harborside chapel wedding: sarah + eric

10/12/18

They believe in fairytales. They have faith in dreams coming true and happily ever afters, because their’s is a world where true love conquers all. And on a day that buzzed with the kind of magic found in their favorite stories, they began the next chapter of their very own. In a room drenched in sunlight they spoke the words that bound their forevers and ran out the doors through a tunnel of streamers that very well could have been pixie dust. Because their’s is a Disney kind of love . . . .

Sarah and Eric are married! We couldn’t have asked for a better day to start off our fall wedding season, because not only are these two just the sweetest but our Disney loving hearts were also obsessed with so many of their amazing details! Character silhouettes accented the lanterns that lined their aisle, and Lumiere even made an appearance on their sweetheart table later that night. From Sarah’s jewelry and custom-etched perfume from Epcot to their “Up” themed card holder and guestbook no detail was left without a bit of Disney magic (which is just how we like it ; )

The two of them said their vows at the Harborside Chapel, and after a super fun exit and some portraits around the chapel grounds they headed to Safety Harbor Resort & Spa for their reception. We loved that the day felt so much about the two of them and not about the “rules” of what a wedding should be. The wedding party truly included the people most important to them, with Eric including two “groomsmaids” in his bridal party and a best man dance at the reception.

Sarah and Eric, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your best day ever! We have had so much fun with you two throughout this whole process and can’t wait to see you again soon!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
