode with my dad on the way to the Wedding Pavilion, and we got to have a moment to soak in the beautiful day and talk about the events that were about to unfold. After the ceremony, I rode back to the reception hall with my now husband, a sigh of relief that the pre-wedding nerves were gone and knowing how fun the rest of the evening would be.


2. Favorite Moment of Day? During the cocktail hour, my now husband and I were taken into the reception room to see all of the decorations in place before anyone else was let in. It was a quiet moment to take in everything and see the beauty of all the lights, flowers, and food. Seeing everything that we had planned for the past two years come together was breathtaking.


3. Best memory of the day? We had a few little surprises for our guests throughout the evening. Since we had such a small guest list, we were able to invite each married couple up to have another first dance to their wedding song. Afterwards, when it was time to cut the cake, we had the classic Disney couple come in -- Mickey and Minnie! Throughout the whole night, my dad and I kept whispering to each other how eager we were for this surprise. When Mickey and Minnie finally arrived, our siblings shared that they had to hold in their screams of excitement! We then got to take turns having our pictures taken and dancing with them.


4. Wedding Theme - Color Colors: Burgundy and Gold Theme: Mix between Christmas magic and Beauty and the Beast inspired


5. Why did you choose the dress you picked? After trying on a lot of different looks and styles, this dress finally made me feel like a bride. It's classic and made me feel like a princess.


6. A few sentences about your wedding? The wedding itself was a fairytale, absolutely amazing. What I had envisioned and planned with the Disney team not only came to life, but it was even better! They took care of every aspect so we didn't have to worry about a thing. I am so thankful to everyone who could be there to make it so special and memorable.



7. How did you and your groom meet? We worked and went to school together


8. How did your groom propose? We made plans to see the Christmas Lights in Ocean City. On the way, he took a little detour, where he showed me a video he made of our relationship together and then got down on one knee.

9. Advice to a bride planning her wedding. Keep in mind what the true meaning of your wedding day is. During the planning process and the wedding day, there will be a lot of unexpected twists and turns and your vision might have to change. If you focus on what is important and why you are getting married, your day will be perfect no matter what!


10. What favorite part/thing/experience about shopping with Serendipity? The store itself is beautiful and elegant. There are so many small details they include that make you feel important and taken care of. You are brought into a big dressing room, complete with a personal sign and a cute robe. You get to pick from all of the beautiful gowns that they have available. Once you have chosen the dress, you get to celebrate with a little bottle of champagne!
