Alex and Jon: Vintage Disney Wedding

Did you know, there’s a suite at the top of the Disneyland Hotel called the Adventure Suite? Well, there is! And it’s absolutely the coolest place at the Disneyland Hotel, and taking wedding photos in the Adventure Suite has been on the top of my bucket list for years! Add to the excitement of the Adventure Suite, if you follow Alex on instagram, you’ll quickly see why I was counting down the days to their Vintage Disney Wedding at the Grand Californian Hotel. Alex takes beautiful pictures, and I knew her getting ready photos at the Adventure Land Suite of the Disneyland Hotel would be nothing short of incredible. Alex and Jon are also lovely people and so fun to be around! It was a treat documenting their wedding day, and I’m sad it’s all over!

Alex and Jon are one of those couples that you can tell are just in sync, and it’s easy to see how these two hit it off so quickly. They met at a local comic book convention, and being Cosplay lovers, they were both in costume when they met. They quickly became friends when they realized they both loved Cosplay, Disneyland, and Netflix binges. Their first date was at Disneyland, where they spent the evening watching the fireworks together. That wonderful date became the first of many magical memories together.  It only made sense to propose at the place where their romance began, and so Jon designed a creative surprise proposal at Disneyland during the holidays. Alex and Jon were taking photos in front of the Main Street Christmas tree when Jon asked Alex to grab a present from under the tree. Alex closed her eyes and Jon took out a ring and proposed. When she said yes, her dad and sister came out to congratulate them.

Disneyland became an important place for their relationship milestones, so they knew their wedding would need to be a Disney Wedding. The day they were hitched was really fun, Miss Rockabilly Ruby was doing the hair and makeup, and we took full advantage of the theming in the Adventure Room. I’d been eyeing the vintage bathtub for two years, and I had to pinch myself when I realized I would finally be able to use it for photos with Alex, who looked so beautiful and perfectly styled for the room. Alex made so many of her wedding details herself, I was really impressed with her talent. Take me back to that wonderful day! Or at least, let me look through the photos again for the 50,000 time! Enjoy!

Heather and Valentin: Disneyland Wedding Photos

Haunted Mansion and Sleeping Beauty Castle Wedding Shoot

Last week I featured Heather and Valentin’s beautiful wedding, and this week I wanted to share their Haunted Mansion and Sleeping Beauty Castle Wedding Photos. I live for the photo sessions at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, they are one of the most incredible experiences a photographer could have. And spending the day with Heather and Valentin again was the icing on the cake. They had a wonderful wedding at the Disneyland Hotel, and we often talked about the castle session leading up to it. It didn’t feel real when the time finally came! Our session began before the sun came up, and I asked if we could take a few photos at the Grand before we went into the park. I loved that everyone just went with the idea. I think it’s so beautiful how the trees at the Grand are lit up for Christmas, and it’s usually very crowded in that area and it was nice to take advantage of the empty walkway.

We got into the park just as the sun began to rise. We made some great memories at the castle with the Special Events crew, and they even suggested a few of the poses! The fun thing about Heather and Valentin’s session, was that they had added a few extra areas besides the castle, so we also photographed them at Small World, New Orleans Square, and the Haunted Mansion. It was a busy but fun morning, one of those days that I’ll never forget. I’m sad it’s all over, it was fun looking forward to their wedding and castle session during the year! I hope we get to cross paths soon again, perhaps at one of Heather’s Run Disney races? :)

Enjoy the photos!

Heather and Valentin – Disneyland Hotel Wedding in October

Heather and Valentin had a beautiful Disneyland Hotel Wedding in October. Their ceremony was at the Rose Court Garden of the Disneyland Hotel, with their Wedding Reception at the Trillium Room of the Grand Californian. I first met Heather and Valentin during their rainy day engagement session at Disneyland. Heather was so nervous about the photos because of the rain! Everything turned out beautiful though, and we laughed and smiled throughout the entire morning.

Valentin and Heather met through work, where Valentin is a sous chef and Heather works as a pastry chef. Together, they made the perfect pairing. They had their first date at the movie theaters to see Frozen, and from that point forward, Disney has always been a special part of their relationship. After running the 10k Disney Marathon on Heather’s birthday, Valentin proposed. He brought Heather to the side of the castle by the Princess Fantasy Faire Theater and got down on one knee, and with tears in her eyes, Heather said yes! Heather loves how Valentin takes care of her, makes her laugh, cooks for her, and of course that he loves Disney. Valentin loves that family is so important to Heather. He loves that Heather is kind and always keeps him active, and that she is always determined to accomplish anything. And of course, he loves that she takes him to Disney!

The thing that I love most about Heather and Valentin, is how much they take care of each other. From the engagement session to the wedding day, they were always making sure their other half was having the very best day. Their wedding actually had me crying big tears during their reception. Heather’s father recently passed away, and Valentin surprised her with a slideshow tribute to her father. During the slideshow, Valentin wore a t-shirt with her father’s picture and asked if she would have a father/daughter dance with him in her father’s honor. It was such a thoughtful and beautiful way to honor her father’s memory, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I was so honored to be there, taking photos for such a special couple. I know they are going to have a wonderful life together.
