{Real Wedding Story} A Disney dream wedding | Timaira & Dennis

BRIDE & GROOM: Timaira Magnaye & Dennis Garcia

WEDDING DATE: March 2nd, 2019

LOCATION: Disney Dream Cruise Ship

PHOTOGRAPHY: Jess Collins Photography (jesscollinsphotos.com) Kitchener, ON “Once we decided on having a Disney Fairy Tale Weddings (DFTW), I did endless amounts of research. I ended up joining a Disney Cruise Weddings group and that’s where I found Jess. She is one of the preferred vendors in this group. We loved her work and felt comfortable knowing she loves Disney as much as we do and that she’s photographed previous Disney Weddings. Her photo package had exactly what we were looking for plus extras!” – T

# GUESTS: 37

BUDGET: $15,000-$20,000

THEME: “We wanted our wedding colours to match the overall “theme” of having a cruise wedding. We chose navy blue for its more nautical aspect and chose the light gray to brighten up our theme and contrast well with the ship’s colours. Our inspiration for our “cruise wedding” came from not wanting a traditional wedding but more to feel like an extended vacation. So we combined both wedding and vacation into one. We didn’t want a one-day event and we love Disney and Disney Cruises so we felt this was the best of both worlds.” – T

HAIR: Chanel from The Chick Behind the Chair (instagram.com/thechickbehindthechair) Kitchener, ON “Our package with Jess actually included hair and make-up by the talented Chanel” – T

FAVOURS: Antique Mickey Mouse Skeleton key bottle opener from Amazon, as well as custom tumblers from Party Innovations (partyinnovations.com).

DETAILS: “Unlike traditional weddings, our choices were planned based on options from packages from Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings. There was wiggle room for customization but we were limited and some requests for customization were based on availability. We upgraded our package to include: the bridal bouquet and boutonnières, our ceremony in the Atrium of the Disney Dream, and a nautical-themed cake. We also opted to upgrade our reception by extending it by an hour. During our two hour reception, we had Disney Cruise Line and DFTW cater our event, and an onboard dj play music. The original wedding package only included cake and champagne but we upgraded and ordered a variety of hors d’oeuvres, a dessert bar, and open bar.” – T

BEST MEMORY: “My best memory was walking down the grand staircase of The Atrium to meet my husband. It was my princess moment. As for our best memory of our wedding, it was having all the people closest to us witness us finally getting married. After 11 years, this was a big deal for us and our families. Our wedding was the first wedding for both our families. Just being able to spend time with our family and friends during the entire weekend was such a blessing and joy for us.”  – T
