Real Wedding Story: Katie & Dan

We love a good proposal story and this one is definitely one of our favorites! Katie and Dan are self-proclaimed Disney nerds, who love going to see every new Disney movie that comes out! Last year they headed on their annual voyage to Disney where Dan had a special scavenger hunt planned for Katie throughout the park. The scavenger hunt ended with Dan waiting for Katie in front of Cinderella’s Castle on one knee!

Katie and Dan’s wedding day featured a little bit of all of their favorite things, because not only do they love Disney, but they are also big fans of all things fall. Black Barn Wedding Venue provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding and even through rain drove their outdoor ceremony inside, there was so much love in their intimate ceremony. Wooden farmhouse tables lined with deep navy runners were accented with glass milk jugs with burgundy mums and gords. The bride also highlighted the colors with copper plates and burgundy napkins. Guest dined on delicious food from a Taste of Heaven catering and enjoyed flavorful donuts for dessert, such as apple cider, pumpkin and frosted blueberry.

One of our favorite memories from their wedding was how much fun Katie and Dan had on the dance floor towards the end of the night. Pro DJ’s LLC. played some of their favorite Disney songs for the couple and their friends to belt out!

Congratulations Katie and Dan!
