Real Weddings: Courtney and Calvin

Today's featured real wedding took place at the happiest place on earth: Disneyland! Courtney and Calvin tied the knot at the Parkview Terrace in the Grand Californian Hotel followed by a reception in Disney's Animation Building.

Obviously, Courtney's favorite part of planning was her visits to Disneyland to work with their wedding department in creating their dream wedding.

Courtney's bridesmaids all picked a different style from the Alfred Sung line in Daffodil and Majestic. As always, we can't say enough how easy and fun it is to mix and match colors and styles for your own unique bridal party look.

"The bridesmaid dresses were a HUGE hit and everyone loved how well the colors complimented each other. Thank you so much for helping us with the dresses!"

Since most of their guests had to travel to California for the wedding, Courtney and Calvin wanted to make it a special experience and surprised them with a ride on The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure.

"While the guests were walking through the park to what they thought would be the reception area, the Disney cast members leading them took a different turn. At the time, Calvin and I were taking our pictures with our photographers and couldn’t see our guests, but all of a sudden we heard this loud roar of cheering and clapping. Calvin and I looked at each other and smiled because we could hear how excited they all were to be able to hop on a ride!"

Two very special guests were also in attendance... Mickey and Minnie Mouse! They came to help cut the cake, boogied on the dance floor, and posed for pictures. They brought smiles to everyone's faces, young and old!

Courtney's favorite moment was taking pictures inside Disney’s California Adventure after the ceremony. Disney holds a very special place in their hearts and they felt like they were in our own little world walking in the park after hours.
