Fondant, frosting and floral – oh my! Cakes set the precedent for a wedding reception and are a chance for couples to express their personality, carry out a theme or even surprise and delight their guests. One of my favorite things about working for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings is that we have some of the most talented pastry chefs in the world right at our fingertips, and we can offer couples the chance to make their every cake fantasy come to life. From groom’s cakes to cupcakes, our Bakery has you (and your stomach) covered.
So without further ado, I’ve tried my best to narrow down all the magnificent artistry I’ve seen over the years into my top ten favorites. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
Most grooms know it’s all about the bride, but we’re seeing more and more men wanting a little piece of the spotlight on their big day too- rightfully so! Grooms want a voice so they still look (and feel) like themselves when saying “I do”.
Right now we’re seeing a lot of our guys choosing to forgo proper tuxes altogether and, instead, gift custom suits to their groomsmen. Since each suit is unique to the individual, groomsmen feel included in the big day and walk away with a practical gift they’ll wear again and again. Suspenders, geeky glasses and sneakers are still very in and a fun way to infuse personality without compromising a formal look.
Remember: whether you’re sporting a bright bow tie or fun boutonniere, it’s important you feel like yourself when walking down the aisle. After all, it’s your day too.
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.
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.

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!
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!
Our couples have always loved sequential number dates – it all started with 01-01-01 and has grown to become a large part of the weddings industry for the past 10 years. In fact we are already holding space for 12-12-12, the last date in the series.
As fate would have it, we have exactly 11 couples starting their happily-ever-after today at Walt Disney World Resort. To give you an idea of the work that goes into making these events go off without a hitch, we stopped by the Disney Florist to get a shot of all the floral going into these 11 celebrations.
So without further ado, meet our 11 lucky couples!
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…
The Makaloa Garden was completely transformed into a stylish and elegant wedding venue complete with a draped floral wedding arch, dazzling chandeliers and chic furnishings. We even sprinkled in a little Disney magic with custom made Mickey-shaped pink pillows and flower petals forming the shape of Mickey’s head carefully placed down the aisle. Mickey and Minnie themselves even joined in on the enchanting celebration sporting their Hawaiian wedding attire.
One thing is for sure – Aulani had me saying “ahh-loha”!
Ever wonder what it takes to pull off a seamless wedding event at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort? If so, have I got a treat for you! We worked with Disney Fine Art Videography to capture an entire ceremony, from setup to cleanup, and then sped it up to make everything unfold before your eyes in under one minute flat.
Don’t forget to leave me a comment below to let me know what you think of the video! And as always, to stay up-to-date with everything happily-ever-after connect with us on Facebook.
