Magical Proposal & Glamorous Wedding
From the Bride: After Michael proposed at Walt Disney World, I knew I wanted to be a princess on my wedding day. After settling on a New Year's Eve wedding we new it had to be glamorous, but still unique to us.
I love old Hollywood so I went for a red lip with gold accents, but always envisioned myself as a bohemian bride, so I had braids and rosebuds in my hair. We added in some New Orleans flair with a second line band while we paraded to our reception venue.
Classy Wedding Wheels
One of the highlights of the day was renting the classic car that came with the chauffeur. Even though the venue was a mile and a half from the hotel, riding in style made me feel like a classic movie star and it was perfect for our exit at the reception.
Our outstanding planner, Melissa Bailey, had already packed us a basket of goodies and gathered all our cards in the car, so when we got back to the hotel we were finally able to enjoy all the food and desserts from the reception!
