Hana & Michael ~ Disney World ~ Wedding Pavilion ~ Destination Wedding ~ florida

Remember these two? Here’re some highlights from their lighthearted destination wedding. Hana sourced several of her wedding day details from Etsy (happy-happy-joy-joy!) and made the rest. Isn’t she divinely lovely? Please see end of the post for all the wedding source links.

From the Bride:
What inspired you in planning the wedding?

Growing up as a tomboy, I did not really have a dream wedding or a dream wedding dress I envisioned of having when I grew up. I did not know planning a wedding would be such a huge project and I’m so glad I had an awesome wedding planner to help me sort out all the crazy details. Wedding blogs, Pinterest, and Etsy were the main sources of my inspiration as I sampled out mainly rustic and natural elements I liked here and there and somehow tied them altogether.

What were your favorite moments, traditions, surprises during the day?
First look. When we had our first peek of each other right before the ceremony, I remember that was the moment to gather my thoughts on our wedding day. Everything was in slow motion. It really hit me then that it was all really happening. After that, everything else happened so fast!

Dancing. Our DJ really had a high energy and he got everyone to dance. He broke down all the famous dance moves like Thriller into easy steps and everyone enjoyed learning how to dance like a pro!

Favorite Blogs or Magazines used in planning the wedding:

Ruffled Wedding Blog, Pinterest, & Etsy.

What mood/ambiance did you want to convey to your guests at the wedding?
Rustic, Shabby, Chic, Eclectic & Eco-Friendly. We wanted a happy, relaxed atmosphere where our friends from all over can enjoy getting to know one another. We did not want to limit to a specific color blocks but incorporate as many fresh feminine floral colors as we could, such as bright coral, yellow, ivory, and mint green.

Advice that you’d give to other Brides? Advice for grooms?
Find out what is most important to you and budget accordingly. We wanted our guests to be stuffed and be merry and enjoy our cute wedding favors. We saved A LOT of money on the decor and floral arrangement by using talented Etsy vendors so that we can spend most of our budget on food, open bar, and cute wedding favors.

Thanks goes out to?
God, Family, Friends, & Everyone who helped our wedding day be so magical and memorable.
