Disneyland Hotel Fairytale Wedding

It is always a magical day when Disney wedding images pop into my inbox. This wedding is located at the beautiful Disneyland Hotel in Southern California. With pops of blue and orange to brighten their day, this wedding is full of happiness and love.  One of my favorite images is the one with Goofy holding the ring. Oh my goodness, this is simply adorable, and very cool at the same time. Its Goofy! I mean, how many people can say that Goofy was at their wedding day? Oh my goodness, I almost forgot one awesome detail! Every guest had Mickey Mouse Ears with their names engraved on the back. How cool is that? I just love the fun that is of Disney, and when it is intertwined into a beautiful wedding day, all is complete.  This couple is smiling non stop, and what a joy to see. From a wedding blogger’s view, and one that is a Disney lover, this wedding is in my top favorites.  Kick off the week with a bit of magic and enjoy the images from Jeramie Lu Photography.

Reno and Sparks families head to Disneyland for an amazing fairy tale wedding. This wedding was placed all around Disney at the Disneyland Hotel. The bride is stunning and the late night and dark ceremony brought a level of romance that is hard to replicate. This wedding went in the late night in the very warm Southern California night.

Rehearsal Dinner Event at the House of Blues Anaheim

You know what has my heart in total overdrive right now? I am talking crazy mad love.  A venue and its fabulous location. Location Location Location. Well, this venue has the hottest location of them all. A location which I have been obesseing over for years.  Five words.  “The Happiest Place on Earth”. Yep, that is right.  Well, it is not inside the happiest park in the world, but close enough. Downtown Disney is is the location of this fantastic venue which offers an amazing experience. Nestled in the heart of Downtown Disney, House of Blues Anaheim offers unique venue spaces, delicious cuisines, and live music. House of Blues Anaheim is not just for concerts and dinner. When I visited and had a private tour of the venue, I was really impressed. I was not only impressed with the unique and extraordinary spaces, but I really enjoyed the food. You know I love my food, and good food means everything. However the food was not good, it was EXCELLENT. Oh and I absolutely loved the decor. I could not stop starting. A collection of  amazing art pieces and cool designs which I totally love.

Imagine your rehearsal dinner on the private patio overlooking fantastic views of Downtown Disney. If you want to be closer to the action, then you can choose to have your event on one of the two patios on the ground level.

Now, if you really want to go all out and impress your guests, you can have your rehearsal dinner inside the exclusive space where the stage is the located. How cool would it be to have dinner while a fabulous live band plays music for you and your guest?  It would be like your own personal concert. That would make for a memorable evening.  Check out how amazing this space is! I love it! Total bliss.IMG_3593 IMG_3608

If you want to keep more low key and intimate, then you consider holding your rehearsal dinner inside the restaurant. Guess what? The colors of the ceilings change color! Yep,  pretty neat right? IMG_3673

Destination Wedding: Southern Orange County

One of the most beautiful destination spots for tourists in the United States is Orange County, California. Thanks to mega resorts anchored by the Disney properties, Orange County sees millions of visitors every single year. Tourists and locals alike know that thanks to the amazing amenities, Southern California is a great destination spot for a vacation or for a destination wedding. In this article, we’ll take a look at some great spots to check out in Orange County.

North Orange County Beach Cities

Specifically the cities of Newport Beach and Huntington Beach, the northern beach cities in Orange County are home to some of the wealthiest people in the country. The beaches are world famous and the various amenities ranging from four-star restaurants to five-star resorts makes this an ideal place to visit. I’ve personally attended some mega-weddings at two different resorts in Huntington Beach that were nothing short of phenomenal. At one wedding, which was held as a traditional Indian ceremony, saw over 500 guests with the groom coming into the ceremony with a parade, riding a gorgeous white stallion! I asked the venue if that was normal and they said it was, with the last Indian ceremony having the groom coming in on an elephant!

There’s so much to do and see in these two cities that you’d be remiss to experience Orange County and miss out on either of these two spots. Newport Beach is a great spot if you like to do any sailing or enjoy a calm and romantic dinner cruise. There are also some excellent restaurants here that are often visited by stars. In fact, Bridal Hot List Chief Editor Niloufar Gibson and I once ate at a popular Italian spot and happened to sit next to Michael Buble! You never know what you might experience or who you might run into, but either way, North Orange County has two terrific beach cities to see.

South Orange County Beach Cities

Equally famous are two amazing spots in southern Orange County, specifically Laguna Beach and San Clemente. Both are world famous and frankly have better beaches than the previous two cities mentioned. If you are looking for a beach spot in a traditional “small beach city” then look no further than either of these two spots. While you won’t find quite the level of the resorts or fine dining experiences than you would up north, both of these cities have extremely charming spots to hang out and eat in. There are some magnificent views that make the whole trip worth it. I’ve attended several wedding here in Southern Orange County, all of which were on the beach right next to the waves and totally unforgettable. If you are looking for an amazing on-the-beach destination wedding experience, look no further than Laguna Beach or San Clemente.


If we didn’t mention “The Happiest Place on Earth” as one of the best destination wedding spots in Orange County we would have failed miserably in mentioning the hottest spots! Disney weddings are more popular now more than ever thanks to the recently remodeled California Adventure and the amazing new hotels on the Disney property. There’s four-star hotels, amazing places to eat and endless staff on hand to make sure your entire family has an amazing experience. Ever dream of being a prince or princess and getting married in a magic castle? This is *literally* where that actually happens! While the bill might also be out-of-this-world, maybe you can save a few extra bucks and have the wedding experience of a lifetime that would make all your friends jealous… forever!
