The Disney fandom is easily one of the most devoted and loyal in the world, bridging every age, cultural, economic divide there is. And when Disney fans show their devotion to Walt’s vision, they tend to go all out. In the past, many couples have used the Disney theme parks as locations for the nuptials to celebrate their love for each other and all things from the House of Mouse. But thanks to PopSugar, we think we’ve found one couple who wins hands down for the most elaborate Disney parks wedding yet.
Let us introduce you to Sarah and Gilbert, two UC Berkeley grads and hardcore Disney fans who recently had their dream wedding at Disney’s California Adventure theme park. The couple’s first date was seeing Disney’s Up, which was maybe an indicator that these two would have Uncle Walt looking out for their relationship. Gilbert popped the question to Sarah with a custom Disney “Adventure Book,” and the eventual engagement photos had a Tangled theme.
But when it came to the actual wedding, these two pulled out all the stops. Sarah arrived in the Cinderella Carriage, the ultimate fairy tale wedding moment. Afterwards, the wedding guests were escorted to their seats via personalized Fastpasses, with each guest receiving glowing wristbands that the wedding DJ controlled with the music. Of course, Mickey and Minnie Mouse showed up to pay their respects to the happy couple, and the wedding guests got to enjoy the final performance of World of Color in their own reserved area. As if that wasn’t enough, Sarah and Gilbert then rented out the Toy Story Mania ride after the park closed for just their wedding guests.
“Sarah and I love Disneyland and have been annual pass holders for the past 6 years, going every chance we get (from runDisney races to family vacations and short daytrips from NorCal),” said Gilbert. “We’ve both been going to Disneyland since we were kids, and it’s always been a home away from home for us. We love the feeling of magic that Disneyland gives us every time we go.”
In perhaps the pièce de résistance, Sarah and Gilbert ended their perfect fairy tale Disney Wedding as the two rode off on the Disneyland Main Street Fire Engine. Although other Disney parks weddings will occur, it’s going to be hard to top Sarah and Gilbert’s nuptials anytime soon.
