Our Love Story

Josh proposed while we were on vacation in Disney World together. We were at the Magic Kingdom and he got down on one knee in front of the castle. Definitely the happiest place on earth for us and the most magical day!

Our Wedding Vision

Since we got engaged in December, our vision was to have a classic Christmas wedding. It’s unique and different and the holiday brings such great memories for us. We wanted our guests to feel the magic of a Christmas wonderland and to start the holiday season off right!

Our Wedding DJ

Our professional wedding DJ, Josh, was great! He picked up on our vision and who we are as a couple. He was open to our song list and perfectly put everything together, with some great recommendations. He kept our reception running smoothly and really helped us have the best night.

Our first dance song was Can You Feel the Love Tonight by Elton John. Disney is a huge part of our love story and The Lion King movie was so special to my husband and his dad. It was the perfect choice for us that we could honor our story and my late father-in-law at the same time.

Our Wedding Photography

Our professional wedding photographer, Vesna, was wonderful! She braved the cold weather in Detroit with us all day and captured our day perfectly. She was friendly, prepared, and professional and really made our day fun and put us at ease. She helped map everything out for us and kept us on time and coordinated the day. We’re so happy we have these pictures to remember our special day!

Our Wedding Video

The day goes by so quickly, we’re so glad we have our wedding video to look back and relive our day. Our professional wedding videographer, Tracy, was so easy to work with. He stuck with us all day and braved the cold winter weather to get the best shots. His humor really helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera!
