Matt and Melissa | Disney Themed Wedding at the Disneyland Resort
On June 17th, Matt and Melissa said their vows to each other and started the new chapter in their lives together as husband and wife.
They had a beautiful Disney themed wedding at the Disneyland Resort in Southern California where they were surrounded by the people who meant the most to them.
Matt and Melissa chose not to do a first look together prior to the wedding ceremony and when Melissa walked down the aisle of the Rose Court Garden on her dads arm to Matt, he had tears and a look of pure love in his eyes!
During their beautiful wedding ceremony that Melissa’s cousin officiated, Matt not only said his vows to Melissa, but he also said his vows to Melissa’s daughter, Savannah! Promising to love her as his own and to always take care of her. To remind her of his promise to her, he gave her a beautiful gold ring for her to wear!
After their beautiful wedding ceremony at the Rose Court Garden, they had their reception at the Sleeping Beauty Pavilion inside of the Disneyland Resort.
Matt and Melissa, being huge Disney nerds, dedicated each of the tables inside of the wedding reception to each of the lands in Disney, the escort cards were embedded chocolate Disney cast member tags, and their wedding cake resembled the beautiful Cinderella Castle! It was simply MAGICAL!
During their Disney themed wedding reception they shared their first dance together as husband and wife, shared toasts with their guests, enjoyed dancing with everyone, presented Melissa’s parents with beautiful thought out gifts, said a special thank you to all of those who served and their families, and got a laugh from smashing cake in each others faces!
After their reception, Matt and Melissa snuck out with us to take some time to savor the moment together and for us to capture their beautiful bride and groom photos!
I’m so thankful that Matt and Melissa invited me to be a part of their wedding day and I’m SO happy for them to be able to share their lives together as husband and wife now!!!
