Amanda and Carlos began their journey together all the way back in high school! After being introduced to each other by a good friend at the age of 15, it didn’t take long for these two to fall in love. With twelve years of friendship and love, Amanda was lucky enough to “marry her best friend.”
Ever since she was a little girl, Amanda had dreamed of a fairy tale proposal and wedding at Walt Disney World, but never knew it would become her reality. On a trip with friends to the Magic Kingdom Park, Carlos had the idea to have their caricatures done. He went first, then it was her turn. After the artist was done, she got up to take a look, only to find a picture of Carlos on one knee with a ring box, and herself drawn with an empty word cloud. The artist said to turn around, and when she did, Carlos was down on one knee with a beautiful ring! She said, “yes”, and now the picture hangs in their home.
Disney had become a special part of the couples love story, and they wanted their "happiest day to be spent where dreams come true." With family and friends gathered, Amanda and Carlos began their new life together at Disney's Wedding Pavilion and continued the celebration with a beautiful reception at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Ballroom. Making their wedding day "perfection and everything they could have hoped and dreamed of."
The couple's fairy tale week didn’t end here, instead they decided to do something “memorable and fun” in their wedding attire. Check out our blog post about Amanda and Carlos’ trash the dress portrait session at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.
