Mardi Gras Roundup: New Orleans Square

Happy Fat Tuesday, my friends! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a roundup of Disney Wedding photos in New Orleans Square. I love New Orleans Square, and truly believe it’s one of the most romantic places in the park. There’s so much attention to detail! From the beads hanging from the balconies, to the sounds coming from the windows, it really is a magical place! I love that it has a few secrets too, with it’s hidden entrance to Club 33 and the entrance to the Dream Suite. It adds just another touch to the mystery and charm of this hidden corner in the park. It’s such a treat when couples add New Orleans to their castle session, I always know it’s going to be a stunning morning, with the sun rising just above the Rivers of America- adding a warm glow to those beautiful trees in New Orleans. I mean, how can you go wrong? Enjoy! And when you’re done, check out last year’s Fat Tuesday post! :)

Andris and Sarah: Woman’s Club of Orange Wedding

Andris and Sarah were married on a cool and cloudy California day in November, with their wedding at the Woman’s Club of Orange County. When I saw an e-mail from Andris appear in my inbox, I couldn’t have been happier. Andris is one of those friends who I’ve seemed to cross paths with at least once every decade. We went to high school together, both worked at Disneyland, and now I can say that I’ve photographed his wedding! It was kind of like attending a high school/college reunion, and it was wonderful catching up with so many familiar faces. But most of all, it was heartwarming to see how happy Andris and Sarah are together.

Sarah and Andris met working at Disneyland. Sarah was in need of a roommate, and a mutual friend suggested Andris. They became fast friends, and it didn’t take long for their feelings to grow. Andris was meticulous with the wedding details, just as he has always been. Sarah was calm and relaxed, and took the time to enjoy every second of her wedding day. They were completely devoted to each other, and I loved to see how much joy they found in each others puns, jokes, and conversations. I got a little teary when Andris saw Sarah for the first time during their first look. They both had tears in their eyes and both of their hands were shaking. There were so many feels wrapped into one beautiful moment. In addition to the first look, there were so many special moments throughout the wedding. We took photos with the DeLorean, walked over to an ice cream parlor, and they even had a few wedding party members who had travelled from Shanghai Disney where Andris and Sarah worked for a while. They came all this way to see them tie the knot!

Thank you so much for having me as your photographer, Andris and Sarah! Hopefully we’ll see each other again, sooner than a decade this time! :)

Rachael and Jake : Vintage and Romantic Grand Californian Wedding

Rachael and Jake’s Vintage and Romantic Grand Californian Wedding, made my creative heart sing. Their beautiful fall wedding ceremony was located at the Parkview Terrace of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, with their reception in the Trillium Room of the Grand. Their rich and earthy wedding colors enhanced the craftsman motif at the Grand Californian, and I was simply obsessed with Rachael’s vintage wedding gown. Every detail was beautiful, from beginning to end.

It was touching to see the love that Rachael and Jake shared. Wedding days can be a little hectic at times, but when Rachael and Jake were together, they were unshakable. You could see how much they loved each other, just by watching them for a moment or two. Before the reception began, we took Rachael and Jake to see the Reception Room. As a side note, the Disney wedding team always loves it when the Bride and Groom walk into the Reception Room, it’s a special moment for everyone. DJ Jason Jass turned on one of Rachael and Jake’s favorite songs, and they shared a dance together in the empty room. It was a sweet moment, watching them dance. I could hear Jake and Rachael talking and laughing, and towards the end of the song, Rachael turned to Jake and said that this was the best part of her wedding so far, having a private moment to share a dance with him. Their wedding entourage was also a lot of fun! I had to smile when everyone was dancing and Rachael told me she needed to feed the fire of the dance floor, and proceeded to dance the night away with Jake and her friends. It was a beautiful night, all around.

Thank you again for having me, Rachael and Jake! May the years to come be filled with as much joy as your wedding day! :)
