Hello!

You’ve stumbled across Disney Roots as we’re using it to test a new blog theme for our Root Photography blog. Things will probably look messy and unfinished for the next week or two. Sorry!

Natalie and Adam hail from the UK, got engaged in Paris, and chose Walt Disney World as their wedding location. :) They were married on one of the warmest days I can remember photographing, and even though their guests weren’t used to the extreme heat, everyone stayed in good spirits and were so happy to be a part of the day. It was clear how much these two are loved and adored, and we were honored to be a part of their day!

We met Natalie at the Yacht Club where she was getting ready.

Maybe my all time favorite bridesmaid bouquets; who knew carnations packed so tightly could look like this?!

That tie- Are you kidding me?! Adam should be given a trophy for conquering that!

We love when Kathryn Flocken of Paper Portraits is on hand to make some magic. (You can check out her Etsy site here!) Kathryn’s work is amazing, and she cuts two silhouettes of each each guest- One for them to take home for a favor, and one to go in a guest book for them to sign. :)

I will never, ever forget October 28, 2013: The day Nate and I finally photographed a same-sex ceremony. :)

From their very first email with us, we knew Wade and Bryce were going to be amazing to work with. We always looked forward to Wade emails throughout the planning process. When we told him we generally eat when the guests eat, Wade jokingly replied, “I guess that nixes the photo of Aunt Kathy chompin’ down on her French Toast. Darn. Back to the drawing board for the Thank You cards.” We always ask if there are any unique family situations to be aware of, and his response? “On a drama scale of 1 (Care Bears)  to 10 (Game of Thrones), we’d anticipate a 3-5, which I suppose would be any sitcom in syndication.”

As much as I love first looks, there’s nothing like couples getting ready together. I loved when Nate and I were both doing our hair at the same time on our wedding morning. Oh, and Jeffrey putting in Lisa’s lashes a few hours before the ceremony? Priceless. This one of Wade and Bryce working on final touches before heading out is one of my favorite getting ready photos to date! :)

They gave us plenty of time for portraits before the ceremony, and we had fun shooting around the world. :)

This was our first ceremony in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion, and I was in love with everything about it- The soft light that time of day, the colors, but most especially the cuckoo clock that went off mid-ceremony. <3

If your maid-of-honor is going to bring a giant Stitch as a wedding date, we will kindly request he gets thrown through the air for a bridal party photo. :D

Favorite set up of Boardwalk Inn’s Atlantic Dance Hall ever. Wade surprised Bryce with the mouse ear favors as a wedding gift- Don’t they look amazing?!

Time to revisit another past wedding! :) Tara and Matt were married at the Boardwalk Inn’s Sea Breeze Point on a rainy August afternoon. Their reception just around the lake at The Attic provided the perfect breezy retreat overlooking Crescent Lake, their ceremony gazebo, and Spaceship Earth! From Tara’s Mickey necklace to their ceremony petal exit to “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow,” this wedding was full of simple, happy nods to their love of Disney. :)

To hear more about their wedding day and see more photos telling their story, you can read posts from the first time I blogged these guys :
