Adventure is out there!
This famous line in Pixar's UP, has folded itself into the public conscience in such a way that it now has become shorthand for finding your true love and the future you hope to have with them. This beautiful concept has been woven into many adorable weddings, however, this might be the very first proposal we have seen with this particular theme.
Barney wanted to make sure Ellen's favorite movie (UP) was represented fully when he popped the question, but that wasn't all. Keep scrolling to see what other pop culture reference he snuck into this fabulous moment! Oh and stick around to see all the photos captured by Ditto Dianto in our full gallery, AND check out all the UP themed weddings we've featured below too!
We found this perfect, quaint gazebo in Burlingame, CA and knew it was exactly what we wanted for the proposal venue. Hundreds of oversized balloons, vintage rentals, and a custom Adventure Book all decorated the space to honor the UP Theme.
Then Barney bought a guitar and learned how to play the “Friends” Theme Song, her favorite tv show. After the couple looked through their Adventure Book, complete with photos from their travels, “Friends” quotes, and words of affirmation from Barney to Ellen, he grabbed his guitar and surprised her with the special song.
After she said yes, her parents and best friend came out of hiding and surprised Ellen with her dog too! During the whole event, we had a wonderful pianist playing the “UP” Theme Song and cueing tears from all the on-lookers!
For 11 years Disney's Pixer Up has been inspiring weddings and engagements on The Wedding Chicks. Travel back in time with us to see how this inspiring movie has touched so many.
