Here at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings we’ve been extra busy gearing up for June, which is always one of our busiest months of the year. And I have to admit that all of this June weddings hustle and bustle has given me a case of summer fever! As luck would have it, Kris and Jeff’s big day is just what the doctor ordered and comes chalk-full of the best summer has to offer – beaches, sunshine and of course flip-flops.

This dynamic duo met while working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but when it came time to tie the knot, Kris and Jeff packed their bags for a different kind of adventure – a Disney’s Vero Beach Resort adventure, that is! The couple chose to infuse Vero’s seaside feel into every aspect of their wedding and paid extra special attention to detail. From the darling cupcake display (with a cake topper made by the bride herself) to the shoe check, this event was truly a coastline lover’s paradise.

A Jungle-Grade Wedding Cake at Walt Disney World Resort

The Jungle Cruise Wedding Cake at Walt Disney World Resort

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the cake. It brings people together, makes for great photos and is a chance for couples to express their personalities. Newlyweds Lisa and Steven did just that. The duo met on the Disney College Program while Steven was a skipper at Jungle Cruise, so when it was time to say “I do” Lisa worked with our bakery team to design a cake after the attraction itself.

posted on February 14th, 2012 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


At Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings we celebrate love 365 days a year. So I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a very special love story with an unsuspecting princess. Cinderella’s Royal Ponies have the important job of transporting brides to their happily-ever-afters everyday – and sometimes they even have a love story of their own to share…

Remember to always believe. Happy Valentine’s Day!

A Holiday Wedding at Disney Parks

Our couples are always up for a good theme – especially around the holidays. What I love most about Disney Parks at Christmas time is that you can actually save on your wedding budget by utilizing the existing holiday décor.

Jeff & Becky chose to embrace the colors, smells and look of the season for their recent nuptials. Anything but ordinary, this creative event spared no attention to detail. From the gourmet cupcakes inside gingerbread houses to the elf place cards, everything carried out their theme to holiday perfection.

Whether you are celebrating the season with family or friends, all the best to you and yours for a healthy and happy holiday!

A Halloween Wedding at Walt Disney World

Happy Halloween, ghouls and boys! I love the holidays and especially love when our couples get into the festivities. Today, we have a very special wedding happening at Walt Disney World- a wedding inspired by Halloween itself. Adam & Wendy wanted their family and friends to have as much fun as possible at their wedding- they are traveling far and wide to attend after all. So they encouraged guests (and Cast Members) to don their favorite costume for the All Hallows’ Eve nuptials. Till death do us part…

A Super Sweet 16 at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion

posted on August 11th, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Sixteen years ago the first permanent wedding destination at Walt Disney World Resort was built. Disney’s Wedding Pavilion would quickly grow to become a crown jewel and one of our most popular ceremony locations. To commemorate this special milestone, we recently installed striking stained glass windows etched with our signature Cinderella’s Coach.
