Last night our very first episode of Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings TV Show aired on Freeform! (If you missed it you can watch it here!) We are so excited to take you behind the planning of these extraordinary Disney Weddings and hopefully provide inspiration for your wedding day. Every week check-in to the Ever After Blog for a complete recap of the Disney Weddings you see on TV.
First up, Emily and John!
We had so much fun planning Emily and John’s wedding. John has been dreaming of a Disney Wedding since he was a child! When it came to planning, there were a couple of very specific elements that they wanted to include on their special day - their heritage, their love for hockey and Disney. Together, with with the help of their Disney Wedding Planner, Emily and John were able to highlight all three throughout their special day.
The Wedding Ceremony
Emily and John toured multiple venues before deciding on the China Courtyard at Epcot for their ceremony spot. John’s family is from China and hosting their wedding here was a perfect way for the couple to celebrate his culture.
The replica of the “Temple of Heaven” served as a stunning backdrop! Because the space is so grand, we opted to enhance the venue by hanging over 200 floating lanterns in the trees and lining the walkway and aisle with glimmering candles. We chose gold chiavari chairs with red cushions - on every chair we placed rose petals for guests to toss after the ceremony ended. But, one of our favorite decor elements was the red rose petal aisle!
One of the really unique elements of Emily and John’s Disney wedding ceremony was the Chinese Dragon who served as a ring bearer. It was a fun and entertaining element that made their ceremony extra memorable!
