From the couple who pulled off the breathtaking Tangled photoshoot comes a Disney fairy tale wedding celebration.
Sarah and Gilbert met at UC Berkley and after four years of friendship, the two finally "saw the light" (Tangled, anyone?) and began dating. Seven years later, Gil proposed to Sarah with an "Adventure Book," a nod to their first date when they watched Up together. Thus, it was only natural for the couple to celebrate their obsession with Disney in the most Disney-way possible.
"We were inspired to have a Fairy-Tale Wedding at Disneyland because we wanted to share the magic and wonder we feel when we're at the parks with our closest friends and family," Gilbert told Popsugar. "Sarah's always been my princess, and I wanted us to have a wedding that truly makes her feel like one."
Though the couple couldn't afford their dream venue at the Animation Building at California Adventure, Disney Fairy Tale Weddings stepped in to make their big day as magical as possible by handling every last detail, from florals and décor to food and drink.
"I am not a ballroom bride, so I couldn't imagine having our guests at any of the rooms," Sarah said. "My heart was still set on the Animation Building, but after telling DFTW that I wanted to 'bring the outdoors inside,' they made it happen."
The couple and DFTW settled on the Rose Court Garden in Anaheim, which the company transformed into a real-life Cinderella story—complete with a pumpkin-esque carriage for the bride's arrival, surprising all of her guests. White Rabbit Photo Boutique caught the entire day on camera, and the result was some incredibly breathtaking photographs.
"All of our guests were excited to attend our wedding at Disneyland, but they had no idea what we had up our sleeves!" Sarah said. "The entire day was so under wraps that even our bridal party didn't know what was going to happen! Everyone was constantly on their toes, not knowing what to expect next."
The reception had its own set of surprises as well. At the reception, guests were provided personalized Fastpasses for Disneyland rides, light up wristbands, and a visit from Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Oh, and did we mention they rented out all of Toy Story Mania at Disneyland for their guests to enjoy?
"Seeing her came with the realization that I would be spending the rest of my life with a real-life princess," Gilbert said. "I was overwhelmed with emotion and couldn't handle myself. Nothing else in the world mattered in that moment."
Sounds pretty romantic to us.
