Have you ever dreamed of having a Disney-inspired wedding? Local couple Ben and Kylie Story certainly did, and made their dreams come true by hosting a theme park-lover’s dream wedding at The Ever After Estate this past week.
The wedding invitations were styled like a classic theme park ticket, inviting guests to celebrate the bride and groom at an affair that was very much like “a formal day at a theme park.”
The wedding was hosted at The Ever After Estate, a 62-acre movie-themed estate and vacation home in Clermont, Fla. This location boasts various amenities including 12 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 2 1/2 kitchens, a ball pit room, four arcades, an indoor movie theater, multiple playgrounds, a waterfall-fed pool and a private, nine-hole mini golf course, just to name a few.
The couple utilized the space by creating their own theme park for their wedding, and even had “park maps” for guests.
The wedding had an overall Disney theme, which was evident from the decor, the wedding cake, and even the attire of the bride and groom.
The groom wore a blazer depicting the park map for Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort, while the bride kept her Disney influence to her bouquet, which was made of Disney park maps folded into flowers with Mickey head-shaped pins.
The wedding ceremony featured Disney songs from “Star Wars,” “Toy Story,” and the wedding procession was set to “I See the Light” from the film, “Tangled.”
The reception hosted multiple fun activities and snacks for guests, including a photo booth, miniature golf, caricature artists, a s’mores pit, nitrogen ice cream, cotton candy, popcorn and more. A mermaid could even be found floating in the waterfall-fed pool.
The newlyweds closed out their special day in true Disney Parks style, with their own private fireworks show for the wedding party and their guests.
We wish the best of luck to these newlyweds! Mr. and Mrs. Story definitely know how to do a theme park wedding right. Check out their wedding website here.
