Charise and Jordan first met when they were just 14 years old and after many life milestones from college, moves, promotions, layoffs and everything in between, the two decided to get married. Jordan dragged (a very tired, post-work) Charise on a hike to the top of a nearby mountain overlooking the city. At the very top, he dropped to one knee and she burst out in tears and accepted. A group of geologists happened to be nearby and one even proclaimed, "That's a big rock, and I know rocks!"
Even before the engagement, they knew they wanted a Disney's Fairy Tale Wedding. It wasn't a matter of "if" more than it was a matter of "when". They had originally planned on a celebration at Walt Disney World, but as often happens, life got in the way. They realized they wanted a more intimate wedding and discovered Disney Cruise Line Weddings. It was everything they were looking for. They chose a ceremony at the Outlook Lounge on the Disney Dream close to their favorite holiday- Christmas! Charise described it as "simple, joyful, and sincere". The couple's favorite part was during their Cake and Champagne Celebration after the ceremony when they were able to dance together and reflect on their 10 year journey.
