Tara and Yusuf - A Chic Fairytale Wedding

Ever wonder what a fairytale wedding looks like? Tara and Yusuf brought the magic of Disney to life on their special day. The couple fell head-over-glass-slippers for each other while working at Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort, inspiring a fun Disney twist on a their chic, modern wedding. Everything from the stationery to the sweets received the Midas touch of gold to compliment the black, blush and ivory color scheme.  Guests kept cool with ornate fan-style programs during the outdoor Tea Garden ceremony. The bride and groom partook in a “first touch,” wherein they held hands for a quick moment together before they saw each other for the first time at the ceremony.  An interactive seating chart asked guests to match Disney song lyrics to corresponding Disney couples to find their assigned tables. The pink roses and black-eyed anemones added softness to the modern black candelabras and glossy onyx vases. Sequin touches on the linens made a statement from the sweetheart table to the cake table. Personalized touches were seen everywhere, from the bride and groom signature cocktails, to the Disney lyric cocktail napkins, to the ‘hidden mickey’ shaped butter on the tables!  It was all about the details!!  Guests were serenaded by a string quartet playing Disney songs during dinner, before the DJ pulled everyone on the dance floor for hours of partying.  Then when this sweet celebration drew to an end, guests nibbled on assorted cake pops before grabbing bottles of Starbucks frappucino and boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts on their way back to their rooms!
