Sheldon and Lauren were married this past week on the 10th deck of the Disney Wonder while docked in Cabo San Lucas. To say that their wedding was beautiful, would be an unmitigated understatement. They brought on the most beautiful floral arrangements and decor, and while it might have been a difficult on-boarding, I think you’ll agree that all of their efforts were 110% worth it.
Not only was their wedding beautiful, the vows moving, and the parties (yes, more than one!) VERY fun… these two also brought along a close selection of their family and friends who took every opportunity to shower them with love and affection. It was such an honor to witness this week unfold and even more of an honor to have been so included in all the activities and fun these families had planned.
I could never thank Sheldon and Lauren enough for the opportunity to photograph this amazing week and will forever hold these memories dear to my heart. I came in a stranger but left feeling like family and while I feel tenderness toward all of my Bride and Groom’s, these two became instant friends and I look forward to watching their lives unfold as I’m certain that there could be books filled with the adventures that they will experience.
And last but not least, I couldn’t finish this blog post out without mentioning the not one, not two, not even FIVE but NINE characters that Sheldon and Lauren had at their wedding reception. As a fellow character lover, I SO appreciated the effort that went into getting all these characters in one location and had the BEST time getting to pose Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale, and MAX in a plethora of poses and had to pinch myself several times as I heard myself say, ‘okay Goofy, can you move closer to Pluto now’ and other various directions to some of my favorite characters on the planet.
A dream, friends, a literal dream. Thank you forever Sheldon and Lauren — I wish you both every single happiness in this world, you both deserve it!
